What are collections?
World War Two
Military and Wartime
It's a reproduction, it has the "Vintage" stamp on the bottom. Original redline HW's do not have the "vintage" on the bottom, Mattel did a "Vintage" series a few years back. Sorry, but not a real vint...
It appears to be posters of WW2 Submarine battle flags, all submarines have their own personal flag/badge. The names below the insignias are the submarines name, USS Pogy..etc. They would fly their o...
Just a few more comments, the felt on the bottom is so the ashtray would not slide around a table-top or counter-top in high sea states. My best guess is this was an Officers ashtray and was used on b...
http://www.navsource.org/archives/04/091/04091.htm this website has most of your information. This ship was reclassified a CG-5 in 1975 and decommisioned in 1979. This was probably a decommissioning ...
I collect hotwheels, so I'm not really a Corgi expert, but things like variations to the toy may rise the price....I.E. interior color, wheel/hub design, where it's made, exterior color..etc. Hotwheel...
Tom, thats the red dye from the bank security....FBI will be visiting you soon! Just kidding!!!..LOL
and I beleive #4 is an '80's Oldsmobile
#3 is a late '70's early '80's T-bird
There use to be a Braniff Airlines in the 1980's, it didn't stay in buisness long. Maybe this has something to do with that, not sure though.
Growing up, my Dad always had this on the fireplace mantel, great childhhod memories. It does look like it is missing the colored plastic ligh bulb covers as well. My Dad's had a red and a white cover...
Nice! I have a huge collection of HW's, dating back to the first 16. If this is an authentic white enamel camaro, you've got a GREAT collectors item, worth quite a bit. I would have it looked at by an...
Nice safe! A good locksmith can make a key with no damage to the safe, good luck.
I had one too, thanks!
I remember using these in high school in the early eighties! Thanks for the memories!!!
I agree with Walksoftly, valve handles. I see blue paint on them, the color blue usually stands for a water valve, ..yellow is hydraulic..etc.
Pics 1 and 2 looks like it's the same engine in both.
TGBWC...LOL, nice comment....Pop_abides is the buy/sell/rules police!!! LOL. Larryscripter, nice clock!!
NICE!!! Loved this show as a kid!
I was thinking the same thing....school bus.....
Nice cars!! What's up with the yellow MG? Love those cars!!
Nice! And I'm sure you know the Cord is worth a pretty penny also!
Looks almost brand new! Very nice! I did communications on submarines for 21 years, and love the older radios!
They look like small "half" pistols. LOL!! I had too. Actually they look like they may have been some type of ornamental pieces that attached to wood or something. Neat find though. What area of U.S....
Possibly a paint mixer/shaker?
A little more info for you. Jim International Radio Call Sign: November - Papa - Xray - Kilo NPXK -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- USS Admiral E...
I especially like the ones with the boomer submarine on it, having spent 21 years on submarines myself. With that type of submarine, I was guessing between late 1950's thru mid 1970's. fhrjr2 was eve...
I have never seen an award/medal such as that one, below is a little more information about the ship. USS MILWAUKEE (CL 5) -----------------------------------------------------------------------...
The Nautilus still exsists, it's a Museum up in Groton, CT. If you ever get a chance, check it out, it still looks like it could go back to sea if it had too!
I've spent 21 years of my life on these beasts, stationed on the Ohio, Maryland and Wyoming. Been to sea as an inspector on most of the east coast Tridents, including Kentucky. They are massive and ha...
Is #4 possibly an old police car? No idea of what make.
I believe Fords theater was three stories not four.
This is a very low security type padlock, it uses a very simple type key, a locksmith could probably make a key or have a key for it, but to be honest, I think that would cost more than the lock is wo...
As a former locksmith, the number on the back "B35493" is the number Master ran to get you your combination, most good local locksmiths have books with all these numbers in them to get the combination...
After spending 21 years onboard US Navy Submarines, I have always loved submarine history. Great pieces you have here. Would love to find some type of these things myself!
chevy59, nice lock.... sufyan, if you put actual "oil" into the lock, you made it worse...as a former locksmith i can tell you, oil gunks up the inside tumblers of a lock, and this type of padlock usi...
Love it!! I used to have one close to this as a kid. Wish I still had it!!!
Could it be half of an old "Holiday Inn" sign? Just guessing.
Here's some information you may or may not already have, hope it helps. LST-1 Class Tank Landing Ship: Laid down, 17 July 1942, at Norfolk Navy Yard, Portsmouth, VA. Launched, 8 November 1942 ...
Very neat! How did you happen to get this?
Here's a little more info if it helps. Nice buckle! Specifications: Class: Courtney Type: SCB No. 72 / 1954 - 55 Number in Class: 10 Displacement: 1,314 tons (light), 1,877 tons (full) Le...
It could be a vent cover for a fuel storage tank. But the three strings throw me for a loop though.
If I remember corretly, one side was very flat aned the other side bumpy.
We had the same items as a kid in the early '70's as well, had all kind of different figures, ours all got thrown out in 1980 when we moved, I loved those decorations!!!
Wow!! What an amazing man and story!! You must be extremely proud! God bless all men and women of our armed forces! Let us never forget 7 DEC 1941.
It appears to be a MARX engine, made in the USA, probably around the 1950's or so. Not much value to it. I searched on Ebay and they have partial sets including the complete train, tracks and some b...
Scottvev...Thank you for your service! Regg243...good comment, sometimes while underway, we would just sit and look around at all the "stuff" surrounding us, and just be amazed!!! So much technology...
Nice item! I have collected glass cups and plates from submarines I've been stationed on. Are you a submariner?
My issue is that 90% of Pop's comments/replies to other peoples postings are very negative and degrading. I open a posting to see what the poster has to say about their item, and then, there is Pop's ...
