About the Featured Objects
After 150 years of use and neglect, coach 65 had turned almost black from darkening varnish layers. Some thought it had been in a fire and christened it “Old Smoky.” Beginning in 1997 the Autry Museum began careful removal of varnish which revealed the original paint scheme, color and decorative details.
