Double 'circles' on a printed and die-cut USA mask, purchased from Speakeasy, on Broadway near 11th Street NYC from 1974 onwards

I scanned both sides, deep etched the item and merged the front and back in this detail of the larger mask. Do click on the link, the graphic is sweet-as . . . Speakeasy was run by Bob & Rita Brand, their large shoebox proportioned shop had everything in categories, Mr Peanut, Popeye, Lone Ranger, Hopalong Cassidy, masks, badges, zippos, rubber stamps, cartons, boxes, world fair collectables. You name it they had it . . . I virtually lived there on all of my cross-pacific studio holiday exploits and became firm friends. Bob's tin toy collection was world class (as was Rita)!
