The newly sealed quarter plates are kept in a double, front to back compartments, wonderful mother of pearl case. The woman?s portrait has the strangest surface degradation either Casey or I have EVER SEEN. Cleaned with cyanide many years ago, three-quarters of the silver inside the brass oval is covered in funkadelic mold growth, BUT under the mat the surface is pristine. Mercifully, those horrible hands didn?t touch the lovely lad who held the largest hoop in a dag that I have ever seen. There is a mold spider above his head and tiny mat abrasions. An exceptional childhood memory!
