Could be a prototype label on this Royal Master or mistake or who knows....Appears to be 100% original. I've never seen another one nor any stories or info on a what appears to be DA Aqua-Master blue on a Royal Master label.

Gotta build a new harness for my favorite 50's doubles, a 1955 Seibe Gorman set. I guess I'll be contacting Simonbeans soon.
