Bill died suddenly on August 2, 1971, which abruptly ended a good business relationship and friendship. Rod is in excellent original condition, in the original bag and case (with Carlson business card affixed as a label) and will be accompanied by a copy of the original invoice to Rosgen. A unique opportunity to own a fine example of Sam Carlson’s earlier work. $6995.
