It took a while but I did find the answer. You indicated that your example has attractive green felt on its underside. That was an improvement added to all new Improved Hummer Hole Punches in 1934.
Wilson Jones bought out the Delmar interest in the Improved Hummer line in the mid to late 1920's. Your Improved Hummer still has the older paper table which would place its manufacture to late 1920's...
Ahhhh memories. We has one next to our front door.
I agree with TubeAmp. Most likely a military service pin awarded by a veteran organization or community (city, county, or state)
1951 Oldsmobile Super 88 sedan.
If that my fathers bike, I would buy new tires and tubes. Oil all the necessary parts and I would ride that thing, Just so I could live a piece of his life experience. Rust?, what rust, I don't see an...
I don't think you have reason to be confused. In most cases you can not apply today's standards to yesterdays products. When this set was manufactured in Solingen Germany the town had a population of ...
I believe what you have is a carving set by Anton Wingen Jr. out of Solingen Germany. Rostdrei indicates that these items are stainless steel. You set is particularly well maintained and in beautif...
Probable match for you: Wilbur Morrill Cunningham (February 4, 1886 – January 14, 1974) was an American football player and coach, attorney, historian and author. Cunningham was born in 1886 in Be...
Well, to start with, that is a very nice find. Now, I found old ads dating from 1911 to 1915 where SEALPACKERCHIEF marketed handkerchiefs. and this display would probably house dozens of them at your ...
Beautiful display Michael. I love it.
That is the first Chain Saw collection I have ever seen. Why would anyone collect chain saws asked the man who collects hole punches. lol
Looks like a great find and from my home town .
When you take into consideration that the M1 Helmet with liner, (and this is the liner) was used throughout WWII, Korean War, Vietnam War and still used for several more years after that, then it is e...
That is an American helmet liner. Common in the 1960's and 1970's.
I've looked at several photos of Paul Galvin and must say, without a doubt, unknown. Because of the age difference in the photos, and that your photo is a side view and the internet photos are all fac...
This isn't rare - It's mega rare. A top shelf machine for sure. beautiful
More of these sold than any other make or model motor cycle. They did run forever. Once saw one of these thrown from a tall building. Of course the wheels were destroyed. but the motor still cranked up.
Funny ! I like Donald and his beautiful family. But, this button - this button is funny stuff.
I agree with Kerry10456. Lone wolf who was just trying to live the biker life. nice piece.
I love it ! I don't collect them, but, I could very easily. Very Nice example.
That is a museum for sure, how much are the adult tickets?
I have always loved old bicycles, never knew why I didn't buy any. Great piece of history.
That vintage staple gun does appear to be the Bostitch T5. I would recommend Ebay - they always have stuff for the old machines. I'm not sure if hardware stores still carry the staples for this machi...
A most beautiful example, worthy of your desk.
My folks has the set in the early 50's. I've often wondered where it was made. Never discovered that.
I know what you mean, Not only did he own it, but he used it, touched it. His memory lives on. Very nice.
That little jewel has some real history. Originally manufactured by Samuel C. Tatum from around 1912 to 1922. Tatum then sold all Hole Punch products to a company called Delmar. Delmar sold out to Wil...
The Aceliner is a very nice fastener. I collect antique and vintage fasteners, yet, you will still find a few of these on display in my collection.
I wood have thought it would be late 20's to early 30's.
Try "Noiseless". The Noiseless didn't do well on the market for some reason.
I use to be very active typewriter collector and would have to add that Royal started selling their portables in multiple colors around 1932 - 1935.
I love the fact that you restored it to include a new paint job. Beautiful job. congrats.
A Little history for you: The owners of the Caligraph Co. challenged the Folks at Remington to a contest. Both companies had extremely fast typist, as there were contest all over the country to determ...
What you have is a circa 1915 IDL Automatic Eyelet Punch No.2 It was patented around 1915 and it has a primary purpose of fastening documents together in a more secure manner than staples. http://mys...
