That's right, only 10¢ each. Super Bargain!!!! Vintage lot of 100 all different magazine clippings/covers/articles from the 1910s, 1920s, 1930s, 1940s, 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s. A large percentage are from movie magazines. All are famous stars of their day. A pretty good split across all time periods with a little more from the 1940s and 50s. Almost all are illustrated and vary in size from 2" to 12" tall. No two alike and you will get clippings from 100 different famous people. The condition varies tremendously. Many have rough edges and paper aging. Some don't. They would be incredible for decoupage, scrapbooking, or resale. If you order multiple lots, they will be completely different. Every lot has some stuff from the silent movie era. They came from a collector, so there are many interesting pieces.

#ZZZ009 - Huge Universal Medicine Company Price List
Long list of 70 different medicinal products. The list describes the item, and the price (e.g. Universal Alps Bitters were listed for $14/dozen with a retail price of $1.75). This appears to be a fairly early piece (circa 1910), and lists many interesting items including Balsams, Elixirs, Remedies, Regulators, Pain expellers, Liniments, etc. They are 17” long and look great framed. Found in the remains of the Universal Medicine Co. in Chicago. Just the top part pictured. These are very large.
#CC031 - 1960 Coca Cola Blotter with Giant Bottle
Vintage Coke blotter from an old Coke Plant. Dated 1960. This version that says over 60 million a day is not real common. Nice condition. We just bought part of a huge collection of Coke items. These were part of the lot. The fellow that had this stuff is a friend who searched old bottling plants and hauled most of this stuff out many years ago.

#ZZZ021 - 1870s Checks from 1st National Bank of Cooperstown, NY
Vintage checks from Cooperstown where the Baseball Hall of fame resides. These are very early ones from the 1870s that features the picture of James Fenimore Cooper statue that says "Leather Stocking". A collector kindly offered these to us. I was happy to get them at first, but didn't realize till I research them a little more how good they were. Cooperstown checks from this time period are very hard to find and can go for big money. The ones from the 1890s to 1910s are common, but the ones from the 1870s like this go for a lot more.

You get 8 different invoices for $4 (that is 50¢ each). Vintage dated 1940s invoices that were found in the Brockmeyer Co. warehouse in St. Louis. These are invoices (bills) from Tobacco companies that were sent to Brockmeyer. There are many famous companies in the mix and all have nice letterheads with company logos. They are fun to look at because they have the products listed. For example, i am looking at a United States Tobacco invoices showing where they bought 18 cases of Copenhagen dime tobacco. They are used of course and have typical aging, bends, and folds. We pitched the ones that were damaged, so they are all pretty nice.
#ZZZ020 - 1947 Chicago, Burlington & Quincy Railroad Check
Vintage 1947 C. B. & O.Q. R. R. Co. Checks. These all look to be settlement checks. For example, this one has printed at the bottom "Settlement account injuries sustained on or about Dec 15, 1946..... while employed as a blacksmith" and was to Demeter Borst for $5. They are all similar
#ZZZ056 - Early Cleveland Bottling Works Check

These are all from around 1930 which if pretty old for the Cleveland plant. We just bought part of a huge collection of Coke items. These were part of the lot too. The fellow that had this stuff is a friend who searched old bottling plants and hauled most of this stuff out many years ago.
ZZCA032 - Frisco Railway Letterhead
Vintage 7" tall notepad sheets with brightly colored Frisco Railway letterhead. The Frisco is a defunct U.S. railroad that operated in the Midwest and South Central U.S. from 1876 to 1980. These are an interesting story. This summer we took a vacation in Branson, MO and heard stories of a fellow who had gotten lots of stuff out of the old Frisco Railway depot when in closed around 1980. We never did find the fellow, but one of the local antique dealers had this stack of letterhead that he got from the fellow we never found. It was in an old string tied bundle that looked pretty beat up, but much to our amazement the sheets were like new when we got down below the first three or four. I'm not sure of the exact date as from what I've been able to look up there were many types of Frisco trains, but I'm guessing from the style of the one in the picture that they are probably from the 1950s.
#ZZZ024 - 48 Star Paper Flag on a Wooden Stick
Vintage paper 48 star flag on a 3" stick. These are unused old stock in nice shape. Some paper aging. On July 4, 1912, the U.S. flag grew to 48 stars. It was the official flag for 47 years all the way up till 1959. So these go back to at least the 1950s. The box they were in looks much older.
#ZZZ053 - Sheet of Reading Beer Notepad Letterhead
