|    Identifying "Crusty Edges"    |
Below are 2 Examples of the same Doorstop, "JENNY LIND"
The reproduction has been cast poorly & cast iron leakage has occurred.
EDGES -- Rounded & Presice
This doorstop was made by Hubley.
Their molds were well made and fit together nicely.
Note the Openings are not well defined.
The edges have a crust where the metal has oozed
out at the interface of the 2 mold halves.
The Openings under the arms
are so crusty the left side has
completely closed up .
