CCBCo 1924 Circular:
$95.00

Very rare four page circular for the "New Bait Casting Lures For 1924." CCBCo was creating new designs so quickly they needed these interim printings between the big catalogs. This one had a large section cut from the 3rd and 4th pages. Fortunately, I have a complete example to copy this section, then place it perfectly over the missing section. Save a bundle and still have the research info. (Cat. #19094)

"Umbrella" Flasks/Shot Glass:
$440.00

Disguised as a man's umbrella! The cloth outer sleeve appears to cover an umbrella. Instead it covers a hollow wood shaft that contains three 4" glass vials for hiding booze! A metal tip and a solid wood taper at the base. The top 7 1/2" is a double threaded wood & brass handle. Unscrew the complete handle to reveal the three corked glass vials. The brass end cap unscrews to a secret shot glass! Overall condition: A small split in the wood handle where it joins the shaft. Both sets of threads are worn but work. The shot glass is a tight fit inside the cap. I would leave it in place. This is a super rare item that will keep you "wet" instead of dry! (Cat. #15441)
