Estate Auction of Betty James a.k.a. the Slinky Lady

Saturday the central Pennsylvania estate of the matriarch of the toy company was up for auction. It included some unusual versions of that "fun and wonderful toy."
Betty James died in November at age 90. She co-founded James Industries Inc. in Chester County in 1945 with her husband, who invented the springy Slinky.
