I recently acquired 4 large paper mache/composition large head masks from an older man that said they were from a carnival in southern Iowa.

 

Apparently they would use these costumes to get people to want to come to the carnival. One is Abraham Lincoln, One George Washington, One kind of a scary clown with what looks like real fur for the hair in the back. The last is more of a full body with a head that looks like Pee Wee Herman.

 

The head on that one goes up and down. I am looking for information/value on them.

 

Thanks,
