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. (Read more)

  1. Thank you very much Newfld. All us guys are Grumpy. Thank you very much elanski. They did not sadly. Thank you very much valentino97. Having the set is good.
  2. Thank you very much Lata. The box is at least half the price.
  3. Nice model but not worth a lot. Maybe $10 to the right person. It is 1/43 scale.
  4. That is a really neat piece. It has earned its rust.
  5. Looks like a Black Forest Koo Koo Clock. Very cool.
  6. Thank you very much again keramikos. That is quite a bit of information.
  7. I would buy that too. Still kicking myself for not buying some pumps at $125 each.
  8. Perfect for pulling a 25 pounder.
  9. Thank you very much Newfld. Thank you very much Ms.CrystalShip. Another is coming up!
  10. Perfect for the 4th of July.
  11. Mosser Glass the last American glass company.
  12. That does sound like a great show. I've never been to a 7 hour show.
  13. Thank you very much racer4four. It is doing OK for going on 60.
  14. Thank you very much Ms.CrystalShip. I will be happy to tell you about your shoe unless TallCakes beats me to it.
  15. Thank you very much Ms.CrystalShip. It is always good to be in the right place at the right time. Thank you very much AO. Stop by and I'll give you a box full.
  16. Thank you very much keramikos. I think that makes this pre 1947. My guess is 1920s.
  17. Thank you very much Ms.CrystalShip. I tragic tale indeed. I need to amend this post. You may note I have lots and lots of depression glass. This is elegant glass which I need to change in the catego...
  18. That one does seem to be a hand cranked unit, very neat. I like the cover too.
  19. I would love to have an RR sign. Very nice.
  20. Thank you very much Watchsearcher. Yes North Carolina Henna not as exciting. IHenna is also used for temp tattoos so it probably is a dye.
  21. Model 28 from 1910. Is that a hand cranked unit?
  22. Hit @1 on the CW charts!
  23. Thank you very much Newfld. Can't go wrong with a 57 Bel Air unless you lower it. Thank you very much elanski. There was life beyond the grey scale once. Thank you very much Ms.CrystalShip. My b...
  24. Neat. Something different than the usual BBQ.
  25. I was going for older too. I nice interior like that is uncommon.
  26. Looks like it may be for ren fair reenactors. It is a bit dated as fighting axes have a smaller edge.
  27. It probably isn't old. They still make wood stoves like that. I have one that is similar. Much more efficient than a fireplace.
  28. Thank you very much Iptools. I do not recall us having silver. We were lower budget.
  29. I have some anscestor photos from that time too. Always good to have.
  30. Thank you very much racer4four but where is the hidden cat?
  31. Looks like Depression Glass to me as it is green and not yellow.
  32. I was just going to tell you to look underneath but you beat me to it.
  33. Nothing sucks like an Electrolux.
  34. Thank you very much Toyrebel.
  35. Your post has made it to #3 for the week!
  36. So cool. Perfect for my museum of political incorrectness.
  37. Yes Dave Brubeck had a big hit in the 80s with Turning Japanese (I really think so).
  38. Thank you very much Newfld. They will be good fins. Thank you very much Lata. They are so big you would have to go to spain to turn it around. Thank you very much Toyrebel. One of those would b...
  39. I necked down round much more powerful then the typical .22.
  40. Very cool. The American term would be tow truck. Matchbox called them wreckers too.
  41. Looking forward to your Blue and Gray set. Still in the mood for a set myself probably Battleground.
  42. Interesting history and a great looking model. Wears its wear well.
  43. Sadly 3985 has been retired. Apparently it is need of a complete rebuild and UP is not up to operating 3 large steam locomotives. But never say never as Big Boy was sitting in Pomona for 50 years with...
  44. Rollers are from the pre carpet days so those are a good sign of having some age. I wouldn't touch it. Despite all you see on TV about restoring antiques that generally will decrease value.
  45. Not looking good for the guy getting in the boat.
  46. My forvoritest Yes album.
  47. Actually I think it is Mosser Glass #321. Thought it looked a bit bright for 1909.
  48. Keen Kutter is too good a saw to paint. Tell him an expert told you not to.
  50. It's a pan lifter for deep dish pizza or a pan like that. Note the open space on the clamp. That is where the lip of the pan goes.
