Re: WW I Snead Victory Lamp- Morgan Explosion

So the dust has settled on poorly restored Victory lamps. Time to switch subjects. Here is a very interesting new version of a" Victory" ashtray . While in poor condition, it sold fast. I made an offer and in the time that elapsed to get a reply, a lucky buyer paid the full BUY IT NOW price. I think...

Re: They Shall Not Grow Old

Yep, its out on normal DVD and blue ray. It has a very interesting second section on its production and restoration of the old films in the DVD. A great restoration of film that was thought lost due to condition or speeds. A true work of art and preservation. Yes, it starts out with faded,fast/slow ...

1898 1st Inf., Nat. Gd. Mo. Span Am photo

I found this at an antique store, a photo by C. L. Chester listed as in Saint Louis, Missouri. It was mounted on grey cardboard that is in a some what beat condition with some water stains and broken corners on the grey background board the photo is mounted on, so I reframed it. This is dated 1898, ...

Re: start of gun show season

Ours were bowing alley shows in small town WI. Never did sell the rifle. Sunday's show had a Packer game at noon and while it opened at 0800, it was a ghost town and only 15 sellers showed up with a total of 62 people entering by noon when it shut down. :roll: :lol: The weather is still too nice and...

start of gun show season

Today is the start of the gunshot season. Sept. is here. I will see if I can dump a duplicate Turk & its bayonet for $325 to a sucker with way too much cash so I can buy some military photos at a local antique store. People like old bolt actions. Next week is another, so it seems just about every we...

Pa now has 35 reviews; more magazine problems... Steven indicates some interesting points: Things I would have changed: I purchased the imitation wood.
