#ZZZ006  - 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.

#BEADS0464 - Rare 16mm Deep Cobalt Glass Optimist International Intaglio - As low as $1 each
Vintage 16mm (.6") incised gold filled deep cobalt glass Optimist International intaglio. In our never ending quest to bring you the odd and unusual....  We couldn't find these anywhere else on the internet. It's a cool find. Flat gold foil back. These were hard to get a good picture of, but they are very high quality. West German. They are from around 1950. Pretty much never seen the light of day perfect condition.
 
Optimist International was formed in 1911 as a benevolent organization that helped their local communities and considered themselves to have a positive outlook in the face of all problems. It is one of the few of the old time fraternal organizations that has survived over the years. They are now heavily involved in modern issues such as Childhood cancer campaigns and even an internet safety program to ward off online predators. Older memorabilia like this is hard to find, and there are a lot of collectors out there.

#BEADSC0225 - Copper Wagon Charm with Moving Wheels
Vintage 1" wide copper plated wagon charm with moving wheels. These are unusual and uncommon. They are circa 1950 and unused. They show some very slight aging as do most metal charms. Metal charms are very scarce and desirable. These charms are one of those items we find a quantity of and think they will be around awhile. But, they will sell out before we know it. Metal charms just don't turn up often. Take advantage of this find.

This item is from our recent trip. We just returned with these and over 100 other items! We found two separate warehouses with beads, cameos, cabochons, charms, and other stuff that went as far back as the early 1900s. It was pretty amazing to find these old places, and very exciting!
