I have posted the pics elsewhere on the Nook, BUT, check this out: it's a Chubby #1 Butterscotch, unsure of the date (50s??) a two-band...but look at the label Smile

Is this a rare thing, or have others seen this oddity before? Clue: look again at the spelling Smile

Not that I'm thinking of selling, but umm, does the funny label thing mean it's a more valuable brush?? I don't care if it is or isn't, but I varnished the label anyway. Protection. I hope that was the right thing to do. Is that the sound of purists groaning? Smile Seriously, though; do people varnish decals to protect them? If not, how come?

Indeed.

No worries.

BTW, since your brush appears not to have been properly sterilized, it's probably a health hazard. Fortunately, I have access to a decontamination facility. I'd be happy to take it off your hands.

I would guess that the misspelling makes it more valuable to collectors, just as a misprint makes a postage stamp more valuable, because of its uniqueness. As far as protecting the labels, I know that purists don't approve, but I used to coat them with a very light layer of clear nail polish to prevent damage. You have to be very careful, however, because the polish, if applied too heavily, can instantly dissolve the label ink and make it smear.

Hi ken; that's a very generous offer, handling hazardous materials like that armed with only some strong splash. I'll take my chances though Smile

Mission accomplished without the slightest smudge. Smile Thanks for the advice.
