  1. You are most likely right since further research on my part indicates that I was confused by information which has since been proved to be incorrect. Here is what I subsequently discovered; " When Joh...
  2. I was going on the serial number & information that indicated that models could be differentiated by odd/even numbers. I guess the history, when received from Colt, will confirm. Thank you for the in...

  16. Very nice!
  17. Sounds like your dad has had a true life long love affair with this car. I can understand why he would want to leave you, his son, his most precious possession. I hope you find a way to hold on to ...

  19. ho2cultcha, very interesting. I assume that would be Guy Arthur Wiggins, who last I heard, was alive & still painting in NYC. Thanks for the post.
  20. Thank you for looking Manikin & SEAN.
  21. Very nice display. I enjoyed looking at each item. Thanks for sharing.
  22. Wonderful piece. Reminded me of the Pawn Stars episode when the woman brought in a spider piece of jewelry she had inherited & that had been in her dresser for years. She hated it because it was a sp...

  27. Do like Monet's work. Had a copy of his hanging in my office for years. Always found it relaxing, especially on those really difficult days. Hence, although just a copy, it was priceless to me! Enj...
  28. Round Blue patch w/gold wings & white star = Army AirCorps Class A patch Square Blue patch w/gold eagle & white star = US 2nd Army AirCorps patch Diamond Red patch w/globe & eagle = USMC 3rd Aircraf...
  29. 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
  30. Wonderful looking piece. Apparently in very good hands. I second trunkman's comments. Keep up the great postings, blunderbuss!
  31. Forgot to add this link. http://artworld.york.ac.uk/personView.do?personUrn=1.00039&br=no
  32. Great piece! Painting is wonderful, but I am particularly drawn to the ornate frame. I wouldn't put it on the moving van.
  33. 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.
  34. This link might help..... http://www.artoftheprint.com/artistpages/hallen_and_weiner_christmasnight.htm
  35. Wonderful display. Thank you for sharing.
  36. 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....
  37. Hi Anna - If you do a search for Benjamin lamp socket, I believe you will find some useful information. Good luck!

  43. 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-...
  44. 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".
  45. 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!
  46. 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...
  47. 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.
  48. Wonderful looking item. Great restoration! Do you have others? Do you sell them?
  49. Love the graphics! Thanks packrat.
