Fun thread.

Here's something I think no one here has since they only made 250 of them.

Colt "Custom Cobra"

Story? Is that a cartoon character?


It's supposed to be Dennis the Menace. It was a cup and bowl set.
I ordered it (with Mom's help) in the early sixties, and have managed to hold on to it somehow.

Three for one...

A Lyman Metal Products Turnpike Toll Gun. It fits three bucks or so in quarters in the handle. Back when tolls were vaugely reasonable you'd pull up, push the knob in and shoot a quarter or two into the basket and go. As it isn't semi auto I don't have to register it but I never put more than $2.50 in it.

Two boxes of obsolete cartridges:

Winchester .219 Zipper.

Remington .22 Jet CF Magnum

Maybe 35 years ago I was in the country somewhere, could have been PA, and I was in an antique store. There had been a massive flood there at one time and this insulator was from a power pole that had been knocked down. It was made by WhithallTatum Co. No. 1 (size i guess)

is that what that is we had one when I was a kid

Since Jack posted some nice WW II stuff, here is some more.

My Pops ID from WW II. Yes he was "one of those guys".

I love the valid date. He told me some stories but not too many.

Better pic of the shield. From what I hear it's rare to have them both. They were number matching.

Yankee class skeeter iceboat. I have been sailing iceboats since I was 10 years old, mostly on Mecox Bay in Southampton, but we travel to ice as well all over the northeast. I have had this boat over 80mph while a Piper Cub was flying alongside me.... eventually I pulled away from the Cub, he couldn't keep up. If anyone is intetested, several classes of iceboats are sailing the Long Island Championship this weekend on Lake Ronkonkoma, I wont be there... my boat is too big for that lake unfortunately.
