  1. No problem-- I collect sweetheart jewelry (among many other items). It is a great item to collect as there is a seemingly endless supply of variety. scott
  2. Thanks much ivonne. scott
  3. Here is one on ebay-- it has the "son in service" top, but the bottom looks the same: scott
  4. Looks to be a WW2 era US Navy sweetheart jewelry pin. They were sold in stateside military post exchanges and also by local jewelry dealers. Usually service members would purchase it for a loved ...
  5. Thanks for looking and commenting antiquerose! scott
  6. Thanks for looking hoipolloi! scott
  7. I have not seen this particular design in a WW2 pin. The pin does have a slight resemblance to the AAC roundel. A photo of the back may help in determining the era of the pin. scott
  8. THANK YOU for SHARING all of this great welz! scott
  9. I am amazed at your regular postings of these unusual decors and shapes. How many pieces have you assembled? scott
  10. Interesting link added in post #8. Clearly, with the most cursory examination, the decor on the vase and the decor on the line art are substantially different. Similar, sure, but SIMILAR DOESN"T...
  11. Looks like you are ready to open the Welz Museum! scott
  12. Beautiful-- nice to have a documented welz decor! scott
  13. Agree with tom-- probably VN era. scott
  14. Suggest you ask the Lieutenant for the history of his hat. Unless he did something of particular note, I don't see a lot of value. scott
  15. Image looks to be a late 1870s- 90s image (probably a cabinet card or CDV). Exposure times of a second or less were typical by the 1870s. Many photographers advertised the "instantaneous process" in...
  16. jscott-- interesting comments. What about the image would make you think it could be a PM photo? scott
  17. It is an interesting letter for sure! scott
  18. Most likely blanks exported from Germany to the UK where they were decorated and retailed as a souvenir item at Margate. scott
  19. It is a reprint-- the staples wouldn't be found in an original. Also paper and color looks way off. Still worth the $2. scott
  20. Kralik would be my first thought. I wouldn't try any patching-- recommend you leave it alone. scott
  21. I don't know stwillia-- maybe someone else will chime in! scott
  22. I think freiheit is on track with his dating. Scene looks like Margate UK-- so the McKinley Tariff Act (US) doesn't come into play. scott
  23. I don't see anything in the child to suggest a PM. The pose would be highly unusual for a PM with a lifelike pose and the arm around the Mom. The eye dots are just an artist/ retouchers work and...
  24. NOPE. Eyes open and alert-- don't see anything to suggest a PM. Biggest indicator is the woman is standing-- I have never seen a standing PM. The posing stand being used for PM photography is...
  25. Do you have any invoice number information on the two accepted markers of glass (Loetz/ Kralik)? It would be interesting to see the amount of glass that they exported to the US to get an idea on vo...
  26. Pretty overwhelming evidence to support your thoughts, welz! scott
  27. Nice letter from a somewhat obscure/ forgotten US President. Please share more of your collection! scott
  28. It looks like a highly embellished stylized military Observer wing. The "EC" letters don't fit for any military affiliation I am familiar with-- maybe a sweetheart piece or possible something outsi...
  29. Very nice example-- the sunflower is unusual to find. Despite the damage it displays very well! scott
  30. It is wear-- rub/ ding from other coins. Wear does not add to coin values as a general rule. scott
  31. Expensive "looks like" image of "Doc Holliday" and the "Earps": What a...
  32. Never too many posted-- keep them coming, if you have any more! scott
  33. Didn't realize there were TWO of these posted on here! Love it. scott
  34. Agree with zowie-- the red jack in the pulpit really stands out. scott
  35. A photo of the back may help to better date it. What is it painted on? scott
  36. Nice colors and textures. I wouldn't call it antique-- probably produced in the mid 20th century. I'd also call it a bedspread. A search of the underside along the edges and in the corners m...
  37. Thanks for looking charm! scott
  38. Thanks for looking freiheit. scott
  39. Great Welz-- and one labeled! scott
  40. Great article-- and interesting thoughts/ ideas on the marking. Your analysis and common sense approach certainly would lead most open minded collectors to question the validity of that long held b...
  41. Amazing piece! scott
  42. Thanks for looking welz-- does it leave you longing for the Pacific NW? scott
  43. Thanks welz. I need to get a nice wood base for it. scott
  44. Great selection of antique images! scott
  45. Wow-- not a type that I have seen before. The pair really dazzles! scott
  46. Thanks for looking clockerman. scott
  47. How has it worked with the bbq? Nice sword-- love those poor titles on ebay! scott
  48. I see the 17 PR markings now. Also the lack of an anchor should have clued me in! Thanks chris. scott
  49. Looks like a State Militia unit. Certainly post Civil War, but hard to tell how long after. Most of the guys look to be way too old to be cadets. There MAY be some Civil War vets in the group, bu...
  50. It is beautiful! scott
