DR. SMITH MASK #04 (SCOTT DUNKEL)
Received this e-mail, and photos on June 14, 2007:
Hi Robert, give me your opinion on this Lost in Space TV series
Dr. Smith mask? This guy I know is claiming it to be a screen
used mask, posssibly used by stand in's on the show? I have no
iddea? It looks somewhat different than the ones on the show?
Do you think it is a fake, or some limited edition some company
made years ago? Let me know what you think?
PS: It was foam filled years later to keep the shape of the mask.
(*) My Comments:
In my opinion without looking or touching this mask up close,
this in NOT an original mask used on Lost in Space classic
episode, "Space Destructors". This is a very nice detail
fan-made mask. Only one lic. Company mask was ever produced
(Paper Magic) honoring Jonathan Harris famous role. There
has been several fan-made mask available in limited editions,
which are also featured on our website.
When buying any props 'buyer or seller beware'. Be careful on
what you are buying and ask any and all questions before
shelling out alot of money on the item. Look for age, wear,
smell, and paper history on the item. If a seller claims it's
real, ask to see his track record, and how many years has he/she
been selling/buying props? An excellent record, and word of
mouth from other people will speak for itself when purchasing
any items, specially on eBay!
