Roller Skate Box of a Bad Ass

One doesn't generally think of a roller skating partner from the 1950s as "Bad Ass" but I'm going to say the owner of this box was a tough guy…or he wanted to look like one walking to practice. One Frank Lovejoy according to a metal name tag inserted, and a primitive "FLL" logo he designed himself. A renegade. Maybe he was even the very first skate punk! Tough enough to have 4 Aces in his hand (on one side) and a presumably model-airplane paint Skull and Crossbones on the other.
