Hi, I purchased this book at a local auction house a while back and I think it is a soldier's  scrapbook. Today I started reading it more trying to see if therewea a name in it and boy it is very strange.  There seems to be a lot with numerology and Scripture is this normal for one of these type books?  Is it a Soldier's scrapbook or something else?  Thank you!

Hi guys! I'm new around here, and I know absolutely nothing about this type of stuff...not even sure what category they would fit into - stamps? Ephemera? I was digging around in the bottom of an old box of stuff, and I came across these old envelopes.

 

One of them appears to be from 1835. The rest are all 19th century it seems. Some of them appear to have slogans and pictures on them. I did a little research on one of them, and I think it's addressed to Senator John W. Denver from Congressman Randall L. Gibson in the year both of them died - 1892. None of them have their actual letters still in them.

 

I honestly don't know what to make of them. I'd like to display them somehow, but I don't want to do that if they're valuable as they're fairly fragile. Does anyone know much about this kind of thing? Your assistance is much appreciated!!

Signature on Cloisonne , Chinese I think .

Hello Folks,

I recently purchased 2 Griswold No. 18 muffin pans.  Although they are the same "model", the markings on each are quite different. 

The first muffin pan is made of thinner cast iron than the other.  The top handle is marked "GRISWOLD'S" and the bottom handle is marked "ERIE NO 18".  The bottom side of the lower handle is marked "6141".  There are no other markings.

The second muffin pan has no markings on the top side, but the bottom of each muffin cup has markings that include "No.", "18", "GRISWOLD", "ERIE PA.", "U. S. A.", and "6141".  The cast iron of this pan is heavier than the other one.

I presume that the first muffin pan is the earlier one of the two.  I've read that there are named variations for this #18 pan.  I don't have the Griswold Muffin Pan book, but I was hoping someone reading this thread might have a copy.  Specifically, I was interested in knowing which variations these pans are and when they were likely manufactured.

Any knowledgeable Griswold collectors out there who might be willing to assist?  Thanks in advance!

I have an object to sell that needs an ID. It is pictured below. It is hand-carved hardwood with a wooden spool of thread and a heart shaped carved opening. Any help will be appreciated.

Does anyone recognize these uniforms. All from same album/family. The 2 young guys are from Salem, MA. and on back states Class of '83 and Class of '84, Capt. Petier from Troy, NY and the other 3 are from New York City. Are these fraternal? Or maybe Cavalry from the 1870's - 1880's? See attached pics. Anyone recognize them, let me know. Thanks in advance!!
