The latest addition to my Retro 51 Metalsmith collection is the Roosevelt which is shown above. There’s actually two new ones. This one was a slam-dunk to add. I skipped the “Betsey” for now but I have this compulsion to keep the collection complete. I added the ugly Eisenhower to be a completest, so I figure it is only a matter of time before I add the Betsey. Looks like a good choice for a fourth of July purchase.
