  1. I gotta love because today I ride an electric bike. Can't pass the eye test anymore so the bike and a backpack work for now. I love not only the bike but the detailed documentation of it's history. If...
  2. Packrat Keep in mind that the knowledge and advice you share here is equally as important as you posting new treasures. Many of us here have the greatest respect for you and the wisdom you share wit...
  3. Some people have all the luck, I would get a box full of "Postage Due". Good to see you posting again and thanks for sharing your find.
  4. They were called advertising thimbles. I might add that they always sell good on eBay. The wife and I used to buy and sell them, buy for $1 and get $15 in a 7 day auction. Yours is probably 1940's giv...
  5. Little wonder flour mill was in Ohio if you search on that you will find information.
  6. I have several like this made from different types material. Mine all came inside packaged food and coffee way long ago. There would have been multiple designs for a given company. They did that so yo...
  7. I have a newer very similar clamp packed away somewhere because I haven't used it in a good 30 years. Mine has brass inserts in the jaws. Mine held different diameters of pipe for threading, sweating ...
  8. It is a vending token (Italian) Gettone Jeton Vending BDM BUONO. Search with that term and you will find them in different types some only have the BDM on one side. From what I found the coins come in...
  9. Some of these I have seen others I haven't. I did note on one that there was speculation as to the use and also whether the two parts had been joined from different sources. I still see the carvin...
  10. Hahaha! Well said Tube, perhaps we have a Tabernacle Alter modified to accommodate modern technology. Either way, no matter the use it would be far more valuable one way than the other. I am more than...
  11. These are quite easy to research because Kellogg's made all kinds of replica pendants, money clips etc. Without seeing the back one never knows. You can buy a precious metal test kit on Amazon for abo...
  12. 2 cents accepted but no change. There is nothing to indicate it is or was Catholic all religions have them. I am all to familiar with kneeling rails from my younger years. There well may have been one...
  13. Interesting, how do you happen to know it was handmade? Or did you mean put together by hand?
  14. Other research terms that apply to this item might be Home Chapel or even home Tabernacle Altar also referred to as a temple or a shrine. Pretty much depends on what religion the owner was. I believe ...
  15. I will post this and then follow up. According to legend, in a time of famine a mother pelican would draw blood from her own chest and give the blood to her chicks. Thus the pelican symbol in Ch...
  16. I enlarged the picture of the back to 200% and I would say that someone at some point modified this to make the trap door. If the wood of the panel is the original piece it was put in backward. On enl...
  17. When you sat there to pray there would be a bible and probably a hymnal in the drawer. Also You will find those are not storks. If you research religious symbolism for pelicans you will find many imag...
  18. Brunswick - Give your son my best and my thanks. My son just requested a transfer back to Fort Campbell because he wants to retire there. Right now he teaches air assault to rangers. Many sleepless ni...
  19. I would say it is most probably around 1940's. During those years metals went toward the war effort. I have one like this that was my father in laws that is late 1930's. Most newer wooden levels are b...
  20. The fact that it says 'Made In Czechoslovakia' means it was imported after the tariff act which requires the words Made In. There are numerous sites that sell and buy replacements for both china and ...
  21. I am well old enough to remember this. All right now was one of my favorites because I came home from Vietnam all right earlier. It was kind of a welcome home song to me a couple years late.
  22. Sorry I got the impression from your post that you were still a bit unsure about this item. Everything about it is right to be a home tabernacle. Yes they were frequently wired to a small bulb inside....
  23. I will give you the benefit of what little memory I have left. I have seen a similar item but as fancy carved, many years ago in a Catholic church. I believe it held a large gold goblet that had some...
  24. Same wrench is listed in an up coming auction with wrenchernews. Probably Monash-Younker out of Chicago. They did plumbing and heating.
  25. From my research, I read that when singer began using drummers (door to door salesmen) they did sell unbranded machines. As I recall there were two reasons. First poor people couldn't afford a singer ...
  26. As a thought I wonder if you have a Vietnamese cafe or market in your town where you could show the photo's and ask? The gentleman that mows my lawn is Vietnamese as are other locals and the all are v...
  27. I agree with Phil and will add that in the 50's & 60's these were also used by schools for teachers desks. I also agree about the crest board on the chair, I never saw that before either.
  28. Try this site, I found it useful. Just answer the questions. It is free http://www.sandman-collectibles.com/id-singer-machines.htm#40
  29. Hi there. I just gave one away that had Egyptian scroll work and it wasn't fun researching it. I will post a link for you that I found handy. http://www.sandman-collectibles.com/id-singer-machines....
  30. I can relate to and appreciate this post. I have very similar pictures of my late wife at the same age right above my computer where I greet her several times a day. One day I will catch up with her b...
  31. Nice post. I only have police and fire badges but they are a fun collectible. My favorite is a badge worn fighting the fire when the Hindenburg crashed in Lakehurst, NJ. All badges have a history, I ...
  32. I don't collect knives anymore but have had a number of Solingen folding knives. If my memory is working, I believe the insignia on this knife was called, "running bull".
  33. I live close by also and Plant City is home to the annual strawberry fest, which just ended. Might be something in the history of the strawberry fest. It is a huge event and would certainly need cold ...
  34. There were many options you could add on, like a garage or a fence. Some had a hinged roof or front so you could open them and buy furniture to put inside. They weren't terribly sturdy and I have seen...
  35. That is a large Lincoln Commemorative Medallion. Should be made of bronze. If you research it as I stated you will find many of them online.
  36. From what I can see I believe this was a kit house. You would buy the kit and put the house together yourself. This one is probably fairly old. Long ago you could buy the kits out of magazines like po...
  37. I can probably date it but need to get drunk first so I can see it right side up.
  38. I can't recall his name but 60 years ago I saw him almost everyday. He was a comic character I seem to think in the little comic that came inside bubble gum. Bubble gum was two for a penny back then s...
  39. I would venture to agree with the story you tell behind this. I would say either in shop class or home made. My reason for my opinion is because it is to crude to be a commercial item. By that I mean ...
  40. If I had a guess I would say it was bought from a mail order catalog pre WWII. Not at all a budget or bargain basement item. Actually it was probably expensive when originally purchased. I have two of...
  41. I believe you will find it is brass, not copper and while the end photo is dark, I would say it is a tack hammer. Head of the tack fit in the hole on the end and you hit the other end to drive the tac...
  42. The under side markings in picture 3 are stenciled warehouse or distribution center marks. I would doubt she brought it with her, probably purchased when she settled in here.
  43. Pretty cool. I don't collect such things but somehow I ended up with a hundred or two Tetley tea ones. I just found them in the dusty archives.
  44. TRIVIA: Back in 1968 we used geese in Vietnam under bridges as alarms. The bridges kept getting blown up at night so we used geese under the bridges because they would go nuts if someone came near the...
  45. Try researching it as an antique smudge pot and I believe you will find what it is.
  46. I see what you are saying Blunderbuss2 but never happened to do that. We okum packing and did our pour quarter inch low and used a collar so over run wasn't really an issue. I didn't intend to say it ...
  47. Looking at picture 2 I see a mans face and a rather bushy hair almost afro style, under the image is a word that is kind of in a half circle. The last four letters of the word are either SNLO or SHLO,...
  48. whyatt is correct. I saved image 4 turned it into a negative and rotated it. I can fairly clearly read what looks like ANION followed by a W below that I can clearly read Solingen Germany.
  49. I have a pair of ear rings almost identical to this pin. Kind of neat.
  50. I'm not sure if there was a right or wrong use for these but years ago I have seen them in basket makers work shops.
