    Just took in a old mount to repair two broken tines circa 1975. It should have been remounted but the owner declined. Notice it was a paper form ( you had to install your own back board back then. The flat back eyes and surprising it had probally Jonas plastic earliners , albiet very drummed. No nose detail, nostril just filled in with black wax and putty. Stitches were bunched giving it a mane effect in the back.
    So when the photo's of the World show are posted it will give you an idea of how far the materials and quality has advanced. the mount was rubber stamped form some now defuct taxidermists from Collinsville Il
