Not quite a city or town but a place with a post office and as Alpine was taken they came up with Twin Peaks. The odd thing being that there is only one peak. Anyway my speciality is toys of the 1960s although I collect much more. I have a particular weakness for taxidermy which includes everything from insects to bear skin rugs although I don't have a bear skin rug yet. fortapacheftr@charter.net (Read more)

  2. Doing my obligatory the KKK were not nice but appreciate the historic value of this photo. Plus the large and unusual size. I would just clean it up as best as possible without heroic efforts.
  3. Great design and color.

  11. Can't go wrong with a beetle.
  12. Thank you very much Olecody. I'll post another batch next week.
  13. It helps to use a PC to post photos instead of a portable device. Try resizing your photos smaller and upload them again. You will have to delete the current photo which is done under "edit post".
  14. We need more of this here. Post them one at a time. Pressed steel gold.
  15. Thank you very much toyrebel. Luckily there are still a few more for me to get.
  16. Great collection. Now you must post them one at a time. Trust me it will be great, you will fit right in here. Thermoses too.
  17. I was thinking souvenir sword but it has knob w3here a frog would attach so could be something military. Maybe possibly that is. I wouldn't have bought it myself.
  18. Wagen actually means car or other such vehicle. The company that made the sign may not have been German.
  19. A fine looking scout troop. That box is pretty neat.
  20. Love that ladder truck. I may have to expand to Dinky soon.

  23. Thank you very much Toyrebel. It does indeed have articles for all boys.
  24. $150 is a fair price for all parties. Probably circa 1900. Looks like you need ttomtucker for real help as I am a more casual collector.
  25. The wear does look good on that one.
  26. My daffydils are coming up out of the snow. In the meantime I am scheduled 48 hours at work this week. I am actually glad about that we shall see how that goes.

  28. Thank you very much elanski. I should try and get that.

  36. Thank you very much Newfld. Thank you very much iggy. I think there is an antique mall that uses an Kresge building in Pomona. Thank you very much Watchsearcher. Yes a dual set of price tags!
  37. Love that ruck. You know I know what it is like to complete a set. A coworker got mad at me because I paid $50 for an empty box.
