This 1955 fishing license was issued to a man from Parma, Ohio off to Canada on an "angling vacation." The license is a small booklet which contains pertinent details about the issuee, as well as Ontario "fishery regulations" and info on the Game and Fisheries Act. It shows browning on both front and back covers, as well as a loss of the top layer of paper at the bottom back corner (small). All fishing coupons are still intact, so Mr. Martin must not have been too lucky.... View more info

This one's a cross between a newspaper and a magazine. Retains the newspaper look, but the paper itself is much more substantial which is why it looks so nice. This is NOT the publication of the same name issued by Andy Palmer of Michigan. This one is harder to find and came from Ohio, though Palmer's is getting to be scarce too. The magazine measures 12"x18" and has 12 pages of dense text. It's clean, crisp and bright with just some light toning to edges at spots and d... View more info

Condition: Good-plus


Magazine has been cleaned by me and a short area at top of spine has been repaired, also by me, with almost invisible archival tape to keep it from worsening. There is still some soil to cover, but overall this is a nice, tightly bound piece. It's a large one too measuring 9"x12". The big story to me was the launch of the first muzzleloading shooting matches at Portsmouth, Ohio, an event which also launched the rebirth of shooting black powder firearms as a sport. Other ...

Very uncommon trade catalog and very graphically appealing. It's clean inside and out with just light wear to edges of cover.

I love this card! A young couple is caught kissing in the woods while both rifles are leaning against a fence -- though the young lady IS holding on to hers! The card is postmarked Akron, Ohio and was written on the divided back on September 6, 1910 by a hunter! His message reads, "Arrival all OK, but have not been hunting yet." It was sent to Lorain, Ohio. Card will arrive in brand new plastic sleeve. View more info

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. View more info

The catalog measures 7-1/4" x 10-1/4" with 30 pages. Not often seen. View more info
