  1. Thanks for looking surf and david. scott
  2. Thanks much trunkman! scott
  3. I am a recent fan. I really like Yost-- wish he had stayed with the Braves/ was managing them. I am a National League "small ball" fan and really am amazed to see an AL team play like a NL team! ...
  4. Another great one! scott
  5. Found this one on ebay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Kralik-Victorian-Cranberry-Opalescent-Art-Glass-Lily-Floriform-Vase-Bohemian-/181480689225?hash=item2a41178e49&nma=true&si=hqBD%252B1TSc3GaxITsihcX12...
  6. Thanks for looking vo and jewels! scott
  7. Pence has a good game-- hope it is NOT a good Series for him! SF had a well played and managed game last night. scott
  8. Nice find-- thanks for sharing! scott
  9. Thanks much inky and kyra! scott
  10. Thanks for looking racer. scott
  11. The "EP" mark usually indicates electro- plate meaning it is not sterling. It was common to engrave the owner's initials on the handle. scott
  12. It is fraternal. scott
  13. Thanks much moonstone, sklo and vetraio! scott
  14. What always impressed me about Stan the Man and many of the earlier era ball players was that power could go along with contact hitting. In his 22 year career, Musial NEVER struck out 50 times in a...
  15. My Dad's favorite, so I can quote a lot of his stats as well. My Dad grew up in ST Louis and watched him play many games every years scott
  16. It is a beauty! scott
  17. Based on the graphics and immense amount of Patriotic materials made to show War support, I would think that these are WW2 era. scott
  18. GREAT work on nailing down the manufacturer, chris! scott
  19. Great collector information! scott
  20. 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
  21. The top is BURL wood veneer. scott
  22. Beautiful, moonstone! scott
  23. 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 ...
  24. Good explanation welzebub. One of the "pot stirrers" returns with the usual comments! scott
  25. Yep-- agree but it doesn't make it correct! scott
  26. The accepted standard for antique furniture is 100 years of age. scott
  27. Modern decorator pieces. scott
  28. 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
  29. BEAUTIFUL Welz-- I had to love it again! scott
  30. 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...
  31. 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...
  32. US Army. scott
  33. Forgot to mention the "oak leaf" signifies a second award of the MUC. scott
  34. 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...
  35. Equally exciting to lean back onto the protruding wood and metal pieces. Looks more decorative than functional. scott
  36. 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...
  37. Beautiful and GREAT story! scott
  38. Beautiful vase! scott
  39. BEAUTIFUL Welz! The last photo is fantastic. scott
  40. Those are decorative engraving marks-- nothing to do with the maker. Look on the top of the barrel near where the hammer strikes. scott
  41. 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
  42. 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...
  43. 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...
  44. 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...
  45. 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
  46. 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
  47. Good buy. It won't come close to the roadshow price, but it is worth much more than what you paid. scott
  48. Silver plate doesn't command high prices. I would put yours in the $35- $50 range. scott
  49. 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 ...
  50. 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...
