The word is these were made by an inmate in a prison from popsicle sticks, but we have no documentation. They are however very unique. Needs some work to restore the sails to their normal status. They are quite old. Not sure as to the worth if any to a collector. Any ideas out here.

    Pop, we are cleaning out and getting rid of 'stuff', just wondering if anyone thought these might be worth something to a see if there's any interest out here to someone that might recognize the workmanship of the maker. Word has it that the person who made them was related to a famous C/W singing star.

    Didn't say I was trying to sell, ideas on worth, is not selling, seeing if it might be recognized by the relatives of the inmate that made them is not selling, don't understand your comment. Everyone on here is always asking for the worth of something, mine is different in actually looking for someone who might recognize it. Thank you
