From AIS Bulletin #233 Spring 1979 Introducing LOOKINGGLASS EYES (Niswonger '79). Sp 1-76: Blue Lassie X unknown (probably a self). Spuria, 39", Early Mid. This pale yellow edged with charcoal gives the impression of horn-rimmed glasses. It's different, and I think you will enjoy it. $15.00. Cape Iris.
