DCM pair in holiday colors (Status: Hometown find)

Found this pair of 60s or 70s Eames designed, Herman Miller DCM chairs in my hometown.  They aren't perfect but the price was right.
These two chairs were from a local hospital that, I guess, decided to get some new furniture.

They are both marked with paper labels
and a molded "Designed by Charles Eames.  Herman Miller, Zeeland Michigan" logo.
They both have some defects.  When I found them, some of the black trim band had come loose; I think they were so old that the glue had dried out and the trim band had also dried out and shrunk.  I took a swing at reattaching the trim but they were so stiff that they would not quite touch.

 I'm going to try taking another swing at the green chair, as you see I didn't quite get it right.
Each chair also has a broken foot

 I think I'll try to pick up a couple of feet off ebay.
