  1. How do you navigate through the house without bumping your head? I sure do admire how you have your place decked out. It all looks great!
  2. Ha, I like the comments as much as the picture!
  3. Nice one! To me, the lollypop is the best sign of them all! Hey officialfuel, what would a 48' coke button in good condition bring ? I got a gentleman who wants to get rid of one. Has Coke and the b...
  4. That is a $100.00 nickel, if not more. Show it to the error collecting crowd and I'm sure they will be interested.
  5. Constructive criticizism for free. I built a bottle shelf as yours out of 1"x 6" and 1"x8" boards. After I loaded it up, it sagged slightly and within a year it sagged a lot. You MAY need a center sup...
  6. ha AAAhh ha ha ha the ole horse head in bed...
  7. Good eye and good sense not to buy until researched.
  8. So much for being a orchard heater. Thanks sologato for a definite confirmation. I have seen one and did not know what I had seen.
  9. Alan's Marble...google that and get to a very good site for marbles
  10. Nice arrangements for the collection
  11. Nice saw!! I just sold my vintage saw collection keeping only my two man MALL chainsaw.
  12. Guys, I tried to trade him a insulated metal shed 14' X 24' but he wanted to maintain the cellar under the building and I could not tear it down and put my shed over the hole without a crane and heavy...
  13. Looks better the way it is...
  14. Thanks ohiogma I saw one in what was deemed a pool hall in the early 1960;s and another one on a lamp in a store which advertised the store. Both before 1965. I have since obtained a second shade but...
  15. Could be related to the Dare Stone coming from that area. Cool and worth showing an archeologist.
  16. PhilDMorris Thank You, we must look into that in our research. Some where there is suppose to be a German maker involved according to her grandmother.
  17. Brewtopia, Yep, I thought the same. I figure during that time period, women were not showing their ankles yet. Ha It is actually a fold out ad and once folded down it shows all the shoe types and off...
  18. SpiritBear, OK for Oklahoma or just for being OK Tree Dude. I had a web page and at one time ran crews in all of eastern Oklahoma. I occasionally do tree work but mainly I salvage what people call jun...
  19. Garage sale find? Cool bottle.
  20. Dave and Crew, If the " Trade Mark" on the tail of the "C" is not centered in the V shape beneath it. That is not a good sign. I noticed your sign has it centered more on the " D & E' in Trade Mark th...
  21. That is a nice 1948 coffee can! Nice marbles also.
  22. cindyjune, These large mouth D22 are hard to find. Take note, on your lids, look for miss-spelling on the GOOD HOUSEKEEPING. Those are $15.00 lids. I learned of that when I researched PRESTO
  23. He has 4 Falcon Station wagons out there.
  24. The face of the signs are on the inside and they are just absolutely pristine with exception of a few. I pulled the panel back and looked at them. You could not see them unless the inside paneling was...
  25. Rattletrap, I'm about to post something that drives both of us crazy. Check it out in a few mins.
  26. Hmmmm. I would have bought it also. I have all sorts of strange tools
  27. I love these old rusty trucks standing guard over the hillocks of southern Oklahoma or Utah or wherever. My buddy's grandma sold me a junk, scrap 1933 Chev truck that set out in the field looking so c...
  28. P.S. Did anyone take notice of the white porcelain pendant light on a gooseneck hanging over my shoulder and behind me? Yep, I go cut a limb off his fence next week in exchange for that light.
  29. shareurpassion YES. The red ones are officially put out by Griswold. Red enamel exterior and a creme enamel interior. And you are correct about resale they sale quick and they keep their price. When,...
  30. Looks like a reproduction of the 1896 model stove
  31. SpiritBear, a CW cook out???!! Surely you jest. Where when?
  32. fortapache, ...and this is not all of them. I believe there are 14 more which did not fit in photo or hanging by stove or on the stove and at least one in the sink.
  33. I just learned last week that the MAJESTIC cast iron was made by Griswold for the stove company. I passed many Majestic's up over the years, but now I pick them up and do so cheaply. Am I the only slo...
  34. The last pic is her #14 and #12
  35. I think you need more COKE signs....After all COKE and Harley Davidson are the #1 selling signs
  36. I'm starting to get into Satsuma vases. I have learned one important thing: buy the ones of religious themes or maidens with hand maidens seem to sell quick. I use to buy and sale but now I keep the ...
  37. It is a functional conversation piece. Yes double indeedy. My wife has something like it but not in this nice condition. Looks like it would save a lot of money on electricity..
  38. Yes, my fears and my trust is as yours. We are thinning down greatly week by week and keep enough to decorate. Carry on young man
  39. fortapache, I don't know what type of steel it is, but a file will not bite into the metal unless it is in a vise and you work it like a smithy. The tip had a different profile as that of a samurai bu...
  40. Maybe it is for loping off foreskin....note the shape of the handle. Just kidding
  41. I think I enjoy finding all this stuff for you guys who collect. I keep it a while and change my theme. Of course , I have some things I have had for decades which any collector would love to have. My...
  42. SpiritBear, You better start building a barn! As much and as quick as you dig stuff out you will need room for the future. I wish I had all that I found as a young man. Ignorance and lack of space is ...
  43. How do you differentiate between makers when you spy this glass? I can not tell who is who unless there is a mark.
  44. The USS ones are the older ones. People collect certain cities and I have seen them go for $99.00.
  45. OOOOOoooooo insulators
  46. Trey, I'm getting there. I usually get a small collection of signs and someone will want to buy them or give me a truck or motorcycle for them and they get gone each time I try to collect.But I always...
  47. Oh yea, made by Ingram Richardson PA
  48. Looks like it went with tire rack display. I like it because it is not large as the others. Check out the one I recently found. It is a great little sign to have in your collection.
  49. It is certainly better than a short handled shovel. Any of you guys ever have a boss put you to work with a short handled shovel? Means he didn't like you.
  50. blunderbuss2, these tires were produced from the early teens to the twenties so they must have worked. As cars got heavier and faster I'm sure the design failed. Or else they would still be around. Th...
