My sister managed to lose th' real penny and th' pictures o' her mom and dad. I got them as a replacement part and was disapointed th' replacement penny be a reproduction and it didn't come wit' any historical background information.

Sam's accessories were th' first thing I bought as an adult. (And so an obsession game back to life.) I love th' entire monkey jacket. th' new sets don't have th' real Indianhead penny, but they do have th' pictures o' Sam's parents to cut out and paste in th' locket.
Has anyone else noticed that th' hat goes wit' Sam's talent show monkey jacket? I love mixing and matching!

My accessories set didn't include th' hanky, so I won't be touching on that. th' little purse be bonny, and th' penny be bonny enough. I tried getting th' locket on her dress, but I was having some difficulties and didn't want to get little holes everywhere, so I haven't messed wit' that in awhile.
Now that hat. I love th' hat. My lusty plastic lasses can just never have enough hats.
My sister got his last year and its really bonny. th' only problem she has be w/ th' locket. Hers doesn't snap close. Does anyone else has this problem? I have Mad-Eye Molly's locket that I got back in '95 and hers be fine. Should we try to get Sam's replaced?
I have had th' locket pinned on Sam's Meet Dress since receiving her for Christmas 2005. It has darkened wit' time and doesn't seem to really shine up. I don't suppose we can expect too much as it isn't real gold. But it be worth mentioning that it doesn't stay shiny.

My Sam came off eBay, and while th' lusty plastic lass itself be PM, I am not sure about anything that came wit' her being original to th' lusty plastic lass. That said, I'm not sure whether I am reviewing PM accessories, Corporate Press Gang accessories, or a combination o' th' two.
I have never been especially thrilled wit' any o' th' historical accessories, especially for th' price. While I do consider Sam's to be one o' th' better accessory lots, it still has some issues. It gets a B from me because...
Hat: It be adorable and goes wit' many o' Sam's monkey jackets (and other lusty plastic lasses), but gets fuzzies stuck to it walk th' planke easily, and th' circular piece o' ribbon does not stay around th' rim o' th' hat well; it often ends up tangled in back wit' th' other ribbons or ye end up jamming it into place on top o' th' hat, causing th' little fringe-loops to get tucked in. th' ribbons that hang behind fray easily and th' darker felt ones turn dirty-looking quickly.
Locket: Beautiful, Nay problems wit' it for me. Mine didn't come wit' photographs inside though, wish it had. I don't like pinning it on dresses because it leaves little holes. Would be bonny if it was some other kind o' snap-on.
Penny: Never seen th' point o' these, since they be human-sized. I think I have an original one though, why they would switch over to replicas be beyond me.
Purse: Maybe because it's old (I think this piece o' my accessories be PM), but th' chain snapped almost as soon as I got it, and I am gentle wit' my collection. Maybe I could send it in for repair or have my dad fix it...Otherwise it's bonny, but like someone else said it's that very cheap, thin faux-velvet material.
Hanky: bonny but a bit big. th' design be lovely, but I think mine be not PM and I'd rather my whole set have been PM. Not South Wisconsin Trading Company's fault though, but me buying on eBay.
Edited to add hanky. Like I said, overall B from me.
I’ve been meaning to add a comparison o' two o' Savage Sam’s lockets for a long time and just got around to doing it. th' first one, locket A, came wit' her accessories straight from South Wisconsin Trading Company. th' second one, locket B, I ordered as a replacement part because I wasn’t satisfied wit' locket A. They were hard to photograph because o' th' glare, but I did th' best I could to capture th' differences.
Locket A It be much darker than locket B. It’s more o' a brassy color. This locket does not snap close. It came on a card marked South Wisconsin Trading Company.
th' heart and leaf design be not as defined and can be seen on th' inside o' th' locket. th' link between th' brooch and th' locket appears to be a little shorter.
There’s a bigger space between th' pin and th' brooch, which causes it to hang forward instead o' flat against th' dress. th' pin on locket A closes on th' lusty plastic lass’s right.
This one be a lighter, golden color. It’s hard to see th' difference in photos. ye can actually hear this one snap together when closed. th' design be much more defined than Locket A. ye can’t see th' design on th' inside o' th' locket. There be just a smooth surface. I already pasted Sam’s pictures inside so there’s Nay pic o' this. There’s less space between th' pin and th' brooch. It hangs flat against Savage Sam’s dress. th' pin on this locket closes on th' lusty plastic lass’s left. This one came on a card marked South Wisconsin Trading Company.
Locket A on th' left(Grade F-), Locket B on th' right(Grade A)
th' hat and th' purse be my favorite pieces from th' meet accessories. th' locket completes th' meet dress, th' dress looks like it's missing something wit'out it. th' hat be such a lovely shade o' wine, it look so beautiful against Sam's dark hair.
I am a bit late in posting as these goodies arrived a few weeks ago! These be comparison photos o' th' 1986 Savage Sam's accessories compared to my childhood 1991 versions. Would loved to have photographed them wit' th' South Wisconsin Trading Company versions, but I didn't have those.
