This is a late 60s/early 1970s piece, mounted on old-growth cypress cut in the early 1970s by a man who was going back into areas cut by the Collier company in the early 20th century and cutting old stumps closer to the ground. 12  Personal collection.  Purchased in 2014 via the Internet.  This piece has a whimsy sticker on the back, which dates it to the late 1960s. 13
14 UF Gator  Collection of Kathryn S., Homestead, Florida.  The "mb" button on this piece has come off, but it once had one.  It was made by Tom and inspired by the fact that his son, Mike, attended the University of Florida in  Gainesville.  It was made with a press mold and then altered by adding eyes and a squiggly line on the tail.  It is about 4" wide by 8" tall.
