Chapter Fisher Body Craftsman's Guild Complete Paper Cutout for Petite Napoleon Coach
2 Chapter Fisher Body Craftsman's Guild Complete Paper Cutout for Petite Napoleon Coach
Detroit, michigan Fisher Body Craftaman's Guild No date stated Card pieces, paper envelope Very good condition in good envelope 
This is an interesting item, published for a contest which was advertised around the world. In the U.S. the kit was sent via the local newspapers, in this case the Detroit Times. Oddly, there is no year stated, so I did some research and found a 1932 Syracuse, New York newspaper story about the contest. Then envelope had many small tears, so I taped the edges to stabilize it. Inside here is a card about the contest itself, another one with intricate instructions and four large cards with many, many, many pieces to assemble. The sad part is, though not surprising, only boys were allowed to compete for college scholarships and money. Not only did they mention it, but they mentioned it many times. Even the application reads "Boy's Name." Nonetheless this project is a gem of paper engineering. The envelope measures 13-1/2" x 18-1/2" and all items fit inside. Take a look on Google and see the beautiful examples in full color.

CVA Mountain Rifle & Kit Promotion Materials (1977)
3 CVA Mountain Rifle & Kit Promotion Materials (1977)
Haddam, Connecticut Connecticut Valley Arms Inc. 1977/78 Fine condition 
Wow! This is a really nice find. Inside this envelope are many pristine, unused advertising products. The envelope was never mailed which is likely why everything inside is so perfect. The contents include the following: a letter to the dealer; a 1978 catalog replete with price sheet; a huge wall or window banner measuring 12" x 52"; and a counter card (10-1/2" x 14") affixed with a pad of tear-off coupons. None were used AND we have a second unused pad as well.

Colt Model O Armorer's Manual, No Author Stated
6 No Author Stated Colt Model O Armorer's Manual
Unknown Unknown 1995 Revised edition soft cover Very good 
I have never seen this booklet and am somewhat taken aback by its lack of publishing information. But this is a subject which is not often covered and there are numerous instructional drawings. Material covers scopes, O models, product features, external components, tool kit and supplies, inspection procedures, troubleshooting, disassembly and assembly for repair, general part fitting and care and maintenance. Booklet is simply made and measures 8-1.2" x 11" with 52 pages. Clean and bright inside and out. Only fault is a shadow from a small sticker affixed to front cover.

Postcard The Kit Kat Room Nelson Hotel Rockford, Illinois, Photo by Herzog
7 Photo by Herzog Postcard The Kit Kat Room Nelson Hotel Rockford, Illinois
Aurora, Missouri M. W.M. Date Unknown Very good condition 
Crisp and clean with just the tiniest spots of wear to upper corners. The Kit Kat with its Bohemian motif was a cocktail lounge inside the Nelson Hotel which was the largest in downtown Rockford, Illinois and conveniently adjacent to the theatre district. The blurb printed on back billed it as "Modern in every respect including dining rooms and an unusually attractive cocktail lounge." Card has not been used. Will arrive in brand new plastic sleeve.
