57 years after the Olympics the inflatable cushion remains in perfect condition! The most impressive thing is that the cushion inflates and appears as though it were made yesterday. Good to know that people watched the Olympics in comfort. The story behind it is also fun with Mr. Reynolds moving to Sparks in 1959 with his mother. She worked as a hostess in the Sparks Nugget coffee shop where she received several Olympic pins and this pillow as tips. The pillow has been stored carefully ever since. Thank you so much Bob and Nancy for the donation and the great story!
