  1. Based on the graphics and immense amount of Patriotic materials made to show War support, I would think that these are WW2 era. scott
  2. GREAT work on nailing down the manufacturer, chris! scott
  3. Great collector information! scott
  4. Just to clarify the burl is a round growth on the tree that yields this type of wood/ veneer. It is found on a variety of trees-- maple, oak, redwood, etc.... scott
  5. The top is BURL wood veneer. scott
  6. Beautiful, moonstone! scott
  7. Rather than regularly playing the broken record, perhaps charcoal could post his research and documentation on his OWN Collectors Weekly postings OR link to HIS glass website, so others could look at ...
  8. Good explanation welzebub. One of the "pot stirrers" returns with the usual comments! scott
  9. Yep-- agree but it doesn't make it correct! scott
  10. The accepted standard for antique furniture is 100 years of age. scott
  11. Modern decorator pieces. scott
  12. Nice. I wouldn't call it antique-- 2nd quarter 20th century. You can buy replacement veneer-- the hard part/ work is color matching the older pieces. scott
  13. BEAUTIFUL Welz-- I had to love it again! scott
  14. Agree it is a trapdoor converted to percussion: - cartouche with 1888, shows this was in fact a trapdoor stock - lock w/o date is a trapdoor lock The trapdoor serial number is no longer there...
  15. Big joke of an image with a big joke of a price: https://www.etsy.com/listing/196958873/lincoln-family-tintype?ref=sr_gallery_32&ga_search_query=tintype&ga_show_panel=true&ga_search_type=all&ga_vie...
  16. US Army. scott
  17. Forgot to mention the "oak leaf" signifies a second award of the MUC. scott
  18. Two modern era unit citations. Blue is the Presidential Unit Citation (PUC) and the red is the Meritorius Unit Citation (MUC). Both are awarded to units for COMBAT service, but are worn by curre...
  19. Equally exciting to lean back onto the protruding wood and metal pieces. Looks more decorative than functional. scott
  20. Yes, I have varied interests! Most of it comes from auction attendance years ago (mainly looking for militaria) and seeing things that interested me. I'd follow up with research to get an idea...
  21. Beautiful and GREAT story! scott
  22. Beautiful vase! scott
  23. BEAUTIFUL Welz! The last photo is fantastic. scott
  24. Those are decorative engraving marks-- nothing to do with the maker. Look on the top of the barrel near where the hammer strikes. scott
  25. How about adding the photo of the marks to this listing? Just click on edit, add photo and you can put up to 4 total photos on a listing. scott
  26. Percussion box lock pistols. Both appear to be original percussion and as such would date from about the 1830s- 50s. This style was made by a myriad of makers-- most that I see are European in o...
  27. Great looking sign. fifties is telling you, in a nice way, that this site is not for selling. Depending on when and where you purchased it, it could be worth much more than you paid. Deal...
  28. WRC was an auxiliary of the Grand Army of the Republic (GAR). Here is some information on that group: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/23233-grand-army-of-the-republic-gar-collect The le...
  29. This type usually bring less than $50, so I wouldn't think it would be cost effective to pay for any work on it. It will display fine as is. scott
  30. Glad to help out. The "son in service" design is found much more often in WW1 pieces. Also the overall ring design and thin band would point to WW1. scott
  31. Good buy. It won't come close to the roadshow price, but it is worth much more than what you paid. scott
  32. Silver plate doesn't command high prices. I would put yours in the $35- $50 range. scott
  33. Nice clock. I would also suspect that the top rectangular pieces (very light brown wood) originally had veneer pieces that more closely matched the rest of the clock's veneer. Pls correct me if ...
  34. Beautiful vase! scott
  35. Wear looks consistent with a game used ball. Signatures are unknown/ not similar to any baseball "stars". Nothing would lead me to believe it is a "fake". Folks fake autographed baseballs to fool...
  36. Sorry to confuse-- these field glass do look to be 19th century. The USN was short on optics during WW1, so the Navy solicited loans of ANY useable optics for the war effort. I have seen optics ...
  37. Not a US military button. scott
  38. Eastlake cane rocker-- dates from about 1870- 1890s. scott
  39. It looks to be 20th century. The construction will help to narrow the date. Some additional photos of the interior and drawer construction would be helpful. scott
  40. This style ring was very popular during the WW1 era. scott
  41. Many countries used French optics. While it could have been used during the Boer War, it is certainly not exclusive to that use or conflict. In fact, I have seen ones similar to this that have doc...
  42. How do you ID as Henderson Ames w/o seeing marks?? scott
  43. I can't see it. Sorry, I am fairly good at reading older writing, but your photos are really messing with my eyes-- must be the contrast. scott
  44. Nice! Should be marked on the blade near the hilt. scott
  45. Nice binos! What is the Boer War connection? scott
  46. If you can post some better pics-- I'd be happy to help decipher it. A larger picture showing the entire box top would be helpful. scott
  47. GREAT work-- it looks fantastic restored! scott
  48. It is a WW2 era pillow cover. They were very popular souvenir items for soldiers and purchased in various military exchanges (as fhrjr stated). I believe this one is for Lockbourne Army Airfield w...
  49. Yes-- I have seen similar 3D signs. It is a late 20th century decorator item. scott
  50. Agree modern decorator piece-- dare I say, of the type found at Hobby Lobby! No collector value. scott
