Very cool ashtray from the famous Copacabana nightclub. Very historic nightclub was the place to be in its heydays of the 1940's and 1950's. Endless stories with celebrities and mafia connections. Great piece of history. As with all my stuff I don't clean it to make it look pretty, I just leave it like I find it.

It makes me feel old to call 1980's vintage but I think it works with this one which just off the chart on the Richter Scale of coolness. The jacket is typical 80's Levi and the entire thing is covered in superb artwork, patches and pins. Just as proof that our man here was well rounded the right sleeve has a long Metallica patch and the left side of the back has three smaller patches. Everything else is all K.I.S.S. and the hand done portrait work on the back is fabulous (Image 2)...

Super cool rocket ship bank from the 1950's. This was given out by Equitable Security Trust Company in Wilmongton Delaware. The labels are a bit rubbed out (See photos) but otherwise nice original finish with mild age wear. Great look throughout and really screams 1950's. Mechanism is a little codgity but does work; A spot of oil would probably do wonders.

Interesting old cue stick trimmer. Basically this is meant to square off a cue stick if a new tip is being put on. Good shape and would probably work just fine if the blade is sharpened a bit. Sort of works like a giant pencil sharpener but with the blade positioned to flatten instead of sharpen. A little over 5 inches total length. Cool billiard related antique to have sitting around the pool room for conversation purposes. I think this dates to right around 1900.

Very nice named British Life Saving Medal. RLSS bar coincides with medal obverse that reads 'ROYAL LIFE SAVING SOCIETY ESTABLISHED 1891' and shows a sea rescue in process. The reverse reads 'AWARDED TO' and is engraved with the name 'M. S. COSSETT AUG 1926'. Around the edge of the obverse is Latin, probably the society slogan. The second bar is the date 1933, probably when the award was presented. Both bars are on the original ribbon which is usually long gone...

old walrus tusk with strange billiken carving. While usually represented as a smiling cherub type creature this face is more haunting and menacing. It is also less invasivly carved into the tusk which otherwise keeps its natural shape. A little bit around the back side and below the face is a signature or maker mark. A hole at the smoothed off base indicates that this was once mounted on something. Very interesting piece. Just under nine inches in length.

Very cool pair of Marx Toys helmets. These are doughboy style but WWII vintage. These are red and I think there is a silver version also. Terrific condition when one looks at what is usually offered for sale. These were toys in every sense of the word and after spending years battling in neighborhood backyards the condition usually suffers significantly. These have good shape and excellent remaining paint. The first one shown in detail is complete with a nice strong decal...

Very cool tortoise shell style Bakelite goggles. Shown here with my personal assistant Betty who hasn't complained about anything in years. I have seen many various ages assigned to these but I think they are 19040's to early 1950's but are currently very much in fashion with "steampunk" style...

Neat stickpin with a bubble containing real, natural gold flakes. Probably not enough there to retire on but it is a good conversation piece for sure. I do not believe the pin outside of the bubble is gold.

This is a very interesting armored car cigarette lighter that does look to be WWII vintage or earlier. At 13.5 ounces and almost 5 inches long this is not designed to be carried around in a pocket; Rather it is meant to be left on one's desk as an interesting conversation piece with visitors. There are so many different types of armored cars that vary so little in appearance that, with inaccuracies of a small object like this, I can not tell nationality. Could be Japanese or it could be British...

Lovely hand tooled leather belt and holster sized for a big guy. Both pieces match and display very detailed two tone work. The holster is professional quality with lower ties and top loop for firearm and has smooth lines throughout. Belt has loops for 28 rounds. Belt is marked as being made in Mexico with the numbers 44 45 and 48. I assume that this means it is optimally sized for a 45 but can fit from 44 to 48 and my measurements seem to agree with that...

Yeah, just because everyone should have a ray gun. Nice vintage toy. Does have a separation along its seam on the top but which turns off of the seam and becomes a crack on the bottom. It is basically invisible if pushed together so certainly repairable. Priced accordingly. When the trigger is pulled there is something that spins on the inside that makes sparks and a crackling kind of zap sound. The ray that shoots out must be disabled because I used this on my family with no significant results...

This might be the greatest country on earth but that does not mean we don't periodically do stupid things. For example, Prohibition which made recreational alcohol consumption illegal thus opening the door for the antics of guys like Al Capone. It rarely works out when one tries to impose their morality on others. Prohibition began in 1920. This medal is for a delegate to the Atlantic City NJ Prohibition National Convention of 1912 when this movement was gathering steam. When seeking prohibition...

Very cool feldpost document stamper. The last photo is the actual imprint given. "Dienststelle der feldpost Nr 59 645B". It looks like this was used first in 1943 by Staff and Companies 1-4 of Reserve Panzer Grenadier Battalion 215 which was destroyed in 1944. In June of 1944 this feldpost designation was used by Staff and 1st Battalion Panzer Grenadier Regiment II, also destroyed 1944. Clearly this stamper was bad luck. Very neat, very real item.

Soft leather holster for a Walther P38. In good, original condition except for the addition of the rawhide strap that has the look of a veteran add on. Markings on back are not pressed on very hard so difficult to make out. Code looks like DKB but last letter is super faint. Below that is a "44" and what looks like a light waffenamt. Honest example.

"Remember the Maine" became the battle cry for the United States during the Spanish American war in 1898. Hostilities broke out after the explosion of the Maine in Havana harbor. Apparently the old slogan "Remember the Alamo was deemed to have been successful enough for a retread. This change purse was a product of that time "fad". The buff leather is worn (As buff leather well over 100 years old tends to do) but there are no tears and the leather remains quite soft and pliant despite age. Ther...

Old pipe cases. Lot of 2. Hinges and snaps work but other cosmetic damage. I hope this price is cheap enough.
