This would be a neat item for a collector of items relating to death.  Some of the cards and envelopes are perhaps missing.  This a custom that has been replaced in today's society,  but it is a nice reminder of a more personal acknowledgment on someone's passing.

Token Lot-Bibb Manufacturing Company-Macon Georgia
Item #: NEW-0015065

Click image to enlarge
The scan shows a scan of one of the metal tokens  There are four in this lot.  Postage will be $2 regardless of the higher price on the invoice.

The fronts look the same but there is some variety in the backs, which is shown in scan two. These tokens were used to pay the workers at the Bibb Manufacturing Company in Macon Georgia. They were given a token like this when they completed a task. It may be considered scrip rather than a token, I'm not sure about the proper name.  The tokens says "Bibb Mtg Co Spooler Check No One Mill. and some variety on the backs which are shown in the second scan.

 Here is a history of the Company found on the web. Bibb Manufacturing Company, an important part of Georgia's cotton and textile industry for more than a century, became one of the state's largest employers by the mid-1950s before its decline and sale in 1998. The company was known for its quality textile products, originated in Macon in 1876. Named for Bibb County, the enterprise was initiated in 1876 by three cotton merchants, Hugh Moss Comer of Savannah and brothers Major John F. Hanson and I. Newton Hanson of Macon. The merchants set up their first factory for yarn production in a freight warehouse formerly used by the Central of Georgia Railway. Comer served as president and Major Hanson as secretary and treasurer. In 1878 they acquired their second mill by purchasing a former cotton factory, Macon Manufacturing Company. 1895 the Bibb Manufacturing Company employed 700 workers and consumed 20,000 bales of cotton annually.

Crystal Sports Car Paperweight
Item #: NEW-0013555

Click image to enlarge
When I first saw this I thought it was a vintage candy dispenser that I could add to my vintage toy category.  When I got home with it, I realized that it was too heavy to be a candy dispenser and the car is also too modern looking.  It is crystal and frosted on the under belly.  No defects and would make a good gift for a car enthusiast.  Measures six and a half inches wide.

 Disclaimer:  Of course the fact that I have declared it crystal doesn't mean it is necessarily so.  I know how to tell crystal in glassware but all I know is that this sucker is heavy.

Doctor's Medicine Chest-Original Contents-Colonial Period
Item #: NEW-0010976

Click image to enlarge
I bought this wonderful piece from a antiques dealer who had obtained it from a family, possibly from their own family.  It has obviously been largely untouched over the years.  I believe all the contents are original but I don't know for sure. Some of the medicines may be added later. Some items are missing, of course, but I believe that it is unusual to find so many of the original contents.  The only thing that is broken is one of the glasses from the  glass scales. There is a large crack in one of the glass scales. You will note that the apparatus for the scales and the weights are still there. All of the items were in drawers at the top and one both sides.  The wooden boxes shown were empty.  I will not accept paypal on this item but payment plans can be arranged.

Please study the scans closely as I believe they show all of the condition problems.  I have to take responsibility  for the replaced key insert on the right. It was lost in my move to Macon and had always been loose.  I tried to re-glue it a couple of times and it would always come loose.  I should have secured it for the move.  It was replaced with another brass insert by a metal worker friend of mine.  He worked only from a pencil tracing and I think he did a good job for not having the case to work from.  It's not identical and the biggest problem is that the key which may or may not be original to the case.  It does not engage the lock.  

I have included an appraisal that was obtained in 1999 by a Medical specialist and well know Civil War medical dealer. Please review it.  Ignore the shipping cost on the invoice.  I have just guessed at the weight which will need to be determined when packed.
