Awesome videos Jupiter2! Your 1100 line Werewolf is in gorgeous condition. I love the back story of the magic shop and haunted house experience with your original copy. Congrats on scoring a replacement. Man, what a blast that must have been to crack open all those boxes of masks as they arrived at the magic shop. Sounds like a dream job!

Hoping to see some contributions to this thread. I'll snap a few shots myself and add on.

'Fun vids and great topic, jupiter2.

I've told my tale before but since you've chosen to call this "Collection Corner",
I am compelled to spotlight the most fateful corner of my mask collecting life ~



^ It may not look like much anymore, just an empty corner near the ceiling of
Disneyland's magic shop. Back in the 1960s, the first custom DP mask I ever
had once lurked in that corner.



During family visits to Disneyland I could've spent the entire day just watching
that expensive mask dangle over me, taunting me, out of reach in every
conceivable way.



Many months were to pass before Dad finally gave in to my incessant pleas
and bought it for me. For the next ten years we were inseparable best buddies ...
me and the mask, that is ~



It even accompanied me to school on several occasions!



I eventually wore it to death and "retired" it in solemn ceremony but even now
you will still see a DP MUMMY mask hanging in a high corner of my monster room
to honor that cherished memory from childhood ~



Walt Disney was once quoted as saying "it was all started by a mouse".
In my case, it all started with a MUMMY mask. Without it, this Maskahuna
might be a mere menehune today.

Maskahuna, that Mummy is an absolute treasure! Having acquired it in the 60's, is it safe to say that it is of "calendar" vintage? If so, it has to be one of the few remaining masks that have survived from that era.

While I just did a post on these recently they are 2 of my very favorite pieces. After admiring them in the background of Dr. Lady's videos it was my mission to somehow score the Carol Hicks Christopher Lee Frankenstein's Monster and Mummy masks. Took a few years before I had them both but I'm very happy that they are finally in my collection.

The corner MUMMY in my monster room now is just a badly rusted reissue.
I buried my "Calendar" original in the backyard forty years ago, but the magic
mummy mystery didn't end there ... a few years later, I made the mistake of
showing someone "of questionable repute" where I'd buried it. Shortly afterwards,
the grave was robbed!

Since we're on a roll with Mummies here are my Don Post Mummy A & B re-issues.



I purchased Mummy A at Don-Con from Ron Chaney so I had both Ron and Don Post Jr. sign him.



And here's a photo that led a few collecttors to think that Mummy B was a Crayon yellow color. Maskahuna and I had a discussion about this photo. Mummy B was originally a fullers earth color but so many copies are rusted that it was hard to tell. The photo scan in question just had bad color reproduction.
