  1. Expo at night was just magical!

    Magnificent. Great colors. Time exposure?
  2. Dumont Duoscopic 1954 Split Screen TV

    Does this thing prevent arguments - or start them? This sounds like one of Ralph Cramden's schemes...you know, like glow in the dark wallpaper....
  3. Hi All, While moving some thing to get at other things. I noticed one of my very 1939 NYWF few blocks had separated at the weld seam as mentioned above. This block is now in two even halves, both unbroken and original with no further condition problems. As one can now clean the interior of its original cloudiness, it will display better than its brother in D.C. and the other I know of in a private collection. I would be interested in selling this block to a collector, either the full item or one half - which will make a wonderful display surface! Shipping is costly for such a heavy item - perhaps local pickup? Maybe at the QM? Photostream of show and one of the blocks: http://www.flickr.com/photos/nationalbuildingmuseum/5961842092/in/photostream/ The color photo of the U.S. Steel Building is from our Bill Cotter. There are other photographs in that stream as well. There is a member here who has a block just like this in his impressive collection. Anyone looking to own a bit of 1939, please drop me a line at magikbilly@yahoo.com Best always, Eric

    Happy Merry Wonderful Everything to ALL!
  5. Suppose we did get a time machine...

    Hello Expo, Thanks - glad you liked it. Been very busy - sorry for the delay. The name you mentioned doesn't ring a bell but I stopped dealing with coins over 10 years ago. I did not like the game etc with TPG and so on. Heck, I remember when Select was 63 and Choice was 65 - once adjectives started sliding I started not liking things but that was truly ages ago. Happy Holidays! Eric
  6. Suppose we did get a time machine...

    Hello Expoboy, I am not so sure there is one! I have not seen a true Cameo, full frosted sun, on any Walker! Let alone DCam. In 1936 there was difficulty in even getting the finish brilliant. I am sure there are some in the registry but I have not been there since I had the top set of Type Dimes, and that was a very long time ago! I don't even have any scans saved. All I could find was this Pr 63 1906 Dr. Benson 10C I used to own. I bought it with the first photo shown, but B4 that I went and found online a Goldberg photo from back in the day and it was concentric colors city so I picked it up. It was just the same in hand as shown in the second photo. It was Goldberg's originally. This one was not wiped by the good Dr. Low mintage - 675. When I had it and the set there were 35 known and graded. Now? I have no idea. I bought this date because it shot me up in the Registry - a game I would not bother with anymore. I'll try to find images of my 10C set. The 1941 Pr65 10C was also rainbow toned strongly, and the Seated was deep purple as if from storage in leather. From the toning this Barber was in a cabinet. Do you collect Proof material Expoboy? Eric
  7. Suppose we did get a time machine...

    I would buy as many original 1936-1942 Proof sets as possible with an eye for frost - there has to be some Cameo Walking Lib 50C out there. Earlier Proof singles like Cameo Proof Barber or Seated material would be next and the rest in silver - halves in bulk at face. Oh, and gold. Early copper cents in high grade might also be a good thing!
  8. So much for the polls

    Hmm. My slides have portraits of both candidates by the meter?
  9. Homemade Stereo Views

    Hello, Here is one of mine - a little earlier. It is one of a two sided card. Mauretania under construction, Swan's Yards, Wallsend on Tyne, April 1907. I have about 5 of thses from 1905-1913.
  10. Truly.....The Dawn of a New Day

    I am sorry to say I must cancel this little walk :( Sincere apologies.
  11. A reference to Moses?

    Agreed - sort of Bikini Atoll meets Nathan's Coney Island. Well, there's a 39WF tie in anyway. What was the name of the fountain of th - remember The Fountain of the Atom with those playful Electrons om the Bowling Green? Those little angels or whatever holding the hot dog made me think of those. Great sculpture and those Electrons exist - as fired ceramic they are unchanged, just like the tiles deep inside Titanic's Turkish Bath.
  12. A reference to Moses?

    I wonder - I mean, the park in this cartoon appears well kept and the..structure seems maintained.
