The wig (which is glued to the head) has never been taken off or tampered with in any way. Winchell used this Jerry for what I assume was a while before gifting it to one of his grandchildren in person, around the same year it was made.
I have tried many times to get a clear picture of the writing inside of the head, but the. The most I was able to get was the "WINCHELL" part. Jerry is 100% all original and works perfectly.
The slot jaw does not stick, and the self centering eyes work just fine. The paint job is still in very good condition with only a few minor flaws (see pictures for details).
