  1. Thanks pops - just checked that - I wonder if I get a CW t-shirt now ;)
  2. Check the pewter parts for a makers mark - sometimes on the thumb piece or stamped inside the rim. The 1399 would just be a pattern number.
  3. If you google that Rising Sun Stove Polish - the two halves are shown as a circa 1880 bifold trade card. - Incidentally, they also show some with white folks, obviously caricatures - the company was i...
  4. Thanks pops - this is special to me as it was my mothers and I will restore it to its original condition to pass along to one of my nieces.
  5. Check the CW radios section - several of those guys restore radios and show them on their postings board - maybe one of them is near you or can steer you in the direction to obtaining the parts needed.
  6. Love it but only see Jack Frost - where are the others?
  7. I have the 1970 Boss 302 in Orange and black (Monogram Kit# 2923) and the 1970 Boss 429 in Yellow and black (Monogram Kit# 2728) - both built but still packed
  8. Me too - I may start a "guess who made me" collection LOL
  9. You're welcome mowgli - of course it doesn't help a bit if the sticker is missing
  10. Reference: Remember these are foil or paper labels, not marks. 1946-1953 Large crimson label with gold or silver trim. Reads Lefton’s Exclusive Japan 1953-1971 Red label with gold or silver trim. ...
  11. According to a Lefton collector website - the "Lefton Trademark Exclusive Japan" sticker label was used between 1960 and 1983
  12. Does the machine slide forward on those rails so a sign could be positioned beneath the press?
  13. There's a mark on the blade tang - what does it say?
  14. The great operator was the one and only Ruth Buzzi
  15. Not a "mis-print" - called a "clipped planchet" - the planchets are cut from a strip and then enter the minting press. Your planchet entered already clipped. Value for this error is around $7.
  16. The actual term for this is "clipped planchet" - it would have to be evaluated by a collector or coin dealer to be authenticated as a mint error. I base that on the fact it is dated 2001 and it is som...
  17. No - on the older stamps the grading is the opposite, the more centered the image is, the more collectible. - If you get NEW stamps now with off-center printing or the die-cut is off-center could be v...
  18. email is at the top of my posting board
  19. Canada (Ottowa printing) issued 1888 (5 cents) KM# 42 - value $4 but yours is off-center print so maybe $2.50 - Feel free to email your stamps to my email if you feel uncomfortable posting them here. ...
  20. Just keep posting them Antiquehunter1 - I will tell you what they are, just don't put antique in the heading or press the "unsolved" button. - unwanted comments on your postings can easily be deleted.
  21. It is not an unusual perforation - the point I'm trying to make is that you say just because it has perforations, it was not originally issued "imperforate" - The ink marking certainly matters because...
  22. "Old Willow" pattern - or in your case "Blue Willow" FAQS - International Willow Collectors http://www.willowcollectors.org/faq.html
  23. Yes there are five different variations of the 1906 issue stamp; #320 - color "carmine" type I printing #320a - color "lake" type II printing #320b - color "scarlet" type I printing #320c - color ...
  24. Comment #3 - "Imperforated stamps were issued but all copies were privately perforated with slightly larger oblong perforations at the sides." - KM320d is a Schermack type III - The Schermack Type III...
  25. Repeat from comment 5 - Did you write "imp." next to it or is that how you found it?
  26. valentino97 - so funny, there actually is a German band called "The Beez"
  27. It's only 50 years old next year so it's only "half-antique" - but it's still something I show my nieces and they say "what the heck is that??"
  28. This actually has a little more value than 2¢ - depending on which variation Did you write "imp." next to it or is that how you found it? - It does appear the "spot" you refer to is in fact what is c...
  29. It's a byrd, it's a plain, it's Supperman
  30. oops - after reading ozmarty's comment it appears ther was also a later issue 1935 (KM125) red-brown - watermark multiple crowns and multiple C of A's The book value of this variation in used condit...
  31. This stamp was issued in several variations, mainly color and watermark, in 1913 and 1915 (both brown color) with one type of watermark, and in 1916 it was brown color, in 1924 it was violet-brown (th...
  32. You are correct - originally known as "The Jet Set", they decided to rename themselves The Byrds, a moniker that retained the theme of flight and also echoed the deliberate misspelling of "The Beatle...
  33. Imperforated stamps were issued but all copies were privately perforated with slightly larger oblong perforations at the sides.
  34. France catalog# KM109 (1 centime) - regular issue stamp issued from 1900 to 1929 - not rare (value 35¢) - even old stamps are plentiful because they were printed in the millions and many were in fact ...
  35. The catalog# is Australia #KM198 - issued Feb. 19, 1945. It is a commemorative stamp for the Inauguration of the Duke of Gloucester as Governor General. Same value in both mint and used condition 25¢
  36. First issued 1903 (KM#319) - issued again imperforate 1906 (KM#320) - someone initialed "imp." so I would assume it is the 1906 issue
  37. They are available from 2" all the way to 28" - filled glass tubes only, no backing
  38. Check ebay for "old stock thermometer glass" - there is a 10" one on there now for $15 - I don't know what yours measures.
  39. They are well-made and also mass-produced primarily for tourists to Europe since after the war - my dad brought back a few steins after his military service but they were made pre-war and came from th...
  40. AH - I think the main point here is that you are based in the UK so you don't have knowledge of our famous "Hobby Lobby" stores that specialize in knock-offs and fantasy gifts. Many of us here have ha...
  41. Looney Toons charm bracelet (also made in silver) - available through Warner Brothers Stores - if you bought just several years ago, probably made in China under license from WB
  42. Cotfer is a manufacturer of various souvenirs since 1923 (still in business) - a similar stein on ebay (#2000) is described as 1970's and is listed at around $15.
  43. Minimal value over face in that condition - cannot be redeemed for silver anymore; average price 1.75 each, maybe 2.00 for the star note
  44. Ambers right - hunter - see the bird in the dogs mouth
  45. See other comment - both these are Lefton China made in Japan - they would have had a foil label sticker on the bottoms which has been removed.
  46. These were made by Lefton China in Japan - both this one and your other H6774 Circa 1960's - 1970's
  47. Strange that two different dogs have the same pattern number on the bottom
  48. The first one is plum dumplings YUM, the second one is like you say for Bundt Cake YUM YUM
  49. These are current Complete collection of Westland Hot Diggity Dog collectable ... http://www.giftsfromadistance.com/hot_diggity_dog?b=1
