  13. The Cunard White Star Line exited 1934 to 1949. Of course the case could be older... T A
  14. First guy is Theodor Heuss, the first President of the Federal Republic of Germany. The second guy is Kurt Schumacher, he was the leader of the Social-Democrat Party from 1945 to 1952. They are ...

  19. T A
  20. I think you are correct, the company held several patients for rug loom innovations and had a giant factory in New Jersey. So I don’t think it’s a case of them importing rugs from Asia and putting the...

  28. Cigarette Holder. T A
  29. There is an appraisal link on the main page. Since it isn’t fine art, but a mass production piece, it’s value is as a decor piece — depending on how bad someone wants it. Sorry it’s not the answer...
  30. T A
  31. I’m thinking that there is enough “silver” on the edge to think that it’s an environmental/chemical discoloration and not missing the cupronickel on both sides. The coin would be a bit lighter in weig...
  32. You’re welcome. T A
  33. No, sorry. It’s most likely die deterioration, some would argue that it machine doubling, but I note the wear at the top of the motto “In God We Trust”. T A
