  1. I have picked up a few items from soldiers, who's full time job in the military was to entertain the troops.
  2. A military version of Charlie McCarthy?
  3. I was looking at old posts and since this is still a mystery thought I would bring it back up.
  4. AmberRose - Stories like that make me elevate my anxiety level .....all the treasures I could have saved that are being lost everyday. "Seek professional help" you might say ...not quite yet ...just ...
  5. mmmmm cookie.
  6. I did find this interesting history. http://www.kiplingsociety.co.uk/rg_ubique1.htm
  7. I think this would have been a souvenir for the loved ones of soldiers. Like a lot of embroidered pillow covers that I see frequently. I can't help with the translation right now ... latin I suppose.
  8. I'm late to the party but HAPPY NEW YEAR! Fun group of photos. Nice use of potato, great dog. Shows why you should never get your hand close to a dog's food when it is eating.
  9. I wish the same for you Vetraio50.
  10. An interesting history and great family connection.
  11. Looks a little more sheepish than bullish to me.
  12. Don't know what it is ...but I like it.
  13. Have not been there yet but I am doing a little more work out that way, so if I get a chance I'll stop and take a few picts.
  14. Dassel is just a little West of me but I have never been there. Now I have a excuse to go.
  15. What a fantastic machine, I wonder if one was ever built.
  16. Thank you for posting those links, I like those knives.
  17. I have always thought this type of knife was one of the best designed and made knives. I passed some up many years ago because I just a little more expensive than what I could afford at the time. No...
  18. I put in a request at replacements.com and they identified it within a few hours. Manufacturer: NORITAKE Pattern Name: N3763 Pattern Code: N N3763 They don't have any replacement pieces in that ...
  19. Thanks for the tip DrFluffy. Thanks for the loves kerry10456 and aghcollect.
  20. Considering what retailers charge school kids for these it ought to be made with platinum. :)
  21. Here is a little info from Wikipedia on the airplane in picture 1. The Douglas DC-3 is a fixed-wing propeller-driven airliner. Its speed and range revolutionized air transport in the 1930s and 1940...
  22. That is an incense burner, it's kind of hard to see in the pictures. I'll post some better pictures.
  23. As a side note, I did pick up a "decorator" canoe model like the first one in your post about fakes. Its 28" and looks brand new. I only paid $10 for it at a garage sale and I'll probably trade it ...
  24. Great photos. I see I'm late to the party, you guys are already "bombed" ....nyuk nyuck nyuc. :) How do you spell nyuck anyway?
  25. What a wonderful find. But as you point out BIG. If you have trouble finding a spot for it I could probably make a spot, to store it for you, at my place. :-)
  26. Nice hat. OMG, is it even possible that you have run out of helmets??! :-)
  27. You are only a little ways south of me. Hmmmmm
  28. Looks Great! I love to see them as a group. When you get the store are you going to sell any? I'll take that one, and that one, and can I see that one? :-)
  29. 182 years old and still sounds too familiar.
  30. I am not an expert on artillery shells. This one is obviously for a 5 inch gun but I wonder why it says 38 cal. I suppose the word 'SALUTING' designates this round was for ceremonial use and had no p...
  31. One of the coolest things made out of leather I have seen recently. About how big is it?
  32. Oooops ...forgot to add the link. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Lg-Antique-Buffalo-Skinner-Heavy-Duty-Fishmonger-Cleaver-Knife-w-Clipped-Point-/290929755229?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item43bcc3c45d&nma...
  33. This is the best match I have found so far and now I can add buffalo skinner and fish monger to my search.
  34. Thanks for the love DrFluffy.
  35. I don't know how I missed your comment till now fhrjr2. I didn't get an email as usual. I don't think I have seen that website, I'll have to check it out. "blubber knife", "jungle bolo" hmmm, It ...
  36. I think the box type could be called "clamshell"
  37. Thanks for the loves petey & fhrjr2
  38. OK then. Option two. A bank of teeth from a nut crusher.
  39. I think what looks like a 7 might actually be a 4. http://www.old-smithy.info/bayonets/yataghan%20models.htm
  40. My guess is automotive camshaft and differential housing.
  41. I still have the same brass tag from a piano I scrapped about 15 years ago.
  42. Thanks for the link to gunvaluesboard. I'll have to check it out more in depth, could come in handy.
  43. The '2013 Standard catalog of Firearms' edited by Jerry Lee, lists the value at: NIB 2000, Exc. 1500, V.G. 750, Good 400, Fair 400, Poor 200. I know the good and fair prices are the same but that ...
  44. Interesting ond knife, I like the photographic film holder under it also.
