    This is one of my finds from this past weekend 9/8-9/18, it's a F.D.R. Franklin Delano Roosevelt Political Pinback Donkey, from 1944, Presidential Election. I added 1944 Lincoln Wheat Pennies in S, San Francisco, D, Denver, and no mint mark Philadelphia, also a 1920's Widmer's Wine Cellars Inc. Corkscrew from Naples, New York, the State that F.D.R. came from.
    Here's some information about all of these! :^D

    Information From "Wines & Vines"
    Widmer’s history The story of Widmer’s Wine Cellars dates back 127 years. In 1882, John Jacob Widmer, founder of the winery, and his wife Lisette came to the United States from Switzerland and settled in Naples, N.Y. Three years later, after planting their vineyard, they built their home with a cellar that became their wine production and storage area. They sold the first wines to residents of Naples in 1888. John Jacob and Lisette Widmer had three sons: Carl, Frank and William. As their business prospered, they were able to send their youngest, Will, to the Royal Wine School of Germany in Geisenheim. In 1924, the three brothers took over the business, and Will, as president, guided the winery through its years of growth. The winery remained stable during the Prohibition years by producing grape juice and non-alcoholic products, as well as sacramental and medicinal wines. The winery was incorporated in 1933. Varietal labeling was not common in the U.S. from the time of Prohibition repeal until World War II, and wine producers chose to use such names as chablis, sauterne and burgundy. After the start of the war in 1939, when supplies of wine from Europe were cut off, wine importer and writer Frank Schoonmaker knew that he had to sell American wines. He became the leading advocate of varietal labeling and encouraged Louis Martini and Wente Brothers in California and Will Widmer in Naples to use not only the names of grape varieties but also the places where the grapes were grown.

      Wow, I just had a History (favorite subject in school) Lesson on CW. Quite informative and very interesting. The wine story about how the brothers kept the winery going during prohibition is remarkable. Love that wine... my daughter & I love sparkling wine & OJ. Who doesn’t love a mimosa, or two? Tee Hee

      Bill, what a fun post!! Your pictures are great. I love the coins and the FDR pin and the corkscrew. Grape juice... I wonder if that was all they made :-)

      Eileen - History was my favorite too!! and Geography, which I guess is why I do a few trips (joking, I travel a lot but don't want to sound like a snob) ha ha ha - travel around - hate the plane trip, love it when I'm there and then happy to be back home. And then when I'm back I want to go again.
