    This is the first item I bought at the Rose Bowl this week. One may know taxidermy is my only weakness. It is actually a fiberglass cast.
    When looking at the backside I noted it had a sticker from Lyon's & O'Haver Taxidermy on it. Back in the 1980s I lived 3 blocks I Lived on the 8400 block, same street. Until I saw this sticker I always thought it was Lyon's Haven Taxidermy. I guess if one was a lion that would not be a haven. They always had a great display that could be seen through the windows of their shop.
    The area code on this is 714 which gives a clue to the age of this piece. I think around 1980 the area code was changed to 619 as in Rey Mysterio's signature move. So this is pre 1980.
    As for the type of fish this is it looks a lot like a type of fish I saw in Morrow Bay from the glass bottom boat. It is not a large fish, I think it is about one foot not counting the tail.
    These fish survive in Morro Bay as seals (and probably nothing else) will eat them. Seems an odd trophy but anyway it is now in my sea themed bathroom.
