    My kind of digs! Love the dog tag. Man one more year and the value goes up big time!

    The oldest one I've found is a 1896, I really get a charge out of finding them myself.

    Nice nabs. I was told by the collector who purchased my dog tags that the lower the number on the tag, yours being a 5, makes it more valuable too. Congrats.

    nice dog tag Giant! do you have a pic of your 1896 tag? I haven't broke into the 1800's with them. I've found two 1902's, I always get a charge out of finding them too.

    Real good finds, Congrats on that Old Dog Tag, Nice!

    I think the oldest one I've found is like 1962. Thats a real cool one. I take it there is an AntwerpMichigan, and that the tag isn't from Belgium

    Good luck,
    HH.

    Great finds Giant. I love the dog tag.....my oldest is 1957.
    I found that same Pompeian massage cream cover last summer. The Pompeian company was bought out by the Colgate Palmolive Pett company in 1927 and the massage cream was discontinued.

    HH
    The Pompeian Manufacturing Company began in a small drugstore on the outskirts of Cleveland, Ohio, in the late 19th century. Among its product line, the Pompeian Massage Cream was a favorite with barbers around the world - even though it was promoted to men and women alike.

    Pharmacist Fred W. Stecher, the son of a German immigrant, created the soothing after-shave massage cream in the back room of his small drugstore on the west side of Cleveland. But it was Otto F. Leopold, who after Stecher's death would become president of the company, who led the creation of its famous "Pompeian Beauty of the Year" contest. Film star Mary Pickford was one of the first Pompeian beauties to grace the advertisements of the company, and helped Leopold to become one of America's early cosmetic tycoons.

    Today the Pompeian Massage Cream jars, sample tins, ads and posters are considered collectable antiques
