There are many collectors who post on YouTube. If you're curious, you can search the song title and you might get lucky and hear the record you have. Merry Christmas.
What a find! Do you have the appropriate machines to play them? If the Columbia cylinder matches the box, it's a 2 minute wax, and can't be played on a 4 minute machine. Indestructible made 2 and 4 mi...
They have a surface of an early plastic with a Core of wood flour and China clay. The ones pictured are from after 1921. The star on the label was used to inform the dealers that the record wasn't exp...
It looks like clay to me.
Your missing the wire card holder on the right side, it should look the same as on the left. They are fun, aren't they?
It's all there. I use it occasionally.
Cool. Do you have any cards for it?
Looks like a model 200. Early 20s. It has been refinished. They are interesting machines, capable of playing vertically and laterally recorded records with the appropriate stylus.
Neat machine. There are a few things to keep in mind, unless it's been rebuilt, you'll likely need to rebuild the sound box. You can probably get away with just replacing the diaphragm and gaskets. T...
The company also made records and phonographs.
I thank you.
That's one groovy photograph.
It looks like someone was playing around with machining equipment. Post mint damage. Not an error.
I agree, buggy step.
The use of the P mint mark on quarters started in 1980. A die crack would make sense.
It looks like someone removed the reeding, exposing the cross section.
I often choose words poorly.
Sorry about that. It's still an interesting decorative piece. I don't think $20 for it is crazy money.
This says it's a reproduction. http://www.railroadiana.org/hw/pgSpittoons.php
That's a great price. Those things are really cool. Every time I look at mine I get a surprise. The illusion of depth still blows my mind.
What led you to that conclusion?
Looks 1930s or 40s. Is there a manufacturer's ID plate, tags, or other marks?
It looks like it was machined on a lathe. The reverse looks to show tool marks. And the raised point would make sense as the area supported by a tail stock.
It's a good song.
I don't claim to be an expert, but I've been collecting and learning about coins for 25 years.
I'd say damage. I don't believe there's any way that could have happened at the mint.
Thanks. I'll check it out.
You should limit exposure to direct sunlight, as it will fade the painting.
It looks like a clay pipe with a reed stem. They were made in factories all over the U.S. An image search for (brown glazed clay pipe with reed stem) will show similar pipes.
French Ecuadorial Africa dissolved in 58. Federation of Rhodesia was established in 53
Thanks. What model is yours?
I agree with the above comment. A Google search is all you need. Most of what I see can be had for under $1. They would make a nice gift if you know anyone that wants to start a stamp collection. Of c...
That is a very attractive frame.
It looks like a Judean lepton. What dose the other side look like?
It was just some educated guesswork, and the miracle that is the Internet.
I found this. https://www.gardnermuseum.org/experience/collection/13603
You are most welcome. I would love to see the results.
Maybe the base to glass pull knobs?
I found this. https://youtu.be/0HkvxnO22s4
I think the prosses is a little more involved. You have to remove the excess ink. They were used in printing. I believe this may help. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Photogravure
It looks similar to some shaving mugs, though most aren't as tall.
The one on the bottom left in the top right picture is very interesting.
Oil lamp is my guess. Are there any marketings?
20 Peso coin from Mexico. It's a nice off-center example.
