Not positive but I think this tilt top was produced from 1890 to around 1920 when the flip top was introduced.
what you are seeing on the coin is nothing but nickel tetracarbonyl, quite common.
Looks dirty to me. Use a pencil eraser and rub it and see if your copper shines or goes away.
PS: Thus far on historical military sites I have found that the govt issued these in sterling silver as part of the uniform from 1939 - 1945.
Thanks scottvez. The one you list here is an example of where I am getting the conflict on being govt issued. The one you list is done on one side only with a vibrating type engraver. The one I posted...
I seem to get conflicting information on whether these bracelets were govt issue. Anyone have a sure fire site that answers it?
I have a friend in a little town called Hancock, NH who bought two of these and connected them together and made himself a home. He did it before zoning laws and got away without paying home taxes. Be...
Not exactly what I was looking for but I believe this is actually teak wood.
Your clock works are marked GHS which is Gordian Hettich Sohn. They sold their clock works to anyone who was building clock cases. I think they went out of business around 1920 but not at all positive.
Anythingobscure I haven't seen one of these used in 60 years but I can try to explain. Step one would be to place the end of the cigar into the hole where the tube shaped piece is and close it to mak...
If the inside of the drawers is unfinished could you post a picture of the inside of a drawer front? The exterior of this isn't telling me it is maple.
Probably around 1950's. Research vintage danish short desk. If I were you I wouldn't rush into doing a restoration unless you are a professional. Some of these go for thousands of dollars if done cor...
Anythingobscure I left it alone for two hours waiting for someone else to jump in. I didn't want to leave it as an egg cutter.
To answer the rest of Loidiboid's question, this is much closer to 100 years old than 40 years old.
The one I posted in the link is exact to the one above and taken from the same search page you did. Check it out: https://www.google.ca/search?q=antique+cigar+cutter&sxsrf=ACYBGNRtgBlLGfkMHV2HtWEzBjc...
Here is your answer to the puzzle. https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/forster/antiques/cigar-cutter-scissors-antique-circa-1900-reduced-from-99-to-80/1208148857
There is certainly a cutting edge in photo #1. Take note of the bevel on the piece with the numbers stamped on it. I believe you will find it is a vintage cigar cutter.
Lets not count our eggs before they hatch. If you look at the cutting edge on this, it has cut something way more resistant than an egg. However, if the quail eggs are pickled I will have a few with m...
Wooden match would be 36 to 48 mm so they would fit if this opens.
You didn't give dimensions or mention if one end comes off. However, my 2 cents would say it is an antique match safe for wooden sulfur tip matches.
Here is the government web site where you can research your patent number. https://www.uspto.gov/patents-application-process/search-patents
Looks like a fairly easy project. I would tend to agree with sheet music.
Thanks Newfld. I have this man's brother's dog tags and bronze star here still along with discharge papers, war diaries etc. He went to the Pacific to help free the islands. He made it home in one pie...
Having them knocked off is easy to cure. Whether on scaffolding or ladder jacks a C-clamp on each end will prevent them from sliding to where they fall. I'm to old to handle these anymore so I have a ...
Hmmm, I never have seen brass keys made of cast iron. Must be quite unique.
I thought some of the military collectors on here might like seeing this.
These were never issued to the military. This is a 1950's Maddox knee hole, double pedestal desk or a reproduction of one. I tend to think a reproduction because it lacks a plinth base. This isn't the...
I have sold off all my Fiesta ware but I would say this is not Fiesta ware. The handle is wrong. This is probably an attempt to copy Fiesta.
This is a vintage folding library step ladder. I have seen a good many of them when I was a kid. They were made by many different companies and you will find many of them online.
You didn't give any dimensions but I still have a similar one I bought back in the late 1980's. Mine was made for a tractor feed dot matrix printer and paper. Back then there were no ink jet printers ...
The saying is only the first line, written by Robert Browning. You seldom see the entire verse anymore.
That little bend at the end had a very good reason for being there. Years ago cars had a little flip open oil port way down behind the engine where the distributor shaft went into the block. You neede...
Looks like the top half of a drop in trivet to me. Should have been a three leg base it set into. The handle is to straight to set into a burner cover opening.
Can't see the joinery of the box or the inside but the one latch that shows would make me think you may have over dated it by a few decades. At 36" I would expect probably a survey map. If you are nea...
Brings back old memories. Years ago I grew up in a very rural area out in the country. Everyone had their own dump out behind the house, far enough away where you wouldn't smell it. There were no city...
If it is tested and has film in it and the original case they actually sell for around $100 if in like new condition. Lots of them the same for sale but most actually sell for half what I quoted above...
Try researching, brine thermometer or vintage brine thermometer.
I believe Osborne computers ran on CP/M rather than PC-DOS or MS-DOS.
A five dollar antique. I would call that the deal of a lifetime.
Part of your problem may be that it isn't a coin, it is a token. You will find hundreds of thousands of them if you research it as a token. Everybody and their brother had them made and being unmarked...
Last one like this that actually sold on eBay went for $126.
I fail to see the name Peters or anything close.
There are openings on both sides on the back of this. Ar those openings about the size to stack up shoe boxes? This reminds me of a salesman's shoe fitting chair that might be found in a shoe store ye...
I had a 1973 T-5 limited edition. I got it through the PX in Germany. Fun car on the autobahn.
Struggling with my memory but I believe c6 is a pewter touch mark that indicates fineness or quality. A touch mark is to pewter what a maker mark or hallmark is to silver. I seem to remember it being ...
I'm not sure what you consider a torch?? Some people call a lantern a torch others think along the lines of a cutting, welding or soldering torch. If you consider a lantern a torch then this might qua...
My eyes aren't the best but the insignia on the face of the clock where 12 would be, looks like a senior air balloon pilot insignia.
Good looking and nice it has all the teeth. I have one posted on my page that I have no idea who the original owner was. It washed up out of the Atlantic after a storm.
Pictures like this won't get you much, other than being ignored. I will post the site FAQ below. Had you read it you would be in better shape. Start over and give us something to work with. Rotate ...
Here in Florida, FOX 13 business news ran a segment this morning about board games making a sudden comeback. They predict sales to skyrocket through 2023. Might not hurt to hold on to these games for ...
