  1. Yes, my fears and my trust is as yours. We are thinning down greatly week by week and keep enough to decorate. Carry on young man
  2. fortapache, I don't know what type of steel it is, but a file will not bite into the metal unless it is in a vise and you work it like a smithy. The tip had a different profile as that of a samurai bu...
  3. Maybe it is for loping off foreskin....note the shape of the handle. Just kidding
  4. I think I enjoy finding all this stuff for you guys who collect. I keep it a while and change my theme. Of course , I have some things I have had for decades which any collector would love to have. My...
  5. SpiritBear, You better start building a barn! As much and as quick as you dig stuff out you will need room for the future. I wish I had all that I found as a young man. Ignorance and lack of space is ...
  6. How do you differentiate between makers when you spy this glass? I can not tell who is who unless there is a mark.
  7. The USS ones are the older ones. People collect certain cities and I have seen them go for $99.00.
  8. OOOOOoooooo insulators
  9. Trey, I'm getting there. I usually get a small collection of signs and someone will want to buy them or give me a truck or motorcycle for them and they get gone each time I try to collect.But I always...
  10. Oh yea, made by Ingram Richardson PA
  11. Looks like it went with tire rack display. I like it because it is not large as the others. Check out the one I recently found. It is a great little sign to have in your collection.
  12. It is certainly better than a short handled shovel. Any of you guys ever have a boss put you to work with a short handled shovel? Means he didn't like you.
  13. blunderbuss2, these tires were produced from the early teens to the twenties so they must have worked. As cars got heavier and faster I'm sure the design failed. Or else they would still be around. Th...
  14. Four strings which were mainly used in Jazz/Blues. I would venture 1920's. It is a keeper if it be a GIBSON.
  15. If you should run across a bottom 4 hole plate for a mid to late 1920's ESSCO T-235 I would pay handsomely. You could be the only guy on the block with 3 testicles. Because I would give my left testi ...
  16. I got one just like it for $1200. 15' 7" x 28' . I see the prices rising on WESTERN AUTO and west coast prices are higher because the store started out west in Arizona I believe. Even those born in th...
  17. It's a keeper! California pottery is still gaining a growing fan base as people learn that few of these potteries are still around. American based potters took over part of the supply line for pottery...
  18. I was researching an 3" Anheuser Busch Syrup lid for a jar which I found recently when I ran across this post. Not much on this item to be found.
  19. Good shape, double sided and in the frame is $3200. realistic price. I would venture yours would get a thousand and some change. Best to clean them with WD40 and a green scrub pad. Wipe all excess off...
  20. Any markings on the bottom? i have a Japanese piece which looks like it is made using the same technique. Tiffany also turned out some glass like this.
  21. Ha. I'm relieved! I thought maybe he used blood in his paint or I would get bloody by removing the picture from frame. Thanks for clarifying.
  22. Blood??
  23. Blood ?? In the paint?
  24. Thanks ravage60, any ideas? I don't think it will fall into the Cupola category.
  25. I'm leaning towards a textile machine hook for catching and pulling a thread.
  26. Trey, did you ever get the large COKE sign and when are you going to share it with all your fans???
  27. I wanted to edit this and put in a closer up of the disgruntled mule with the uneven pack. ha
  28. The SINCLAIR sign above is real. It is a card board wall poster for a station. 8 foot by 4 foot. I just wanted it to draw attention to my message.
  29. A mold of some sort???? Plastics, ceramics or cookies or maybe this is what the Texans use to put that twinkle in their eyes.
  30. Yep Nicefice, spread the word. It irks me that it has become even more difficult to spot the fakes from far away and now my own countymen will deceive me to unload their loss at a profit and knowingly...
  31. I believe the 'Y" sign is a slow sign for coming into the YARD of the RR. I have a cast CITY LIMITS RR sign i picked up some years ago to dig out and post one day. Buyers beware of signs coming out...
  32. A lot of reproductions coming out of INDIA and being resold or unloaded stateside. SUNRAY is 26 1\2' side to side and 27' point to point.And not the 24' x 24' being sold one after another. I heard of ...
  33. Rattletrap a bunch of reproduction signs from India are hitting the market in the states. Beware when out buying. The size will tell you the difference as the reproductions are really good. For instan...
  34. I had some like it as a young feller. Do they have a stem spoon attached to top when pulled out? Ivory ? Mine were worth $1500. -$3000. according to Antique Roadshow. Some were painted and others ha...
  35. ....and when are you going to post us some photos of the bottles? It is quite easy.
  36. C-CFan, I have some pre 1910 straight side Coca-Cola script bottles that are Lynchburg VA. and some other town in Va. In good shape the Huntsville bottles bring $175.-$225. if color is right. I keep...
  37. C-CFan, hold on to any of them and use them to trade for what you want. Money could not buy some of my bottles,BUT if you got the right Mississippi bottle, I just might have what yer lookin fer.
  38. C-CFan, research, research, research the information you do have. "ROOT" is more desirable. Where they are made and when is important. Condition matters greatly; chips, cracks , case ware... Learn di...
  39. By the way, my cover photo with that 1927 chevy truck came from the same barn. First time that truck has seen daylight in fifty one years the old fella said.
  40. Blah, blah blah??? I still have found no S over B in a wreath mark..
  41. That was very informative Sir CanyonRoad and I thought it also to be more western. It was a major crossroads and tourists leave the funniest stuff. I was going to take it with me the next trip through...
  42. I like Anna's style. Ha the lizard...what did your buddy look like before he started smoking?
  43. I have never seen paper label 7up. The most unusual 7up for me was an amber squat bottle 7up I found last year. Your paper label is a great find and now I know to watch for them.
  44. @Caperkid, never learned for sure. Guy seemed more excited about the painting that the brass. He is suppose to be noted artist of that time. Guy told me it was on the Great Lakes, not the ocean.
  45. MFTreasure, Nothing 100% confirmed of her yet. The photo archives I have access to are not the right profile or age era. I believe her to be slightly embellished by the artist. What father of the era ...
  46. Say what?!
  47. Yep, that is a clear one on the right and a colored on far left. I have a couple of mixed RR&Telegraph insulators from the northeast. 1890s -1903 I figure to do a godzilla creation with the leftove 8...
  48. Yep, got a bucket of Brookfields. What are the ones with just an embossed star on the rim?
  49. Ooooh, the 1896, the green dome New York RR and those clear flaired tops caught my eye also. I had a guy in Bartlesville Oklahoma who sold me colored ones at 50¢ and clear ones for 25¢ I mainly get m...
  50. SpiritBear, 4:30AM 3.2 Payne Co. Just a slight bottle shaker.
