Now, a grail to me isn't something hard to find, it's something damn near impossible to find.

Pop over to my master want list, and you will see that I reserve the term for that which is exquisitely rare.

So when I say it's a grail, I mean exactly that.

I'd be surprised if another member has it in their collection, to be honest.

Again, peek at that want list. It's literally number two on my most coveted items.

And today, I made it mine.



I plan a full article on the piece, and what it means to me, very soon, but for now I'm basking in the awesomeness of finally acquiring the unobtainable.

Here is an original House Ad advertising it. It came from an issue cover dated 1961.

Thanks guys! This one is a huge find for me. There's tons of personal, and actual history behind this piece, and I can't wait to tell the story.

I am eventually going to remove the item from my wantlist. But for illustrative purposes, the item is currently merely struck through.

Saw a painted one on ebay couple days ago.   Was the painted one a later release?

Nope. If its painted, either someone painted it, or it's an unlicensed knockoff.
