I just took photo of my alligator clip! I have had it all these years, I stopped using pot in the middle 80's. 2nd photo is me 18 yrs. old back from Vietnam 3rd photo is me 21 yrs. old! What a change! Last photo is sensimilla marijuana which means without seeds. Life takes a person in lots of different directions, I traveled a lot and had a lot of fun and adventure.The music then was the greatest!!! Now I enjoy collecting items and looking for new treasures! Good hunting to all us Collectors!

    Great story with your clip . I first heard of pot during Nam and times were changing in 70's . I treated many guys that got hooked on heroin while in Nam . It was my awakening to drugs and I have said before I think drugs really started being a problem when the guys started coming home . But I also understand why so many took them while there . Glad you quit and made it home safe . Love the photo of you it is so 70's :-)))))

    well i have analyzed a lot of mary jane with my time with the toxicology crime lab in nebraska -- now this is a true alligator clip -- even looks like an alligator -- amazing i worked all those years with the crime lab and have no clue the affects of mary jane -- never tried it -- courts can be scarey -- never wanted to fail the lie detector test it i had ever tried it -- so never did -- really don't think i missed out at all -- too stinky -- and meth -- oh i can smell that chemical a block away -- total cat piss is the smell -- don what reading the book "saving fish from drowning" by amy tan -- have you read it -- i keep thinking of you as i read it -- will pass on the book to you if you have not read it yet or if you want to check it out at your local library -- hugs kid

    I know a lady who has one much like that one. I want one!
    Even though I don't do jays, I'd like to have one of those, just in case. ;)
    Have you even the slightest idea where one might procure such an alligator clip?

    lol!!! lmao!!!!!! your very welcome toracat!!
  9. towercam, 4 years ago
    Well YEAH, I knew you weren't going to find one. I spent several hours today trying that thing.

    I thought maybe you were ready to sell yours, or you know a pal who has one to sell.
    I've looked around for said alligator clip pretty darn thoroughly. I may have to cast my own.
    Please examine, carefully, your alligator clip for make and model.
    I think there is some script/text on it. What does it say?

    Will add new photo of belly!! 10 minutes!
  11. toracat toracat, 4 years ago
    Do not know that logo???? sorry
  12. towercam, 4 years ago
    I am thanking for the photo of the alligator's belly. Unfortunately, the photo does not reveal the entire symbol. I'll sure look around for what I see of the symbol.
    Again, thanks.

    Hi there, I used to have the same clip but the tail broke off. A longtime friend had one also that broke. I would like to surprise her with another for her upcoming birthday. Would you possibly like to sell yours to me for like $10 + shipping. If so, let me know. That would be great. Thanks.
