Here is something that i wanted to share with y'all.
My girlfriend has been collecting pottery pieces from McCoy and other companies from the 30's -- 40's
We go out and antique usually on the weekends and this is what I found.

This McCoy "Uncle Sam's" hat with stars on it for $3.00 at an antique store last month.
That piece made me think of the "V" vase for victory that i had seen in the homefront books. (( I have always thought they looked so cool and wanted one for my collection. )) So, i looked on eBay and this "V" vase had a buy it now for $7.99 :w00t:
If you have tried to find one and didn't, this is why. I have seen very few on the market in the last 10 yrs.

Congrats !!!! .... After looking at the picture, It looks like a "pale yellow" or "celery green" color.
I don't think its white, even with the flash. If so, then it would match with the White wall. just my 2 cents

That is very cool! $3 and $7.99 are great prices for McCoy, regardless of subject! And anyone who collects 30s-50s anything knows that green is always the most sought-after color. :D Very cool vase and good find!!!!

NEW EDITION :
I Couldn't upgrade on the Big Daddy V VASE. So, i ADDED a Different Color.
I believe the Yellow is not seen as often as the red one.

Last picture is overall picture from collecting Homefront pieces.
