What a fantastic pair of the earliest Kirby's. You have done a wonderful job indeed. I agree with Les, these are truly a Kirby collectors dream. Thanks for posting!

These are stunning!

I immediately thought of Jim ( VacMadMan ) when I saw these. Very nice indeed! Curious to know how many of these you took on trade while selling G4's?
