I have found collectibles various places. Last year I found a brass B-24 ashtray.
It was a great find, since I'm a B-24 guy. I found it at a booth a lady had for misc. items at an old car swap meet. She had it listed for $18.00 and I got her down to $15.00. I would have paid much more for it, but bargining is bargining.
The B-24 is an early model, patterned after that which was used early on by the British. There are no markings on it, and I left the original(as found) patina finish on it rather than attempting any polishing.
Needless to say I was as happy as a kid in a candy store
