      I see some letter openers, button hooks and a couple of match box covers.

      I am a trench art collector-- none from my family unfortunately! Check my items as I have about one hundred trench art posting on Collectors Weekly.

      1 item looks like a coke spoon. LOL The top piece in 1st pic appears to be made using a spike bayonet.

      The cylinder shaped thing is a lighter do these things have value not really interested In selling just curious
    4. scottvez scottvez, 7 years ago
      Yes, they all have value.

      Nothing in your grouping has a great deal of value-- most less than $25/ each. One of the matchbox covers and the top letter opener MAY be a little higher.

      Personalized items and unusual items usually command the higher prices.

      If you need more specifics on prices, try an ebay search under SOLD items to see what similar items have brought.

      Scott is the go-to guy on trench art, but I would guess that the match box may go higher. It appears to have the WWI cap badge of the 27th Battalion (City of Winnipeg), CEF attached to it. If it were the unaltered badge alone I'd expect to pay $40-$50 for it on eBay. When brazed to a cigarette box like that, I don't know, but I think it would fetch a bit more $.

      Chris, I still don't see the badge for the glare. Pic should have been taken in shade with no flash.
    7. Chrisnp Chrisnp, 7 years ago
      Blunder, I only recognized it because I have several items from this battalion.

      Oh Chris, you're a tricky one! Have to watch you closer in the future. LOL. Sorry to have to report that I still have a few days to wait before I get some tail from the painters & guess CW will have to suffer my presence till then. Sorry!
    9. Chrisnp Chrisnp, 7 years ago
      well, I've always found that getting some tail is worth the wait, although not so far from painters.
    10. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 7 years ago
      Chris, I'm getting tired of waiting! Plane owner on my r'ass everyday & all he has to do is look out the window to see that it's raining. I want some tail as much as he does! I'm getting bored or I wouldn't be talking to you on CW, - CyberAsylum! Getting tired of waiting on some tail & may have to take things into my own hands! Yeah, I kicked Jacky out.
