Don't let the reverse N be a mystery. It dates between 250 - 100 BC . The designer wasn't dyslexic.
Sorry I lost track of this post and had to find it again. I wanted to check a couple things. Yes I have an idea what it is. If it was posted right side up you would see a bow, like you put on Christma...
The fact that your machine vends 4 cent stamps would date it 1958 of after. Letter rates went to 4 cents in 58. The four cent rate stayed in effect until 1963. That should give you a close time frame ...
I forgot to say that was back in the 1950's.
I remember this type machine being in grocery stores and five and ten cent stores when I was a kid. If you needed stamps at night or on the weekend you could get them at the store when the post office...
Probably few would know what I meant by Greek Latin. It goes back to the Roman Conquest of Greece. The vocabulary and spoken word have totally different meanings than polished modern Latin. No harm do...
Who ever told you that was either smoking or drinking some really bad stuff.
You will probably find it by searching Italian tourist souvenir pocket knives.
My great Aunt had these. She was a seamstress. I believe, but not sure that it is called a fitting clip. If your pants or dress needed to be shortened they would be folded up to the right height and t...
Years ago Solingen steel was some of the finest made. During WWII it was almost totally bombed out. When things calmed down businesses rebuilt and along the way went to stainless steel. Your knife pro...
The clip on the back isn't in keeping with a drawer pull. Why do you assume it is?
It should weigh 5.670 grams and be 1.75 mm thick and diameter of 24.66 mm. I have been known to use quarters to calibrate my scales because they keep their accuracy quite well if undamaged. Now if...
I tried a translation of the words on the front. The results showed it is Greek Latin and stands for Crown Coat of Arms. Not sure that helps but I was curious so thought I would share it.
If you found this at the school site it could have been they had their own uniforms for the students to wear. Button may have come off a school uniform. Researching the school might shed light on the ...
I took a bunch of these of different sizes out of an old barn up north years ago. The ones I removed were mounted on a wall and were supporting fairly thick shelves. I have no idea if that was the ori...
I can't speak for the purse but I can tell you about "Made Exclusively in the USA". That was a scam manufacturers used to sucker people into thinking they were getting something really special off a d...
I have never seen these signs on public streets etc. but I have seen them years ago. The ones I saw were at places like the Zoo or kiddie animal petting farms etc. They were a reminder to hold your ki...
I agree with Bobby725. The fittings are wrong for gas. I would also say a water concentration meter.
I especially like the ones with the checker design grip. Much better than modern ones. I don't work on clocks but I do work on electronics equipment and these are quite handy.
I wonder if I could ask what materiel the jaws are made of? Most of my vises have brass jaws but one has hard rubber and another steel. I sold off all the big ones because I am to old to lift them any...
They are best known for their gas meters but also made other types. Should be a model number on this and pictures of the connection ports would help.
Obviously German so using the company name and including German made in your search string should bring you back all the info you need.
Yes it is, just not a top end one. Although Starrett was a very well respected company for the quality of their instruments. You should have no problem researching it. You have the company name and nu...
Back when I grew up they always told me, If it has t*ts or tires you gonna have trouble with it.
I will add a bit more that I am sure you will welcome. The marks were only used from 1910 to 1920. The switches were even used on Tiffany lamps. While you may not see a mark, the experts say to look a...
The "F" switch was made by Franklin switch company. Old ones the F was inside a triangle, from there they went to the F inside a circle and finally to just the letter F.
The letter on the switch would refer to the company that made the switch, not the lamp.
Yes I did and it is most commonly called a crank table if it is what I assume it is. The pictures of it are of little help. Most of them open anywhere from6 to 18 inches to expand them. Not possible f...
I tend to agree with Gillian but will add that early 1900's could be anytime prior to 1950. I sooner think it is more mid 1900's post war years possibly a bit earlier.
I don't think he is an antique just yet. Although he is old. I know he had a name and I believe these came in a set or series. I seem to think either the A&P Tea store or the Grand Union gave them out...
OK, 1 dm2 = 1 square decimeter which is rarely used now days. It was also written sq dm.
I sure remember that keramikos. As I recall the hot water out of the faucet wasn't actually hot enough back when we had open flame water heaters. We never had an electric one until 1964 or 65. What a ...
I believe I just found the answer to the 1,5 mark with a comma as opposed to a decimal point. I will share here what I found. 1,5 being a secondary mark indicated 1,5 g thickness of silver layer de...
That hot dip took place back at the campfire where there was a big pot of boiling water.
Lots of shadows in the pictures but I would say it is an old hand held thatcher.
I would say it is a pruning knife and not even close to that old. They are also called a gardening knife. Used to prune and also cut roots under ground.
I assure you we washed them. I had this set in the mid 50's. You didn't carry it on a belt because it was only used at meal time. You kept it inside your mess kit. After a meal your mess kit might be ...
That #2 picture shows how much a mother she is. Thanks for sharing them. They may not be antique but they are collectable so they fit right in.
These books were a series and I believe first edition was published in the 1850's by Putnam. I believe Appleton mass produced them after the original first editions. I can't seem to find my Book of Bo...
Why not look on the Australian eBay site for a scabbard? That would be the most logical place to find one.
The stamp should read Vulcan,T. Ellin & Co., Sheffield or Thomas Ellin & Co. they were in business from 1840 to 1933. Their Vulcan series was based on the fact that, Vulcan was a mythical creature th...
Spaulding and Frost is a cooperage not terribly far from where I used to live. To put it simply they make barrels. Far as I know they are still in business at the same location and if you research the...
Where did you ever find this relic? I believe it is older than me and I am approaching antique age. Long ago, before I was born you could buy boat kits, paint the parts and put them together by simply...
If you go to the link I will post you can see the Oswego Tool Company catalog from 1920. Clicking on the catalog page will advance you to the next page. You will see your pipe cutter there. https:/...
Looks like an old pipe cutter without the cutting wheel installed. Pipe cutters don't have any gripper teeth they work with just tightening the tension as you cut.
Have you had a close look in his ears? Under and around his arms? Albany was well know for putting their marks in those locations. I would doubt it being Hubley, B&H or National because of the dimensi...
I hope you don't paint this one. You didn't mention his weight but his dimensions, color and looking at his foot bottoms and joinery you may well have a late 1800's early 1900's Hubley
This one appears to be worth 25 cents because of the dings on front and the wear on the reverse. If it was certified MS+ or better it would be worth a few dollars. Condition and being graded and certi...
keramikos I am familiar with that type dose calculator and a couple others. I kept my wife home until she died and had to calculate her doses. The morphine was easy other stuff not so easy. With this...
According to the the Encyclopedia of World Silver marks Auerhahn started in business in 1951 and today is a division of WMF. Every piece of theirs I found used standard silver marks if it is actually ...
