  1. Beautiful, moonstone! scott
  2. 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 ...
  3. Good explanation welzebub. One of the "pot stirrers" returns with the usual comments! scott
  4. Yep-- agree but it doesn't make it correct! scott
  5. The accepted standard for antique furniture is 100 years of age. scott
  6. Modern decorator pieces. scott
  7. 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
  8. BEAUTIFUL Welz-- I had to love it again! scott
  9. 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...
  10. 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...
  11. US Army. scott
  12. Forgot to mention the "oak leaf" signifies a second award of the MUC. scott
  13. 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...
  14. Equally exciting to lean back onto the protruding wood and metal pieces. Looks more decorative than functional. scott
  15. 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...
  16. Beautiful and GREAT story! scott
  17. Beautiful vase! scott
  18. BEAUTIFUL Welz! The last photo is fantastic. scott
  19. Those are decorative engraving marks-- nothing to do with the maker. Look on the top of the barrel near where the hammer strikes. scott
  20. 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
  21. 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...
  22. 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...
  23. 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...
  24. 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
  25. 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
  26. Good buy. It won't come close to the roadshow price, but it is worth much more than what you paid. scott
  27. Silver plate doesn't command high prices. I would put yours in the $35- $50 range. scott
  28. 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 ...
  29. Beautiful vase! scott
  30. 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...
  31. 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 ...
  32. Not a US military button. scott
  33. Eastlake cane rocker-- dates from about 1870- 1890s. scott
  34. 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
  35. This style ring was very popular during the WW1 era. scott
  36. 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...
  37. How do you ID as Henderson Ames w/o seeing marks?? scott
  38. 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
  39. Nice! Should be marked on the blade near the hilt. scott
  40. Nice binos! What is the Boer War connection? scott
  41. 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
  42. GREAT work-- it looks fantastic restored! scott
  43. 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...
  44. Yes-- I have seen similar 3D signs. It is a late 20th century decorator item. scott
  45. Agree modern decorator piece-- dare I say, of the type found at Hobby Lobby! No collector value. scott
  46. Neat looking chair-- the figural head is interesting (griffin/ dragon/ lion??). It appears that on the other side it has broken off. Photo looks like a studio shot-- a full picture may confirm. ...
  47. "Jap Happy" would identify the plane (B-17): http://www.pacificwrecks.com/aircraft/b-17/41-2520.html "wings with an eagle" sounds like a crew member wing. Some red flags: - Colors don't l...
  48. Need some additional photos-- show the bottom (include joint where the legs attach) and the back. scott
  49. Nice family item! I have never seen it referred to with that term-- is it regional/ common in your area? I typically see jew's, jaw or simply mouth harp. scott
  50. Nice pics of 1930s life! scott
  51. See more
