    Hello All!

    I've been reading this forum for a few months now and just decided to join the discussion. I have a few interesting items and one piece of treasure I could use a little help with. I'll post the treasure tonight. It should be a great surprise for everyone.

    As a hobby, I do restorations, cleaning, carving, and other types of general craft. I'm currently working on some 100 year old clocks I recently acquired.

    I have a small collection of hand colored early photographs from the Alaskan gold rush and some later ones from Alaska aviation subjects.

    In general, though, I am a lover of history. The curiosity satisfied in antiquing is much more valuable, to me, than any monetary value. However, sometimes a dollar value can give you a good idea of how interested everyone else is in history, too. haha

    So, I'd like to thank you all for the wonderful reading. This is a pleasant forum. I also thank you in advance for your opinions and ideas on the items I will be sharing with you.
