  1. 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...
  2. The company also made records and phonographs.
  3. I thank you.
  4. That's one groovy photograph.
  5. It looks like someone was playing around with machining equipment. Post mint damage. Not an error.
  6. I agree, buggy step.
  7. The use of the P mint mark on quarters started in 1980. A die crack would make sense.
  8. It looks like someone removed the reeding, exposing the cross section.
  9. Beautiful!
  10. I often choose words poorly.
  11. Sorry about that. It's still an interesting decorative piece. I don't think $20 for it is crazy money.
  12. This says it's a reproduction. http://www.railroadiana.org/hw/pgSpittoons.php
  13. Thanks.
  14. 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.
  15. Thanks.
  16. Thanks.
  17. What led you to that conclusion?
  18. Looks 1930s or 40s. Is there a manufacturer's ID plate, tags, or other marks?
  19. 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.
  20. It's a good song.
  21. I don't claim to be an expert, but I've been collecting and learning about coins for 25 years.
  22. I'd say damage. I don't believe there's any way that could have happened at the mint.
  23. Thanks. I'll check it out.
  24. You should limit exposure to direct sunlight, as it will fade the painting.
  25. Good find.
  26. 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.
  27. French Ecuadorial Africa dissolved in 58. Federation of Rhodesia was established in 53
  28. Thanks. What model is yours?
  29. 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...
  30. That is a very attractive frame.
  31. It looks like a Judean lepton. What dose the other side look like?
  32. It was just some educated guesswork, and the miracle that is the Internet.
  33. I found this. https://www.gardnermuseum.org/experience/collection/13603
  34. You are most welcome. I would love to see the results.
  35. Maybe the base to glass pull knobs?
  36. I found this. https://youtu.be/0HkvxnO22s4
  37. 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
  38. It looks similar to some shaving mugs, though most aren't as tall.
  39. The one on the bottom left in the top right picture is very interesting.
  40. Oil lamp is my guess. Are there any marketings?
  41. 20 Peso coin from Mexico. It's a nice off-center example.
  42. Definitely post 1929, that's when RCA bought out the Victor Talking Machine Company.
  43. It's a good song. How does it sound?
  44. Nice mid/late 20s? camera box phono.
  45. It's some type of water pipe for smoking tobacco.
  46. They do. Thanks.
  47. You're absolutely correct. Thank you.
  48. Thank you very much. I'll follow up on your suggestion. Value is of no interest to me. I just like old stuff.
  49. jscott0363; thanks.
  50. Yougotahavestuff; cute.
