PPR viewmaster woman color

P-R PHOTOS/JULIE ROBINSON ROBARDS Rona Mansfield of Whiteface Chalet in Wilmington still cherishes the Sawyer's View-Master she received for Christmas in 1962, calling it "the best toy ever." Her favorite subjects were America's Scenic Places. The reels could be purchased at three for $1 or for 35 cents each. Today, reel packets sell in the secondary market for up to $15. Her boxed View-Master set with all the original reels has a replacement value of $65 to $80.
