These are two more of Jerry's photos ----- don't know if you noticed Jerry , but in both pictures , the rear carving is MISSING ! It seems that they were right down to the wire with the rebuilding of the wagon , and the missing carving was still in the wood carver's shop at the time of loading ! ( can't remember his name ---- is it Homer ??) When finished , it was driven down to the grounds , and attached there . Another story , ------ a picture was taken of the wagon and sent to the place that made those pins we all wore . Well they made the sample pin without the rear carving too ! I saw one ! Those never made it to the counter ! The very first batch HAD a carving on the rear panel .
