TOPSTONE TUESDAY: CAN Y0U IDENTIFY THE MASK OF MYSTERY?


Take a look a the mask pictured in the photo below. Can you identify it? Is it a Topstone mask? It's certainly grotesque enough to be one.




The photo is from a magazine published in 1965 so the time is right for it to be a Topstone. If you know the identity of this mask, please take a moment to answer in the form of a comment at the bottom of this post, and consider yourself an honorary MONSTER MAGAZINE WORLD Doctor of Monsterology!

It could be either the Topstone Pirate or the Devil. It's always tough comparing photos to illustrations, but that would be my guess based on the illustrations in this ad...

Since the title of the story was, "Terror Wears a Devil Mask", my guess is the horns are being held behind the mask in this picture.

Thanks a ton for chiming in, Phantom. I appreciate your expertise! Consider yourself Ph.D'd in Monsterology!
