Bob, I think the CIA installed a tracking device on my computer. It crashed and re-booted twice while attempting to read the full article on the Sheahan family of Nevada.

A fun read, that newsletter reminds me too much of dealing the the general population in retail.

I have dealt with Abby for more years than I can remember.

They sell reproductions of vintage catalogs, pamphlets, and brochures sent to them by collectors and admirers mostly free gratis. Then she sends them back the originals unharmed. They do all the legal work before they are offered for sale. Much of this is available nowhere else and are gold to collectors.

Her monthly newsletter is something that I always look forward to.

She also has a sense of humor.

We have sold catalogs to people in thirty-two countries and now can make fools of ourselves in half the word's languages. We answer an average of twenty-five specific questions a day and a lot of non-specific ones such as "I have a wooden bar-bell thing, what is it?" We regularly field questions and requests from collectors of guns, ammunition, decoys, knives, tools, glass balls, bottles, skates, dog collars, whistles, folding boats sleeping bags, hats, folding metal targets and even plumb bobs. A major New York fashion designer ordered a whole box of old catalogs featuring outdoor clothing he could copy (we are still waiting to get paid)!

Lots of calls we get are from people who have a gun and want to know how much it is worth, sort of like Antiques Roadshow. Naturally, it is almost impossible to appraise a gun on the phone. One recent conversation ended something like this, "Bob, go to a national chain bookstore and look for a book on gun values that has pictures. That should help you identify your Stevens." "Uh, OK Abby. Ya wan me to take my gun to Barnes an Noble an look for a book.?" "NO Bob! Do not take your gun to a book store, take a picture of it with you!"
