This Lithograph on cardboard was printed in the USA by Niagara Lithography Company."The Rest-Pause that Refreshes"This Lithograph featurs 3 beautiful young women from the Women's Army Corps who are all holding their Coke Bottles. How did the poster get the holes?Our client's father worked at a Coca-Cola plant during the early 1950s, he found a few of these posters and brought them home to cover the ceiling in the new garage. They were used face up on the rafters, so the images were protected from sunlight, the color is good but it does have a number of holes in it from mounting.Please see the photos, this is the exact poster you will receive when you win.
C1917 Kaiserliche Marine WWI Imperial German Navy 8-Day U-Boat Ship Bulkhead Clock Gustav Becker NR (No Reserve Price, this clock will sell to the highest bidder!)Excellent Running Condition, the Gustav Becker movement runs like a top and keeps accurate time.This RARE Gustav Becker Clock made in late 1917 or early 1918 does not have the face plate signed by the distributor, which is really rare, usually when the distributer delivered these clocks to the Imperial German Navy they would have put there name on the front, the 9 big clock companies were: Peters, Happe, Schuchmann, Tietz, Staebe, Czapp, Wegner, Schnoor or Kophamel, usually located in Kiel or Silesia (Poland).It has the original black paint on it which is also very desirable, you see people have cleaned and polished most of these back to the brass.The Gustav Becker movement, with serial number 2331714, has the Freiburg mark, dating the movement back to 1883-1885.The clock face has Roman Numerals, the imperial crown over the M, Kaiserliche Marine, with the number 4877 on the right side. There is a seconds dial & hand, the seconds hand is a replacement. The larger minute and hour hands are original. There is a fast/slow lever above 12. It is a single winding arbour.The clock is mounted on a piece of wood that is 9 3/4" inches in diameter.Weight: 7.3 lbs It has a 6" inch face and is 3 1/2" inches deep, with a double winding mechanism, a seconds dial.The glass has been replaced, but they did not use beveled glass, one screw is missing on the rim and a couple aren't in all of the way, the seal does not fully close around the bezel like it should, which keeps the lock from fully closing too, I think it is all related to the wrong glass. All of the numbers on the brass case match, they are all stamped "69" on the both parts of latch, and the bezel. In a photo you can see a repair job done on the bezel where it attaches the the rest of the brass case, probably related to the wrong glass as well.Please see the photos, this is the exact clock you will receive when you win.
