  1. ✅ SOLVED Need help identifying this brass piece

    This was found in woods just a few feet from a pre- CW B&Burnham button. Immediately I thought it was a bridal rosette but upon closer inspection of the back of it, their is only the remnant of what looks like a single post coming from the center. I included the B&Burnham button I found in...
  2. Bean field marble

    It looks damaged to me. I would not think a pontil would be that rough but then again, I don't know a bunch about marbles. It was found while detecting a bean field and while my buddy was busy finding large cents and 2 centers:BangHead: Just wondering if this is anything worth holding onto or...
  3. Ebay/paypal costs

    Can someone direct me on how to find the ebay and paypal fee's for each sale. On Paypal I only see ebay costs per month and no paypal charges are shown.
  4. case closed

    I posted awhile back that I had a case opened against me for a tape player that he claimed was not working. After not replying to my message asking him how I can rectify this for him, he has now closed the case and sent a message saying not to worry that he will get a new belt for it and if that...
  5. lures pics

    I don't know why I could not put the pics on the first post I made about these lures but I am going to try here again with a new post. Again, I overpaid for these but I was wondering if anyone can help me with the small red one. It has a faded name on top that is hard to make out. I can make out...
  6. Fishing Lures

    I jumped the gun on these lures today. Overpaid for them judging by what I have seen so far. I thought the Millsite Wig Wag floater would have been a good one but it looks like it might bring 2 bucks on a good day. I paid 7.50. the hula popper I got because it felt like wood. I knew plastic ones...
  7. Recommended for block list?

    I was thinking that since most who visit this ebay sub-forum sell on ebay at some level, it would be nice to have a sticky that we can list unscrupulous buyers on and categorize them by state. This way, if anyone else chooses to trust the person who feels a buyer deserved to be on their block...
  8. My first case

    So I sold a vintage tape player/recorder that was tested and worked fine and was in like new condition. Today a case was opened and the buyer who buys a lot of electronic equipment tells me it was not as described because it ate one of his tapes. He said he could replace the belt that costs 15...
  9. Griswold repro.

    Boy, I thought I had finally found me a Griswold! I'll admit I had no idea there were repro's out there. Live and learn. If there are any others out there who don't know what to look for, let me enlighten you. I learned that if it does not say "Erie" on it, beware. Also, bright orange rust...
  10. First sale

    I just made my first sale. Is there a way other than contacting the buyer to get their shipping info? I did send a message to him to get that but was thinking there should be a way to do that without contacting them. ??
  11. Let E-Bay choose shipping?

    I let E-Bay choose the shipping on an auction I just listed. The item weighs 5 pounds rounded up. Would like to hear the pro's and con's from the pro's . Also my item is in it's original box and it is too large to fit in a large flat rate box. It is 8'' x8'' x 14'' How would you guys ship this?
  12. some finds from the weekend

    I hit an estate sale and got most of this stuff and got the cutting knife from a subdivision sale. Going to keep the hammer handle and the cutting knife, the rest I plan on trying to sell. Trying being the key word. Sears immersible percolator never used with tags and box and papers ($12.00)...
  13. garage sale finds

    I picked up a couple of pc's. for 3 bucks each. The petal green is made by the Mount Clemens Pottery Co. here in Michigan and the other is a Warwick Dakota pattern. As far as I can tell, these are both about 1930's era. The last piece is a mystery. I am guessing it is a clay tea server. It has...
  14. My first Ebay listing

    Superscope by Marantz Condenser Microphone | eBay I would really appreciate it if some of you could take a look at my very first ebay listing. I chose to offer free shipping to the United States but I could not figure out how to exclude Alaska and Hawaii from U.S. shipping. I offered to sell...
  15. Shipping prices

    I am just thinking about trying to sell on eBay and the only thing I have questions about before I start is the shipping prices. How do you guys know how much to put as a shipping price? I see most experienced eBayers recommend getting a scale. That will give me the weight of the item but then...
  16. A few marbles

    Going through some of my finds I found a few marbles scattered about. Not sure which ones I have dug but I don't think all of these are. Anyway, I know nothing about marbles and figured I would post them here in case I have a diamond in the rough, which I seriously doubt. Come on spring time.
  17. frog in the corn

    I was out looking at my garden the other day and this tiny little guy was sitting on one of the leafs of a corn stalk about 3 feet off the ground. Since I have beetles eating my bean leaves which by the way are planted to run up the corn, I suspect he climbed up there for a meal. Pretty neat.
  18. Rocking chair find

    Hello, I think this is my first time posting in the garage sale section. I purchased this for 5 bucks a couple months ago for something to sit on the porch. After checking on E-Bay, I found these going for 100-125 bucks....now thinking instead of sitting in it, I should try to sell it....lol.
  19. ✅ SOLVED Bridle bit and a ?

    I found this old bit at a site where I had found the old spoon and brass cup that I posted here awhile back. My question on the bit is does anyone have any idea how old this type is? The other item I'm not sure of. It reminds me of some type of mirror that would be mounted on the outside...
  20. cup and a spoon

    Hi, I was scouting a new spot with a buddy today where an old house used to sit. I think the house was tore down back in the 70's and fill dirt had been brought in. Some interesting pc's. did pop up though. This spoon which appears to be brass says what I think is Marshall Silver on it. I can't...
