  1. Wolf, I had the same Ebay experience when I listed my Marine Corps utility cap even with it's sweat band! I guess the story attached to such items demands a premium. USMC '67-'69
  2. Wonderful looking piece. Apparently in very good hands. I second trunkman's comments. Keep up the great postings, blunderbuss!
  3. Forgot to add this link. http://artworld.york.ac.uk/personView.do?personUrn=1.00039&br=no
  4. Great piece! Painting is wonderful, but I am particularly drawn to the ornate frame. I wouldn't put it on the moving van.
  5. Of all the things we carry, nothing has the power to take us back again as does such a photo. Wonderful story. Thank you for sharing.
  6. Militarist - Very much appreciate your comments. It was going to be discarded, but I found it very unusual & the art work so detailed that I suggested we hold on to it. After receiving information pro...

  11. This link might help..... http://www.artoftheprint.com/artistpages/hallen_and_weiner_christmasnight.htm
  12. Wonderful display. Thank you for sharing.
  13. Very nice set. It is unfortunate with photographs like this when the soldier is not identified. I always find myself wanting to know the personal history; era, unit, battles fought, MIA/KIA, survivor....
  14. Hi Anna - If you do a search for Benjamin lamp socket, I believe you will find some useful information. Good luck!
  15. Nice looking piece!
  16. Wonderful piece of history! Could have used it to get my daughters up when they were teenagers!
  17. I still have mine, too! It's from 1967. Now use it to carry emergency gear in my car. Ironic come to think of it.
  18. Hello from Long Island! Very nice shades & informative history. Must confess, most of it was news to me. Thank you! I just finished rewiring & replacing sockets on a HANDEL table lamp with original HA...
  19. Wonderful history! Thanks for sharing.
  20. Very nice collection and made even more interesting by the research you provided. Thanks for sharing!
  21. Love the chess set. I have no idea of it's value, but you might find some useful information by reading the responses on this site. Good luck! http://www.chess.com/forum/view/chess-equipment/antique-...
  22. Forgot to say that if it hasn't been cut off there should be a legend at the bottom that says "United Airliner over San Francisco Bay".
  23. The poster was done in the 1930's and is of a DC3 over San Fran. Bay. You are correct that the work was done on Foil. Nice item. Definitely a keeper!
  24. I have seen such documents have value to collectors. Civil War items are especially sought after. However, other factors such as condition, are there any well known individuals listed, is it associate...
  25. So, by definition, at 62 I guess I am considered an OVERHAUL rather than a RESTORATION! LOL I will keep an eye out for you on Ebay. Thank you for the response and clarification.
  26. Wonderful looking item. Great restoration! Do you have others? Do you sell them?
  27. Love the graphics! Thanks packrat.
  28. Love the mirror! We have been searching for one like this for our formal living room. Thanks for sharing!
  29. packrat - I'm reminded of Tim O'Brien's short story, "The Things They Carried" and how we, the survivors, also can be defined by those "things" we hold on to. In sharing your dad's story you have als...
  30. Handsome man, your dad. Thanks for sharing.
  31. Love the jacket as well as the history. Your good research on it brings it alive! Thanks for sharing.
  32. Fantastic collection! Nice that people know where to take uniforms that they are unable to pass down.
  33. LOL! Sounds like it could have been the forerunner to today's medical insurance company consolidations
  34. Striking features! I agree with inky, very proud looking.
  35. Wonderful pictures & history. VMI Dress Grey uniform worn with either matching grey trousers or the more formal parade whites. Modeled after West Point's. More moments in time cemeted forever. Thank y...
  36. Great photo!
  37. I have an old Morris style chair with similar features. Very interesting.
  38. Saw the episode and love the piece. Great find!
  39. Great looking tank!
  40. So, if we don't hear from you in a timely way, we shouldn't assume that you were the victim of an alien abduction. LOL! Enjoy your travels.
  41. Nice addition to your collection.
  42. I think it could be helpful if you were able to make out the engraving on the chest medal.
