1932 Katkamier catalog notes: "JOSEPH'S COAT. Bud sport of Honorabile. It has a varying color habit with combinations of white, maroon, violet, yellow, and lilac. Intensely interesting. $5.00" note sometimes confused with 'Kaleidoscope' the same catalog gives: "KALEIDOSCOPE. Bud sport of Honorabile. It has a habit of breaking up the maroon color of the falls into stripes, stipples, blotches, and other formations of maroon and yellow. I have examines literally thousands of falls of this bud sport and no two of them have the same color pattern. By shaking the colored glass of a kaleidoscope you change the design. Hence this new sport is appropriately given the name "Kaleidoscope." .50"
