Hello to all other collectors.
Here are four more pictures of some of my signs.
The lady with the sheep is an American, double sided paper sign, that advertises a sheep shearing device from 1904.
The Robertson Highland dip is from New Zealand
The Cooper's blow fly is an iconic sign from the UK
Lastly the Quibells sign was one that was totally knackered and now has a life again.

    Love the signs. LOVE the name (rusycombs)! You'll have to bring me up to speed...what's "totally knackered"? Thanks

    I believe 'totally knackered' would be like saying it's roached.

    Please help

    Recently my mother died leaving lots of antiques and my step-dad nowhere to turn for help.
    While tiring to locate legal papers we found all kind of antique items.

    To mention just a few.

    1. 1905 Kodak Camera in a leather case
    2. Opera glasses from, I believe, 1910 in a leather case
    3. Pictures that are on pieces of metal almost like a hologram and in small hard leather carved cases

    Please, he needs help in obtaining the value and an appropriate place for them to be placed.
    We desperately need your help.

    Sincerely,

    1905 camera goes in the art and photos section. Glasses go in the pottery and glass section, and pictures go into art and photos, again. Now, you can get legit info, hope it turns out good.

    Hello from George Grant
    Thanks for all the comments. I thought at the time that I may cause some confusion with the term totally knackered. It is Australian slang for completely stuffed, or totally wrecked.
