    It looks like Simpson last for what that's worth. The quarters are the same as my Simpson PTBs.

    It appears to be a special makeup based on model 10080.

    I found this pic on AAAC, but it was cited as an SF pic by Kolecho.Is the 2nd shoe from the left ruby? Are they: saddle, ruby, cognac(?), burgundy, black, & green?

    Knowing who the OP was, I was able to find the post. He labeled them as: cognac, ruby, cuero, bordeaux, black, olive.

    There's a closeup of the ruby shoe (I think) here.

    Well,,,,,,,,,,f&%k me sideways.

    Until today the idea of 'Ruby Shell' had slipped past me.

    Thanks muchly to one and all for adding a new 'must have' to my shell collection! :cloud:

    That might be tempting enough to end my 'no buy' streak.

    I would like Ruby but it depends on the style.

    NAMOR + shell cordovan + SF = evil. (I realize that this make's me Satan's Little Helper in this instance.) Since Corthay has already taken Satan, maybe these ruby slippers should be los Diablos.
