Heavily into surfing and traveled and competed for many years. Now doing 50+ knots in my Seadoo jet boat & playing with my antiques, replaces dropping in on a 20 foot face. Have a lawyer daughter who lives in NY and two teenage boys 13 & 15 who live nearby me with their mother. Coin collecting is my passion and have quite an extensive collection. Too bad it spends 99.9% of the time in bank vaults. I do get visitation whenever I want and have pics which are the next best thing to being there. Semi retired but not by choice. Have an eBay business selling coins & jewelry under the user name Investor1908 and have a web site that I'm in the process of putting together so that I may be able to possibly make a living doing what I do best and that's "anything coins & collectibles". Divorced but would entertain the idea of a serious relationship, but only with the "right" woman. I have been burned twice so I'm definitely a little hesitant. Both of my "ex wives" were considerably younger than I. And I need someone younger so that they can "keep up". I would consider a fit significant other between the ages of 25 & 45 who loves "vintage anything". I do not believe any more that "opposites attract". Compatibility is "everything or should I say is "most" everything. A person that loves the ocean and that has collections is a quite compatible match, in my book. And in "inanimate" items, well, I love anything old. The older the better. My son summed it up well when he said several years ago, "dad, our house looks like the Cracker Barrel" I'm an eclectic collector "full bore" and love & respect those that are the same. Please take the time to enjoy looking at a few things that have "made themselves at home" with me. Thanks for taking a peek. Best regards, Kerry (Read more)

  1. Been outta town Judbloom but without a pic it would be hard to even guess. I know pre 1907 U.S. gold but little about foreign gold except the pieces I have. Again sorry for taking so much time to get ...
  2. Well I've been gone for a year and took the boat all the way down to the Keys in S. FL. and did some small island hopping to a few of the Bahama Islands. But met a really nice girl, actually a couple ...
  3. Hi Crystal, I've been out of the country for a few months and am just getting back and getting around to thanking those that stopped by to take a peek at some of my stuff. I was just looking at Hobbna...
  4. I've been out of the country for the last few months and hadn't made contact on this site but just wanted to thank Mrj303 for stopping by and presenting a comment that is too true.lol But then comes d...
  5. These pitchers still elude me as to what they are and what they are worth. I am in the process of selling out my entire collections of everything posted here and then some. I haven't listed these pitc...
  6. Hi caddman2, The U.S. mint started the American Silver Eagle program in 1986. The mints versions are 1 troy ounce each. It was so popular that other refiners minted larger/heavier copies in pure (999)...
  7. Hey, have you guys seen my boat? (wonder how long it would take for all of you sleuths to guess the correct year model of it? hint... there is a pic of the exact same boat, right down to the decals wi...
  8. I really don't think I'll change a thing on the pic. I kinda like it the way it is. And also I consider all who made comments as "part of the nest". Thanks again pop. You actually did a huge favor to ...
  9. Thank you StihlCollector for your expanded comments on this piece. I appreciate it tremendously.
  10. Wellllllll...... About all I can say is that there now seems to be only one matter left to discuss. And that's, my mother wasn't entirely honest about her age at the time of this photo being taken. Ha...
  11. Thanks Rivertrout, Glad to have you in the middle of the controversy with the rest of us. Be sure to come prepared with a helmet and safety glasses and a "billy club" and possibly a get away jeep in c...
  12. Did you mean to say "JOY"?? Or did you really mean to say "nightmare"?? I tend to think it's closer the latter, rather than the former. LOL I will let you know if I want to involve others in the searc...
  13. Thank you Kerry. I always seem to be in the middle of a controversy. I'm just standing by my statement of at least 3 or 4 times that this pic was taken no later than 1940 and unless there was some tri...
  14. Thanks for stopping by shortfellow. I haven't seen another either. But I'm not a collector of tobacco tins, even though I really like them. This one I just ended up with, along with the old clothespin...
  15. I'm just gonna hang onto them because they are old and because they were dads. I would never think of actually putting them into an M-1 and firing the rounds. Personally I don't think they would be a ...
  16. These two coins are encapsulated and graded by respectable third party graders of PCGS & NGC. In the degree of mint state that these are, the coin on the left is worth today about $1900. The coin on t...
  17. I'm not sure about the cars in the pic but one thing I'm positive on is, that this pic could be no later than late fall 1940 because my dad joined the Army in late Nov. 1940 and I'm positive my mother...
  18. Actually both myself and my ex-wife have contacted every possible branch as to the whereabouts of this record and that record. But from the limited time she spent on it before we split up several year...
  19. Thanks for the correction on the name of the rifle. Now that you mentioned it, I remember that being the case. Just curious as to why you don't think having the ammo around for a gun one doesn't own. ...
  20. Thanks guys for all the info and all the tips as to how to continue to proceed. Much of the info I've found out came from my uncle. (my moms brother/dads brother in law) He shared many items of info t...
  21. Yes. Living in Fl. is very rough on firearms. All of mine stay oiled real good and even more so after handling. Thanks for the tip on the oil and for stopping by to take a peek, along with the comment.
  22. Thanks but I collect coins, not currency. That is unless it was very inexpensive. These notes are worth very little over their face value unless they are in almost perfect shape and/or are "star notes...
  23. I am still doing investigations with the war dept and military records as to why there are discrepancy's as to my fathers war record. I know, and records show that, he was wounded twice, but yet there...
  24. I'm not positive as I'm only going by what my mom said her age was at the time, and she was born in '21. (but then again, you know how women are when it comes to their age) This may have been right be...
  25. I know the area well. I had a rental house on 2235 Lake Lucina Dr east and two others on Almira st. and Windemere dr.. The houses were built in the late 1950's by William Cesary and they were $7000 ne...
  26. Whatever it is I wish I owned it in the shape it was in when these pics were taken. What a surf wagon. One day I'm gonna find one I can afford. Also nice new addition to your stable of cars by the way...
  27. American Cut Glass sounds much better to me than "lead crystal". I guess it's just 'cause it has the word lead in it. Thanks again Mark.
  28. This is one of my favorite pieces, if not my most favorite. I will do as you said and see if I can find any markings. I have looked at the pieces somewhat closely before, but not the way you recommend...
  29. Thanks again Mark. As soon as I get to a breaking away point, I want to go and take a look at your items. I just joined this site a little over a month ago and I am spending at least an hour or two da...
  30. Thanks a bunch Mark for that very informative post. Lead crystal is something I've always loved but know very little about. I did have an "old timer" talk to me briefly at a flea market once, and gave...
  31. One sweet looking lady! Very nice indeed. I've been itching to get me one for a couple years now. I kept thinking the urge would subside, but it hasn't. And now seeing my next door neighbor get him an...
  32. As much as you may be tempted to clean it, don't. Nice Roman bronze.
  33. Thanks for taking a look and for loving some of these family personal items.
  34. Thank you scottvez for this and past info on these military items of my dads. I really appreciate it.
  35. Thank you StihlCollector Happy to share.
  36. Thank you Driewer for that additional info.
  37. Thank you very much. Now I have a clear picture of all pieces. You're great AR8Jason Thanks a bunch!
  38. I'm guessing that pic one is the "Ruptured Duck" insignia, pic two is the emblem of the Army Corps of Engineers, the patch on the top of pic three is the Army Amphibian Unit, but that's where I draw t...
  39. Very interesting. Thank you so much for clearing up all of that of which I was unsure about. There are some other pics I want to post of the detail of the patches, stripes etc that I would love for yo...
  40. Thank you very much for that additional info.
  41. Unfortunately they are already all gone. The man that wore this uniform died in 1986 at the age of 65. His job as an air traffic controller I think, being the reason. My step dad Val (age 83-too youn...
  42. Thank you Pop & Vesta, With the exception of being monogrammed, the pitcher on eBay is the exact same thing. Also it looks as if the eBay example was polished and I haven't touched mine. I've wanted t...
  43. I just checked out the links you gave me. Those pieces shown are incredible. It is exactly what I have. But I'm just wondering how one could tell the age of a piece, as I'm fairly certain of mine's ag...
  44. Thanks DD for the links. I will check them out when I have some more time. Kuna sounds African to me?? Maybe it's not. All I know is that these came from either Central or possibly South America? And ...
  45. Thank you for looking and thank you for the info and your comment. I'm sure there are very few survivors left being as how all that served, were born in the early 1920's and before. I had several rela...
  46. I'm aware that Sargent is the three chevrons but I was just wondering how you could tell whether it was an e-5 or e-6 or 7. But having studied that patch, and the ones on the uniform, I'm fairly certa...
  47. This is very interesting. I have my dads uniform posted here and I was certain that these Sargent patches were from another one of his uniforms or a coat/jacket of some sort. Could you please look at ...
  48. Sorry but I'm clueless on these. No help as of yet. If you find out anything, please let me know. I'll do likewise. Thanks for looking.
  49. Thank you but about the only thing I am certain of was that world war two was the only time he served and thinking even more closely, I doubt very seriously that he would have Sargent patches from any...
  50. Anytime. Glad I could help.
