    Who remembers Green Stamps? Rectangle 6 inch ashtray with "SH Green Stamps" in green letters.

      After viewing your ashtray collection, I'm prompted to post one myself. I will leave you a link to same after posting. Welcome to the CW Forum, looking forward to many more posting from you.

      @Kerry10456, Thank you very much, it has been a lot of work taking photo's and categorizing them all, but the compliments make it all worth it. Trust me I will be posting more. Do you collect ashtrays? I've been trying to no avail to find other collectors, they all seem to be hiding!!!

      Any trench art ashtrays in the collection? I collect trench art and have several dozen trench art ashtrays posted on CW. Here is an example that may be of interest:

      I also have a few military mess hall ashtrays from the 1950s.

      @scottvez, I may have a few pieces, most of the one's that I find and want to buy are way over priced. I really like the one's you have posted, very cool. Would love to see more. I'll see if I can find some of ours.

      Like Scott, I have several ashtrays, but they are as "Disney" collectibles, and his are "Trench art". Sorta a cross collectible. I really enjoyed seeing yours and understand the managing of collection, very tasking indeed . Well here's one of mine:

      Prices have soared in recent years for trench art, but bargains are out there for those willing to search and WAIT.

      Here is a grouping of P-38 airplane ashtrays. The P-38 is the most commonly encountered aircraft in WW2 trench art:

      Here is something a little more unusual:

      I probably have over 100 ash trays in my trench art collection.

      Here is one more link on a "mess hall" ash tray from the 1950s that also may be of interest:
