  1. I noticed the lack of brass corner reinforcements as well. Speaking of coning apart, the one thing that still puzzles me is the center beam between the two sets of drawers.. If you look closely it's a...
  2. Thank you for the kind compliment. I agree. In fact I bought 3 of his works. Good to know my taste isn't too bad. I'm new to art.
  3. I didn't mention that for ears he has two small lines. In research that is exactly what reddy kilowatt should have. Thank you so so much. Again I am amazed at the depth if knowledge here. What do y...
  4. Thabk you very much for the input. I've looked there, auction arms and gunbroker. While the m95 is quite similar I think you will find it does not have a detachable magazine. I believe this is one of ...
  5. Amazing, thank you so much. I was leaning toward the communion wafer but wasnt sure. That has to be a record for speed in solving a mystery.
  6. Thank you so much. My wife just loves him and now we know he's not an orphan he has a family lol
  7. Thank you so much! I'd be disappointed in the purchase but for 5 bucks I might just try to make a rug. The gentleman also sold me a multi tool awl that, while it works great for leather, may have be...
  8. Ocr transcript seems off but there he is in the Fresno bee. Thank you so much to Scott and Fort apache. We saved a man's memory and it's something to be proud of. I will work to compile more of his hi...
  9. George F. Webb, Former Fresnan, Dies In L. A. George F. Webb. 74, former Fresno carpenter and -well known in labor circles here, died Tuesday in Los Angeles where he moved about twelve years ago. Surv...
  10. Found another in the 1910 census that seems to match perfectly. George f webb married kate webb. She was born 1870 and was in Fresno ca for the 1910 census. That was all I could obtain without a subsc...
  11. I understand what you're saying about the use of the word commrade. I still believe there is more to the story when it comes to communist infiltration of these organizations. It was a major concern in...
  12. Dodge & ascher. Same ray dodge who went on to design the Oscar award
  13. Also, United indian war vets was created as a counter organization to the national indian war vets after george w webb gained control. Interestingly I've noticed communications seem very... communist,...
  14. I've hit nothing but dead ends. I don't consider the names on the pictures to be signatures but I do find it interesting that the name webb matches up almost exactly withe the hand writing on one of t...
  15. Tru test fan 30s or 40s vintage
  16. Is it just me or are the signatures for the webbs different specifically the w and b's in the name webb are different on the top row from the ones on the 1932 convention, which seem to be written by t...
  17. I may have been mistaken about this particular George webb. I assumed given the small number of veterans involved that the likelihood of 2 George webb members was pretty slim. I believe I was mistaken
  18. Interesting that you ask that. It will take more time to answer the question, you see, according to my main source (https://books.google.com/books?id=IQMEaHtv5wwC&pg=PR40&lpg=PR40&dq=niwv+uiwv+webb&so...
  19. You seem familiar with the history of these badges. Perhaps you would be interested to know that they belonged to George webb. I now have his wife badge as well. George webb was apparently instrum...
  20. Thank you so so much. I wasn't into vintage bikes until I came across a couple sales now I have a 1970 harley leggero project and a few random parts lying about. I guess I need to make more room in th...
  21. Thanks, I drove pretty quick once I saw the pictures. I think the saddle is just awesome and probably would have paid close to 100 bucks just for it. I'm used to seeing the English style saddle on the...
  22. The wealth of knowledge here never disappoints me. Thank you all so much for your information.
  23. Thanks again Chris. Of not for you mentioning the unusual appearance of the leather washer I'd have missed it for who know how long. You guys are amazing
  24. Not iron just old dried leather. Part of the scabbard and yes it says germany just beneath the star. So it appears this sword dates to between world wars.
  25. It is not a leather washer that covers the star but an iron collar. Could it perhaps be a part of the scabbard that has come loose?
  26. From what I understand 1902 swords are among the least collectible for this very reason. They are too hard to identify and too widely available. I bought the samurai sword because I got a better price...
  27. This sword has what im assuming is a bakalite grip since it looks nothing like horn and it's surely not metal it appears to be brass beneath the guard and iron beneath the scabbard. Left facing eagle ...
  28. Ok, I've confused the matter and I'm sorry for doing so. The sword marked China would be the katana we were discussing prior. I should have been more clear. The 1902 sword here has no markings as to m...
  29. Oh I did some digging. And I looked at 1902 swords till my eyes hurt. I can get obsessive like that at times. By the way, I took the sword apart again and found what I always knew would be there. Made...
  30. Not exactly correct. While most were not interlocking triangles there were a few manufacturers who did make it this way horstmann was one I found in my research. From what I understand, the star was s...
  31. I completely agree. It seems all wrong for this application. I have removed the frog (with some difficulty) and I'll save it for another sword
  32. You've gone a step further in your assumptions then I did. While I'm sure that officers didn't wear there swords while in the Pacific theater I think it's worth remembering that we are home. Is it pos...
  33. I get what your saying, I had read that different plating methods, handles and other such technical details can be used to narrow down the age to within a decade or so. I suppose the question is rathe...
  34. Absolutely brilliant and thorough response. I would never have guessed. I believe my original assumption is proof of that. Thank you so so much
  35. At 12 inches it must be for use on a calf. Thank you so so much for your assistance. And the pig in a poke reference, well that is just outstanding. I would have honestly never understood the meaning ...
  36. That's my assumption too. The practice bombs were filled with sand or water but in all the pictures I've gone through I've not seen this hole. It could just be a different model of practice bomb but I...
  37. Amazing right? In researching them I found an article from 1905 of a hit and run in chicago. The police chased the suspect on their bicycles but were unable to catch up. I can see the need for regulat...
  38. That is fantastic information. Thank you so so much. The closest examples I've found have been sri lankan in origin. Sorry it took so long to give my thanks for your assistance everyone.
  39. True, but the glass dome seems made for this application (I took it apart) there are felt pads on either end and the pieces sit on top of each other rather than properly assemble. The only thing hold...
  40. Well it kept me up all night and then some but it's a betel mortar and pestle. Not far off from what I assumed. It's a type of nut consumed in asia. Thanks for all the input and motivation
  41. Definitely a thought. I was just assuming it was a grinder for coffee pepper salt or even something more exotic like hash or whatever they used back then and there. Given it's size it seems more of a ...
  42. See more
