I posted this originally in the 18th Century section but thought it probably belonged here to showcase part of my display.

 

The items pictured range from the 1880's to 1890's.

 

Enjoy!

I'm sure Ken wishes he did!  An uncut example is one of the rarest things out there.

I agree Kurt, none of those in the inventory.  :unsure:

 

Here's an option if you really want one though:

Ken-

If you bid $12K, that should be enough to get it.  (Don't forget that 25% buyer premium though!)

HaHa...I need a handful more zeros in the bank account to justify it. Though, it's a great looking set.
