had. In the end, I decided the Lionel just doesn't need a case. Here's why --
This particular Lionel bug is NOT pristine, has NOT been
restored, indeed it looks like a tool and not a showpiece. I finally
decided that putting it in a display case would be akin to putting a
ball peen hammer in a display case. Better to just treat it as a
tool and USE it! :-)
If I ever get the gumption to refinish it and make it look
marvelous, I just might spring for a case -- but not right now, it
would just be a little out of character.
