    Old Electric Iron

    I found this older iron...I'm guessing it's from around 1953 or so. It is in great condition, still works and the box looks awesome! There are no instructions inside, but I feel like it should be worth something...any ideas on the value?

    Steam and dry iron, CAT. NO. 189F40

    Thanks!!Click image for larger version.

    I found a thermos the other day, I'm guessing it too is from around the early 1950's or so.

    It too is in great condition, and yes, the box looks awesome!

    There are no instructions inside either.

    I did find though that if I put something cold in it, it stayed cold...and if I put something hot in it, it stayed hot...

    Kinda wonder how do it know...?



    Ok. I'll stop funning with ya...I think your are right about the age, but it probably has little value...maybe $10 or so...

    Could be wrong though...and it won't be the first time...

    It looks like its in original condition - having the bow is a huge deal

    I've seen these sell from $5 to $50 and some over priced at $70+

    Can you still buy iron on patches for blue jeans? When I was a kid, most of
    my blue jeans came as hand me downs from my cousins and all had patches on the knees.

    I used to wear my pants out in the knees at work and I used iron on patches too lol. Yes I think you can still buy them and they even come in camo colors. I used a patch last year on my favorite lightweight camo hunting jacket.

    I used a patch on my old canvas tent worked great but I dont think they make canvas tents anymore. I havent tried it on the new tent material yet but give me time.
