Calendar measures about 11 inches by 6 1/2 inches at the narrowest point, and is mounted on green matte board measuring about 11 7/8 inches by 7 3/4 inches.

Do you remember Boyd Hitchner’s Antique Shop on Tanner Street in Haddonfield.  Pretty sure I have the street correct.  It was a real through street then just off the King’s Highway, but now is closed off for walking, and if I remember correctly a Gazebo was built there.  I bought this item from Boyd in the late 70s or early 80s for $125.  He told me the value and rarity is in the statement “TELEPHONE DRUG STORE”  I lived in Haddonfield from 1976 until 1995 with my bookshop on Haddon Avenue from 1990 to 1995.  It is time for me to get this back  to where it belongs.  Thank you.

DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE — S&H BLACK 1859 COPPER PLATE

I have seen many versions and sizes of this plate. One example is about 6 by 6 inches and silvered except for the center medallion.  Others have the entire front silvered.  The example I am offering appears to have been silvered over the Declaration of Independence itself.  I have had it for years and enjoyed it, but am thinning out my collections.  It has always been in the frame I obtained it in, until now when I carefully pulled the nails out of the backing to pull the plate out to provide full images (and without glare from the glass).

Overall copper plate size measures about 7 1/4 inches by 8 1/8 inches with “rolled” under edges.  Note the original hangers on the rear.  Embossed is the full text of the Declaration of Independence, all 56 Signers’ signatures, and John Trumbull’s huge painting “Declaration of Independence” which is on display in the U.S. Capitol Rotunda.  It was Made by New York City electrotypist Samuel H. Black in 1859. In raised letters along the bottom edge of the plaque: “Entered According To Act of Congress, in the Year 1859 by S. H. Black in the Clerk’s Office of the District Court of the United States for the Southern District of New York.”

Below are all the images, which should not need further description, but feel free to ask any questions, thank you, RAY

STEAM BOAT LANDING
ROCKY POINT, R.I. – RHODE ISLAND
Ceramic Souvenir – 19th Century

Measures about 3 1/2 inches tall by 2 5/8 inches at top

Rocky Point Park was a highly popular amusement park on the Narragansett Bay side of Warwick, Rhode Island. It operated from the late 1840s until it closed in 1995. The following year, the park filed for bankruptcy.  Rocky Point Park was an idea first thought of by Captain William Winslow in the 1840s. By 1847, he had purchased a part of the land and began to offer amusements and serve dinner.

From the 1950s through the mid-1990s, Rocky Point Park was one of the most popular attractions in Rhode Island. It featured rides such as the Skyliner, Corkscrew Loop Roller Coaster, Log Flume, and the Freefall (similar to the identically named ride at Six Flags parks), which fell 13 stories at 55 mph (89 km/h). It also featured the Shore Dinner Hall, famous for its clamcakes, steamers, lobsters, and New England Clam Chowder, which seated over 4,000 patrons at a time.

When I lived in North Kingstown, RI, in the late 1970s I fondly remember visiting the park once. Always enjoying amusement parks I have had these two souvenirs for decades, but now they should go to another collector, hopefully back home to Rhode Island.

I am listing two souvenirs.  If you “win” both, I will make a shipping credit if I can ship both to the same address.  Want you to save your money so you can buy more things, not postage.

EARLY AUTOMOBILE TOPPER / WEATHERVANE / SIGN

Hard to describe.  This cast aluminum (? – assuming it is) early sporting pre-1915 looking roadster with folded down top was an item featured on AMERICAN PICKERS recently.  Mike was thrilled when he found this item mounted on a bracket which made it look like a weathervane.  But Mike’s example had faults !!! The one Mike found had the folded down top extension broken off, and the headlight chipped (as I recall).  Mike felt it was a weathervane and paid $150 for it, later evaluating and pricing it at $225.

Mine has NO FAULTS.  My Dad purchased this item in the mid 1950s, and mounted it on top of our rural delivery mail box.  And there it sat for years.  So, I can attest that it is 60 years old.

Easy to use for the same purpose, as a sign for your automobile collection, a weathervane as Mike on AMERICAN PICKERS stated, or it could be even used as a mold for your reproducing this item to make a great deal of money.

Overall dimensions about 14 1/2 inches wide and about 7 inches tall

I have fond memories of this, but cannot keep everything.  Time for someone else to enjoy!
