Retro 51 Metalsmith Roosevelt

Retro 51 Metalsmith Roosevelt

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.
