I have reviewed the original listing of Elwood Etter covers supplied by Jack Lewis [see Part 1]. My study, while still incomplete, reveals the following additions, corrections and minor differences to the listing supplied by Jack. A brief note to begin with is that Elwood Obviously made variations of each cover for each event, as I have several covers which are similar, the only difference being one of each has birch bark while the other has no birch bark. This in effect would mean in some cases where Jack has listed one item as having, for eg., birch bark, there are in fact two different versions of that cover, one with and one without bark attached. My initial findings are presented below and I will update the list when more time is available to research (and find) my other Etter covers. Only differences from the original listing are noted.
From the above there are at least 29 new additions or variations and a few corrections. It could be possible that most of the covers exist both with and without birch bark, which could put a collection of Etter covers over the 200 mark.
