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)

  1. Yes people like to take the décor now. It is unfortunate but luckily you got this one.
  2. Possibly a factory error rather than a variation. Or perhaps they don't count that. Since MCCH is gone I don't have access to all the experts there.
  3. Does it seem to be stuffed with straw? The older ones were.
  4. Thank you very much Newfld. Thank you very much keramikos. OK we will use the eBay system. Thank you very much OLECODY. The last photo is a whitetail.
  5. Thank you very much Bill. Next great find will be finding a donor bayonet.
  6. Thank you very much elanski. A fine choice. Thank you very much Ms.CrystalShip. Got a feeling your parents were not too happy.
  7. These are really neat. I would collect more pressed steel but I am out of room.
  8. Yes he does belong in the toy hall of fame, a classic.
  9. A porcelain license plate, have never seen that.
  10. Thank you very much Newfld and yes they do.
