NOTES:
 
   Based off a 1935 two piece eye Bars patented design, post war mask development takes the direction of the one piece cast constructed frames. The Spalding patent featured a one piece molded frame but with two "eye bars" affixed to it. Full one piece cast magnesium catchers masks become more common throughout the 1940's and into the 1950's. This design with the padding lace to the frame, will carry over into the 1950's until manufactures start to use snap on pads in the mid 1950's. Leather tabs or flaps, that extend from the pads were wrap around the frame are secured by lace.

 This mask features a one-piece magnesium frame with two 5/8-inch cross bars, aka "Eye Bars." This design offered "Perfect Vision and absolute protection." The face and chin pads are lace onto the frame though grommets on the leather tabs and flaps. These frames seem to be of the same design used by all the major sporting goods manufactures and might have been made at the same factory. The difference is usually with the padding and straps used for the mask. Adjustable heavy elastic and leather head straps were attached to the frame with the face pad tabs overlapping at the ears.
