That is a nice piece. I like the date on it also.

I can't remember for the life of me where I got that from. It was packed away with some stuff that I haven't looked at in about 10 years.

I never get rid of anything. Well, I have been cleaning out the garage and getting rid of true junk. I don't really know what stuff is worth. I kind of just decide wether it is worth me keeping, or just tossing it.

I found my mint Popular Mechanics magazines yesterday. They are from the 50's.

Anyone need a pile of Field and Streams?

I have one also, I think I got it from a rep about 15 - 20 years ago. Are these things still around?
