I worked a deal with a guy in Oregon, to purchase his set of Boer War Figure 8s. We made the deal and I got them. For the price of shipping, he included a set of homemade Lilly Style Irons. They look to be made from old barn hinges. Crude, but effective! I may put slight bends in the ends of the cuff arms to get it to close up a little better. Just an interesting piece to add to the collection, since I will probably never get a real Lilly Iron! LOL! Ahhhh...one can still dream. Hope everybody gets to find that one special treasure for their collections, this next coming year! Cheers, everyone!
