  1. I'd say they are reproductions,based on the sheen to the paper,the fact the product (bottle graphics) are cut off (this was never done-your products were the most important part!) and they look much s...
  2. Looks like Dad had a Midwest (or even Minnesota) connection. Quite a few plastic 70's signs and lightups in there. A few gems in the Hamm's signs. If any of them aren't working-shoot me an email. I ha...
  3. Its in nice shape. A pre prohibition tray-should be 200 in that shape.
  4. A cool sign.I'd think 100ish. The Kings of Rhode Island breweriana are Greg and Ed Theberge,I'm sure they'd know.
  5. Made in the 30's-a curved porcelain sign meant to hang on the corner,and could be viewed from multiple sides. oldbeer@gmail.com
  6. It has the IRTP (Internal revenue tax paid) statement on it,which dates it to pre 1951,so 1948 is probably right.This can has a book value of 55.00 in the USBC guide-nice find!
  7. Yes,Fremont Brewing existed from 189i until prohibition was enacted in 1917. They tried to reopen afterwards,but never did. The diamond shaped hole is called a prestolite key. Prestolite developed a p...
  8. Contact Steve at miner@bevcomm.net and he can set you up with a new logo piece.This is the large version of the Hamm's Starry Skies sign,which has PLASTIC bricks. The smaller version doesn't have the ...
  9. Wonder what ever happened to this guy???
  10. This type of sign is called a "charger" The derivation of the term "charger" actually pre-dates the invention of the lithography onto metal technology, and was coined in the 1840's to describe a new t...
  11. Great example! Thanks for sharing.
  12. Meyercord used a "sticker" type applique they applied to wood to make these types of signs. Meyercord existed over 100 years,I think they finally went out of business in the late 1990's.These applique...
  13. These were usually torn out pages from Will Anderson's BEER POSTERS book,or,reproduction posters that were burned/torn on the edges (sometimes) and laid flat on grape drying boards. (the wood base) Th...
  14. Its a Schaefer woodgrain can from the early to mid 50's.
  15. They have matching mugs too.Its part of a set...
  16. Whats the unsolved mystery here?
  17. This was a "stock sign" where brewers could personalize it using the same inner scene and just change the wording to make it their own.That way they wouldn't incur the art charges and setup a custom s...
  18. It is genuine. I've had both a complete sign like yours (with a greenish bulb and ballast that illuminates the glass) and currently have an etched glass insert waiting for a frame.Early to mid 50's vi...
  19. The blue bordered bear is harder to find than the red lettered version.If you need to know more,email/contact me through ibuyoldbeer.com.
  20. They were in business from 1895 til 1903 and were an importer and grocer.
  21. Reminds me of the Samual Adams Utopia containers...
  22. The label has an INTERNAL REVENUE TAX PAID statement on it,so it is pre 1951. It also features what they call a "steinie bottle" which were used in the late 30's into the 40's.I'd say this is in the 1...
  23. With the missing gold,150.00
  24. Two dozen small (12 oz. and not quart) glass bottle cases used for the transport and carrying of bottled beer.
  25. This clock was on the...right? side of a neon sign that had the word "Old Style" in upper and lower case letters (white neon) It was advertising Old Style beer brewed by G. Heileman Brewing headquarte...
  26. Its been cut down to fit into the frame,and was once a larger sign.Many times they did this to "back" a sign with metal or wood for a stiffener, to make it rigid. Henry Weinhard bought Portland’s olde...
  27. Great sign,Carl!
  28. They sell for between 40.00 and 300+ on ebay (you'd have to pack and ship,however-which I'd never risk doing if it were my sign) For a sold example,check auction 150808015660.There have been over a do...
  29. 1952 125-175
  30. Yep,we did!
  31. Hamms 700 to a G
  32. Yes there is. I'm just starting my website ibuyoldbooze.com
  33. Its what they called a "stock tray" where the buyer (store,brewer,tavern) could buy them cheaper, as they were already printed. They simply personalized the back side with their name. There were a sta...
  34. Was this a lighted sign or is it metal? Very cool.
  35. Yes,the complete set of 21 sells for about 20 bucks on ebay.The cans can be found for between .10 and a buck here in MN. Yours are crimped steel cans brewed by G. Heileman of LaCrosse WI.
  36. It is a holder for foam scrapers (there is one inside) The circular beer logo on the front was also used on ball type beer tappers.Your item is made of bakelite.You are correct.
  37. Right on.These were a generic type ring that could be purchased via mail order, or at the PX. The ones that have a bit more value are the class issued academy rings bought in a cadets senior year from...
  38. Rose Gorgeous sign.I'd say its probably made by Lumin-art Display Corp., Brooklyn, NY and Waterbury, CT, from the mid-to late 30s. Some beer brands had a ribbed glass front insert, but yours is rev...
  39. The Gluek's "griffin" logo was more mid 1950's and was used on their flat top cans.They used it up until they sold out to Heileman in 1964. A great pair of neons!
  40. David-thats the key,the parachute,as its so fragile.You should be able to get 500+ for it.Its really a cool sign.
  41. Way cool.When I'm talking on the phone to someone with a forgotten 70's collection,I always say "recycle the aluminum" Not in your case. This may be a Hamm's dog bone tab,but to have it stamped AB mak...
  42. Between 20 and 30 bucks,if that.It was popular to apply reproduction prints (Will Anderson's BEER POSTERS was a popular book to cut pages from,as it was filled with old looking prints that were new) t...
  43. Its a wood (?) framed prohibition era tin sign from Jacob Schmidt Brewing Co. that was located on W. 7th St. in St. Paul MN. I think the special label is an L-permit (if I remember right) which puts i...
  44. Railhead-I'd make that trade.
  45. There are a whole slew of breweries that made these knit sweaters. Thanks for sharing.
  46. Chalkware made in the mid to late 50's from the Columbia Brg. Co in Tacoma.Sells in the 60-125 range depending on condition (chips,smoke damage,paint,etc)
  47. I had to do a double take-the label is in terrific shape.With the cork backed cap,I'd say its mid to late teens.I'd pay in the 75-100 range for this,Dave.Very cool bottle...
  48. It was made by Lakeside Plastics in Minneapolis from 1968-73 Closer to 73 as it features real life bear,Sasha,and Earl Hammond,her keeper-the Grizzly Adams type guy who replaced the cartoon bear in th...
