This is the second ornament that I found that was similar to one featured in an episode of t.v.'s " Storage Wars ". The episode was called Driving Miss Barry, which I had taped when it appeared on a re-run. There is a third hood ornament on that episode that was called 'action twins' which should be super hard to find ! Also the appraisers prices were wrong. The last hood ornament was an action twins mascot, and insted of a grand the last time one sold was for 2000 dollars and that was 6 years ago !~
An airplane mascot which I bought as it is a rare one which comes up for sale rather seldom, I had seen one a while ago on ebay but I believe I saw some flaws with it.
This one is illuminated also, so will hopefully get it working again soon, just love it ! On one side of the plane the light is red and on the other side is green because of a orange and green filter on the sides. The expert who looked at it on the show said it was from the late 1920's or 1930. I did see it in one of my books now saying it is of 1927.
