  1. Other than it being Marked Sterling there isn't other hallmarks I see. I was just informed by an expert this badge is in the Seattle Police Museum they have 2 there r 2 more that a private collector h...
  2. Thanks Rip I just was contacted by a collector/expert and he hasn't seen it but he really really likes it. He told me the Value is Northwards of a Grand $$!! Wow I didnt expect that. I personally th...
  3. I found something similar at Policeguide.com looks to have made by Pacific Emblem Co. The one they have also dates from 1918-1932 made of sterling with enamel but the one here is different and more or...
  4. Thanks Scott is this for any group or specific to Army Marines Etc?
  5. What I find strange is that I can't find any thing on it to a company or city where it was made. From I was reading a lot the fakes have that and have slight mispellings and are 21j time to get a book...
  6. Gonna have to take it be checked out to see if it's a fake or the real thing. I appreciate the information shared.
  7. This is unfortunately a Fake and not the real deal. Unfortunately it's not worth big $$$ but it works and looks cool.
  8. I was told this is an Inuit Indian Billiken figure of a deity.
  9. Thanks Rip I think it's also called the 316-5 model of the leather hunter.
  10. Thanks for the input Rip I will update when I find more info
  11. I'm gonna have to get it tested it's hand carved etchings Into it and looking at the unevenness of the cup looks to have been hand forged. Getting a period is also the other challenge I'm having with ...
  12. Also I used the magnet on the cup and it isn't magnetic.
  13. The weight is what made me think lead.
  14. Thanks Mank!!
  15. I think it's Ivorex.
  16. Yes they are like a lot of company's that tried to follow up on Bossons success. These are cool pieces but Bossons managed to hire the highest quality artist from the others.
  17. Maybe u have Legend Co?
  18. Hey Manikin yes this piece is a wall figure so you may have it. They made these in small supply in the 1960s they are pretty hard to find. The lamp shades usually don't survive.
  19. Not offended at all I don't think a lot of things I post are pretty but they are very collectible and that's what matters to me. I'm sharing with others that don't get to see these lamps often at all...
  20. There is some similarity any idea on the period?
  21. Those look more to be display pieces than actual working decoys. The vintage working ones fetch more money but there are many modern carvers who's decoys are highly sought after. Are these at all mark...
  22. So I had an expert tell me they are both original and funny he did the light test you asked blunder. He believes the smaller one was a breast eagle and the larger one was one that would have been atta...
  23. I see that the date corresponds maybe to when the. 3rd army under Patton took back that city in 1944. I'm gonna see what I can find.
  24. It's an Old Squaw they presume.
  25. That theme song is still locked in my head my favorite shows growing up this knight rider and Airwolf
  26. Wow great shape that's amazing. I'm almost certain that at one time it did contain the good stuff let me check with my friend and I will confirm.
  27. Past quote from stereoview heaven describing these.
  28. There’s a 1850’s French series of remarkable stereoviews, in which human characteristics are represented in animal facial features. These views were made after a series of 70 lithographs, made in 1829...
  29. They were produced from 1850-70 so my guess is the 1860s has anyone seen one sell at auction or privately?
  30. Thanks Scott these I had an idea on as far as value do you have any idea on the others type that I have up?
  31. Thanks Vetraio I also came across that site and stereoview heaven.com in which they also have information but nothing on actual value other than to describe them as remarkable.
  32. Finally Scored!!!! This wonderful duck will be going up for auction at the end of July by the biggest decoy auction house in the USA... Guyette and Deeter. They believe it to be 1860s and somewhere fr...
  33. Ur totally correct I just was informed
  34. I was able to reach some lock experts and they said its a nice legit piece the history still not truly known. They believe this to made in either France or Germany and they think it was made to celebr...
  35. I might try to contact that guy and buy his set and see if the key works condition and a Key will equal more $$
  36. Walker my apoligies I found it my phone app didnt work to show site properly. Hard to tell if the size is the same but looks like it except his isnt in very good shape like this one.
  37. Definitely not the same lock but thanks for the effort. Still lookin to solve
  38. I hope u were not referring to the old jail house lock that is on the site. They are completely different locks both by design and subject matter.
  39. Didn't find what your talking about Windwalker still hoping for info
  40. Just got an expert opinion and looks like it's and Oldsquaw decoy likely from maine early 20th century. Maker still unknown.
  41. I'm guessing early 20th century decoy not sure who made it but I like the black T like pattern.
  42. Im gonna get better photos to show maybe that will help
  43. I had a feeling they may not be to old but I didnt know the facts and I thank you for that good thing I got them cheap. Much obliged.
  44. Well I did find out something this is a Bali Frog Ceromonial mask. The only problem is dating it they do make them over there still so its hard for me to tell. I still find it to be a really cool pie...
  45. Thanks I think the 3rd might be master sparkler I appreictae the help
  46. Maybe they were for racing and pilots really cool.
  47. Les lunettes I saw what appears to be the gp racing with these goggles on the ad
  48. The top of the center of the glasses next to his name its stamped France in photo 2.
  49. Thanks I didn't know
  50. I regret that I didnt buy them all. I purchased about 25 photos about half are planes the others are of pilots in posing for photos with aircraft or friends or landmarks.
