LOVE IT!!!

Usually when I try to buy something the seller puts the bad place in the tire on the bottom so it can't be seen so easily.

 

That one's right on the top. :(

'59s were green and yellow, that I know for sure, I think the gold color started in '61, someone correct me if I'm wrong.

That one is most likely a 1960. Gold did not start till 1961.

And nearly impossible to find, although could be made easily.
