Another way was that a seller ( P V R in New Jersey ) would put several helmets
in one photo ( shot with a Polaroid camera ) and send it by mail with a hand written
price list .If you saw something to buy , make a quick phone call to make
sure that you the first in line .
I bought several that way .
Interesting! I was 4 in 1963, so these were out of my price range. Does anybody remember 'House of Swords' out of independence MO? Same with Joe, call to be sure it was available and then send a check.
I went there one time . A collecting trip ,also went to Manion's .At the House of Swords
I expected a store .He operated from his house basement .No display .
Swords were in old wooden barrels .Other stuff stacked on top of a pool table
which was covered with a sheet of plywood
