This catalog is dedicated to the memory of Zane Shaffer. He was a pioneer in this field who recently left us. A lot of you have likely crossed paths with him. He was, arguably, the largest dealer in our type of merchandise on the East Coast. His family sold us a large lot of his inventory with the hope that his items will find good homes with people who appreciate them. You will see a lot of them over the next year or so, and we will mark them as such. Here is a note from his family "Whether he was gettin' his road warrior on traveling to antique markets in places like Shupp's Grove or buying/selling online, he enjoyed every minute of it. He held a very special place in his heart for the people, the places, and 'the old things'. It's really good to know that his collection will reach all the folks that had the same passion about them. We truly hope you enjoy them as much as he did."

#SIGN111 - Rare Early MWA (Modern Woodmen of America) Paper Flag on Pin

Vintage 2" wide paper flag on metal pin for the Modern Woodmen of America. The Modern Woodmen of America is one of the largest fraternal benefit societies in the United States. It was formed in January of 1883 at the by Joseph Cullen in Lyons Iowa. The original group only accepted "white males" between the ages of 18-45, and only in what they considered to be the 12 "healthiest" states. You were not allowed to be from a large city either.  Certain professions were prohibited too. This strange fraternal created a large life insurance provider over the years including investments and banking. The organization itself is still a tax-exempt fraternal benefit society. These are very early and came out of a factory that made silks and flags many years ago. Based on the master boxes, I'd say they are from the early 1900s. As far as we can tell, these are the only examples known.  They say "MWA" and have the society logo on them with an axe and gavel. The flags are paper with some aging, and the pins have a little light rust, but these are in amazing condition for their age. There was not a big bunch of these found and we have all of them, so we would suggest ordering early.


#SIGN170 - Rare Early B.P.O.E. Elks Lodge "Hello Bill" Flag Pin - As low as $1 each

Click the picture to see a larger more detailed image. Vintage 2" long paper flag on a 2 1/2" wide metal pin for the B.P.O.E. Elks with the traditional "Hello Bill" greeting. The greeting started in 1897 at the Elks National Reunion in Minneapolis, and these are from around that time period. Back in the day, when a visitor came, they told them to go talk to Brother Billy Goddard which is how it all started. From there it spread to Elk lodges all over the country where it has become a traditional greeting. These early ones are very rare and in great shape for their age.

#TY554 - Crystal Eye Mrs. Santa Claus Doll Mask
These were part of a fad in the 1960s and 1970s.  Kleenex had a promotion where you sent away for parts like this and they showed you how to make a doll. This one was just the head. There were several variations. People used this one to make Mrs. Santa Claus. These heads are about 4" tall and made of a rubbery plastic material that is bendable. The eyes are three dimensional plastic and sparkly (the carton they were in said doll masks with crystal eyes). I found them sealed in their original cellophane wrapping and they are in excellent like new condition. I'm sure you doll collectors out there will know more about these. We just found these in a warehouse very near here we have been trying to get in for 20 years!

#ZL200 - Rare Heinle's Jockey Club Carbonated Root Beer Label with Racehorse - As low as $1 each
Click the picture to see a larger image. Here is an unusual and rare soda label. They are 4 1/2" wide and say "Heinle's Jockey Club Carbonated Root Beer" on them. Really nice image of a jockey on a leaping racehorse. These are the only examples we have ever seen. Heinle's was a Hires competitor back in the 1800s and sold extract and bottled root beer. In 1913, they were taken to court for violation of the Pure Food and Drug Act, and from what I can tell were out of business by 1915. These labels are likely from somewhere between 1900 and 1910. They were located at the Chas. L. Heinle & Co. building at 2731 Kensington Ave, Philadelphia, PA. They came from the estate of a long time dealer in Wisconsin. We would normally price these much higher because none of the root beer collectors have them, but we bought them right, so we are passing a great price on to you. These labels are in excellent unused condition for their age.
