Ricordi 1960

I've been clearing my Father's home... Family photo albums of pictures from 1890 to the present, paintings and keep sakes-
I ran across two gifts of mine for Father's Day 1960;
a clay hand print from kindergarden and an ashtray I picked up at the local 5 n' Dime.
It cost me a dime.
A Beatnik on an ashtray with glued jewel-eyes-

                                                                   his eyes gone now.

I'm sure it was a Mercury Dime I spent on Dad.
