Description
According to Wheeler's description, this green and yellow plastic model represents a square antipyramid intersecting a square antiprism. The model is hollow (one end face is missing, as are two side pieces) and appears to be only a square antipyramid missing one two side faces and the bottom (or possibly the antiprism). A mark on the model reads: 756 Q18.
