Re: Garand found locally. Educate me, please.

There were/are good and bad Blue Sky imports. There are reports that the blue sky stamping was done so hard it compressed/damaged the barrels. Then some done with no damage. All this is second hand from various postings I've read over the years.

Re: Gun Broker jerks

Sometimes people comment to give you correct information. It's easier to sell something at times when it's correctly labeled. Just my 2 cents..........LOL!

Re: 1908 Bronze ashtray ID request

BINGO , the VI is a "W". I think you got it. The letters are W Then N, D, A. And my farm boy that threw it out into the dump may have been the local Lomillers druggist back in the 1900-1940 time period. I will have to check the 1900 & 1930 plat book for the farm name and look into my Meno. Falls hi...

Re: 1908 Bronze ashtray ID request

Just a note the National Wholesale Druggists' Association or NWDA, was organized/established in 1876.

ETA: Definitely has that Art Nouveau look, and 1908 would place it during that period.

Panama City, Florida looks like a war zone, with the storm itself and all the tornadoes it spurn we are fortunate to be alive. Even though the house is standing it's looking like...

I like the Disturbed cover. 'Course Simon and Garfunkel are hard to beat, and their version was just one guitar and two voices. That's pretty impressive for such an iconic song.

The Disturbed version is powerful, amazing how they transformed the song.
