A comment from one of the buyers on this item
Dear thesnobfactor,Hello Hellooo SNOB: A short story. This 82 year old lady is nicer than nice. I have seen many many reproductions and a least 10 originals in past 5 years on . Your original is by far the very best i have ever seen in my 30+ years of collecting car mascots. So many of this very popular mascot were stolen that in 1932 a serial No. was stamped below the knee area. The one you have went on the 1932 LaSalle. [01370 is the serial No. and not the Mfg. No.] The Mfg. No. for the lady is stamped under the base which you can't see because of the cap that is attached. If the cap was off you would see DESIGN PATENT 81303 stamped into the metal. In my private collection I have 3 1930-32 Cadillac LaSalle mascots .  is a Repro.  is for a 1932 because it has a serial No.  is for the 1930-31 which I purchased with the flowing vail broken off with a clean break . I drilled a 3/32" hole in both pieces and inserted a small metal rod and useing some J.B.Weld to connect.On Mar-29-13 at 14:16:20 PDT, seller added the following information:
I have managed to remove the old radiator cap and indeed our expert is correct the underside does say Design Patent 81303 proving that she is a genuine original if you would like a photo as proof I cannot add to the sale at this stage but send me a message and I will be glad to email one to you
