  1. There is some similarity any idea on the period?
  2. 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...
  3. 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...
  4. 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.
  5. It's an Old Squaw they presume.
  6. That theme song is still locked in my head my favorite shows growing up this knight rider and Airwolf
  7. 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.
  8. Past quote from stereoview heaven describing these.
  9. 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...
  10. They were produced from 1850-70 so my guess is the 1860s has anyone seen one sell at auction or privately?
  11. 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?
  12. 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.
  13. 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...
  14. Ur totally correct I just was informed
  15. 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...
  16. I might try to contact that guy and buy his set and see if the key works condition and a Key will equal more $$
  17. 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.
  18. Definitely not the same lock but thanks for the effort. Still lookin to solve
  19. 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.
  20. Didn't find what your talking about Windwalker still hoping for info
  21. Just got an expert opinion and looks like it's and Oldsquaw decoy likely from maine early 20th century. Maker still unknown.
  22. I'm guessing early 20th century decoy not sure who made it but I like the black T like pattern.
  23. Im gonna get better photos to show maybe that will help
  24. 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.
  25. 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...
  26. Thanks I think the 3rd might be master sparkler I appreictae the help
  27. Maybe they were for racing and pilots really cool.
  28. Les lunettes I saw what appears to be the gp racing with these goggles on the ad
  29. The top of the center of the glasses next to his name its stamped France in photo 2.
  30. Thanks I didn't know
  31. 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.
  32. Guys I posted a few new photos related to this grouping if interested
  33. I finally got it. The P-51 is one of the original " Big Beautiful Doll" planes he flew. I was finally able to find a photo of him in this exact plane. Also in the photo you can see under the window Cp...
  34. Also backs are stamped " Passed for Personal Use only. Not for Publication. Station censor f-357.
  35. Turned out to be an Authentic Piece confirmed by native America Expert
  36. Thanks Apho for the information I sadly never drank it. I was put in touch with a gentlemen from San Fran that convinced me to part with it.
  37. Thanks Fhrjr2 I got figure what species from the color im guessing male.
  38. The place I went to had many other bottles must of which were sealed and vintage from the 1960s and 70s all for 10.00 per bottle.
  39. Yes they are very famous for music boxes from what o can find and highly sought after. These tables music boxes are also collectable but not to the degree of jewelry boxes.
  40. I was just told this are likely Reuge and they likely have swiss music movements
  41. I cant rule out the fact this might be a reproduction but the wood does show natural patina on the club I might have not taken photos that accurately show that the tags are just there to ID the piece ...
  42. Well I did the magnet and it sticks to the blade and tacks. The tacks on this are not made of brass I can see that made of something else. The blade looks maybe to be iron forged.
  43. Thanks guys I found one similiar that looks more beat under Walter black Stevenson from the 1920's but looks different
  44. Thanks for the info but search engine turned up nothing on this copy.
  45. Thanks Scott they do have numbers the Garrison Hat dsa-1-4330-64-c. 8405-286-5005
  46. Thanks for the background Chris makes for an interesting piece of history. Im hoping someone out there may have seen this medal before or similar and let me know if they are rare or what the medal may...
  47. Thanks Kerry he didnt know anything about the medal either but said it was a cool piece. I imagine its pretty rare but its a localized piece not a national piece either way early medals are tough to c...
  48. Gotta love supply vs demand its worth 200.00 ..enjoy theeee whiskey
  49. Thanks ..but I think TA is confused about whiskey. First this older rare eagle is much more quality bourbon than what's being produced today and taste completely different. Also Whiskey Bourbon that a...
  50. Maybe ...but I would have to Decide Neat or very few Rocks
