This Just In: 1950s Cavalier C51A Coca-Cola Machine

Jan 23, 2017

We’ve just brought the sweetest vintage Coca-Cola machine we have ever found to our booth D-5 at Old Glory Antique Marketplace in Frederick, Maryland. The C51A Coca-Cola machine is in excellent working order! We purchased it from a huge Coca-Cola collector who let go of his entire collection to us last weekend.) The owner used this machine until the day we put it on our truck. We’re asking $5,600 but are always open to reasonable offers. A few minor scratches here and there and a few screws on the back panel fell off and disappeared while we were moving it but overall this is a gorgeous machine. Visit Old Glory seven days a week and ask the staff to call us if you’d like to make an offer. You can also contact us ahead...

Paul Wegner bronze sculptures for sale March 5-6

Mar 2, 2016

This Paul Wegner bronze sculpture “Close Enough for Jazz” signed by the gifted American artist is stunning. Photos don’t do it justice. You take one look at it and it simply stops you in your tracks. You feel compelled to soak it in, to lose yourself in time as your eyes roam the piece from every angle. Jazz music seems to enter your mind out of nowhere as you study the concentration in the hands and faces of the musicians. You wonder about the extraordinary amount of time the artist put into the piece. Pangs of angst and regret strike you if you step away from it without buying it right there on the spot. You know you’re simply not likely to happen by the piece again. The artist only made 175 of them...

Old baseball photos launch trip down memory lane

Feb 10, 2016

I can’t help but get a little nostalgic every time I run into baseball memorabilia from yesteryear. I’m transported back to Atlanta Fulton-County Stadium, where I watched baseball’s real home run king, Hank Aaron, swat balls out of the park. I was six years old then. I sat breathless in the same stadium at age nine when Atlanta Braves’ reliever Gene Garber struck out Pete Rose and stopped his consecutive games hitting streak at 44. The six old five-inch by seven-inch black and white photographs of baseball players from the 1930s and 1940s we just turned up is what punched my ticket to my latest stroll down memory lane. I stumbled across them in a random box of old photographs we bought from a woman who inherited the stuff. The American League Service Bureau...

Just In: USS Rochester ship newspaper 1930-1933

Aug 13, 2015

We found an extraordinary five-volume bound set of the official newspaper of the United States Ship “The Rochester” that span from Aug. 23, 1930 to March 25, 1933. The collection was originally compiled by the ship newspaper’s editor, W.H. Humphrey, whose family we have been working with. There are three volumes of “The Rocky” bound in green boards and two in brown. Some issues are duplicates but the set of five tells the full story of the lives of the men and the mission of the ship. This is truly an exceptional find that should be of tremendous interest to military collectors, historians, descendants of the U.S.S. Rochester and anyone with a love for the U.S. Navy. We have thoroughly enjoyed reading the set and are now making them available for others to love....
