    Okay you got me! The collection would be relegated to a corner of some room and I would still worship the ground she walked upon! Lol!

    My favorite quote is by pinup artist Alberto Vargas - “What’s more beautiful than a beautiful girl?”

    Edward, she certainly is a most beguiling beauty, but even if you could get your hands onto that time machine, you need to work on a plan to get her to worship the ground you walk on. Could be tricky. Unrequited love seldom ends well.

    Got this original ID wallet with two period photos inside of it from 1944 of S/SGT Jay R. Magee of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma (a good sense of humor too! *see back of photo)
    I haven’t been able to find info on him...

    Just received this. I’ve never seen this water slide decal before. Silver in color. Same instructions on the reverse side as the standard A-2 decals and dated ‘44

    This particular mark dates it between 1935 and 1949

    Thanks. Well they don’t say Willsonite they say Willson on the frames but they’re good enough for my display… I’ve since acquired other glasses and 1940s Bausch & Lomb in the original case with paperwork.

    Willsonite this is a civil model-trademark of Willson. Willson made AN6531 , they look just like your beautiful Bausch & Lomb, only without branded bends-brackets like from Bausch & Lomb.
