  1. I forgot to add: My dad does not fish. He just likes to collect old things. He likely picked this up from a yard sale or auction somewhere on the East Coast, but has no recollection exactly when and w...
  2. Yes, that's a great reference. Now I just need him to compare it to those photos and also see if his dagger has any markings on it. Thanks!
  3. I appreciate all of your responses. I wanted to chime in, but the powers that be at my work frown upon non-work related internet usage. Anyway, my friend said his uncle, whom he hasn't talked to for m...
  4. Thanks for the replies!
  5. Thanks for all of the comments so far. Please keep them coming! :)
  6. Hello, and thanks for the feedback so far, everyone. There are no markings on the bottom of that particular item. I can try maybe looking with a magnifying glass to see if there is anything faint, bu...
  7. Wow, thanks for all the help on the "flask". I hope no one will be offended if I remove those images and put some more Asian-looking items on.
  8. Just wanted to add that there is a faint etched hallmark that can be seen in the last picture.
  9. Hi, Bluderbuss2, and thanks for the reply. Just to be clear, did you mean it looks like the Shaker style, or did you mean that it is a reproduction in that style? Thanks!
  10. Thanks for the info. So far, I have yet to see another example of this particular photo, but I will keep looking...
  11. Hello. Notman is the name of the photographer, a rather well-known (I believe Canadian) photographer. I am not sure what he is holding.
  12. Thanks for the information.
  13. You may want to contact Heritage Auctions or Sideshow Collectibles for an estimate. They auction comic book memorabilia and might be able to help you.
  14. Thanks for the information! Maybe some of the foreign ones are worth something. Either way, they are neat to look at, especially due to the historical aspect.
  15. Thanks for the potential leads, everyone. I will keep on searching and see what turns up. As for the markings on the blade, they are so obscure that I am wondering if there are really any markings at ...
  16. Hello, and thanks for the response. there is a bit of rust on the blade obscuring any information. Very, very faintly, under the rest there seems to be the trace of old letters...I think I can see an ...
  17. Hahaha! That's the best response ever!
  18. Could the answer be so simple? I thought it seemed too fancy a presentation to be a stopper. RobinHawaii... did you mean 1891 or 1991?
  19. From my limited knowledge, during the Civil War, when supplies were limited, they used wallpaper to print the news. The issues around July 2-4 are supposed to be the rarest (and most valuable) issues....
  20. Thank you. This is a case where the monetary value is far less than the sentimental value/coolness factor, so I will keep them :)
  21. Thanks for the response. I was wondering if it had been "field altered" to be a combat knife...
  22. 1942 Ohman Print, Memphis. Cased Closed.
  23. Updated photo and added another. The photo is on a cardboard-like card with photo studio information on the back. Not sure about the age on this one but the new picture is (according to text on revers...
  24. Just wanted to add that I appreciate the suggestions :)
  25. Hi, Ar8Jason, I tried your suggestion but still no dice. I have checked the other parts thoroughly with a magnifying glass and I cannot spot other markings...
  26. Thanks for the comment AR8Jason. I did check there. Even with a magnifying glass, there is just enough corrosion that I cannot read even a letter.
