**email from Jeff Burkhardt to Ferdinand Meyer 17 April 2011…regarding our respective Lightning Rod Ball collections…
Ferdinand- You got balls, I got balls, but do ‘ya have these balls?
Yes, the 5-1/2″ POINT PLEAT is a “big-boy”. It dwarfs “big” SCA quilt! Collar embossing-“Pat’d July 3rd 77” Faint haze, some soil too. Maybe all washable, but like to keep dirt to validate that it was “up”. No cracks from chipping on the one collar. EX- Russell Barnes coll. , a TEXAS collector. Ever meet him?
