  2. Thanks Chad the only place i know to find Veiligglas is on ebay Uk mate but don't go bidding on any the competition is already tough enough for the good one's Lol Surprisingly & Lucky for me no one really wanted these but that first picture which was the only picture in the listing it was pot luck whether the condition was going to be any good always a gamble on a box lot
  3. Few new one's i picked up first a group shot from the sale listing , all are 1 inch or just close , the hunt continues 😉
  4. Thanks Steph 🙂
  5. Was just poking around looking to help some one out with there bag and came up with this 🙂 From the Official Gazette of the US patent office 1955
