Just a brief word about the Chief Meyers Mitt. I was the winning bidder, coming out of glove collection add-ons hibernation to go after this one. It's a model I've wanted for as long as I've known enough to want it. Maybe 15 years or so. I received it yesterday and it's fine; great strong stamping and original lace. just a really nice example. The thing that I have to mention is that it's much darker than the photos suggest. Much darker. I like it, I'm keeping it, but I could easily see someone else getting really annoyed by the difference in color between the photographs and the actual mitt. It's clear all these seller's gloves had the same brightness to them (as pictured). I would have preferred a more accurate set of photos when considering it as something I wanted to go after. Just sayin'.
Attached are photos of the front and back from the day I received the mitt. It cleaned up a little, got a little lighter, but nothing like the seller's photos. I love it just the same,
