CURIOUS KID! His book style complete leather case with gold embellishments and a broad brass latch is well worn mostly likely because many people wanted to see the tyke?s archivally taped sixth plate likeness. I can?t believe that he would have naturally placed his hand across his stomach so someone would have instructed him to pose thusly. Very weird don?t you think? He bounced around during the moment of truth yet his expression can still be deciphered as, ?why am I sitting on this chair in front of that machine?? I?m not sure what caused the snowstorm of specks on the right side of his image. Patina is visible plus a couple mold mites. I can tell you that the plain velvet pad inside opposite the boy is the brightest purple color I have ever seen!
