hard to find June 1968 copies of Time (6/14/68) and Newsweek (6/17/68)
which cover the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy on the cover,
in many black & white and color photographs, and in depth articles
that recount the life of Bobby Kennedy and the details of his murder
by Sirhan Sirhan. The articles go into detail on Robert Kennedy's
service in the administration of his brother John F. Kennedy, championing
of civil rights, and his political rise as he ran for teh presidency
he was poised to win before his assassination on that fateful day
of June 6, 1968. Defeated by Eugene McCarthy in Oregon, Kennedy
desperately needed to win the California Presidential primary, and
on June 5, 1968 he did. His victory speech at Los Angeles’ Ambassador
Hotel ended with the phrase: “And now, on to Chicago…” Leaving the
building through the hotel’s kitchen area, Bobby Kennedy was accosted
by a Palestinian, Sirhan Sirhan, who was reputedly angry with Kennedy
because of the Senator’s support of Israel. Firing at Kennedy, he
felled the Senator with 3 shots including one to the head, and also
hit other bystanders with gunfire. Senator Robert F. Kennedy died
the next day, and his funeral was an emotional event that began
at St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York and culminated in Arlington
Cemetery’s only evening burial. The Time and Newsweek articles recount
this history, the gunman and his plotting, and the emotional aftermath
of Kennedy's assassination. Also filled with great vintage advertising
for cars, cigarettes, early computers (we've included a photo of
an IBM ad which was an early use of an African American in a major
company national ad), and more, these 2 vintage news magazines were
part of a major estate consignment exclusive to Collectics from
a major collector of Kennedy memorabilia. /45

barber razor in the original box and nicely marked on the blade
with the manufacturer's mark and also Fremont, USA. There is a faint
marking of "Trade" on the box, possibly to signify use by professionals.
The razor measures 9.5" long when opened and 6" long when closed.
The handle is most likely made of bakelite and has a tiny break
less than 0.25" long on the end where the razor hinges-- and only
on one side. As such, it's not visible from the other side which
also happens to be the side where the blade is marked (good for
display). The box measures 6.0" long, is a little worn along the
edges and is most likely missing a top piece for the box, but this
is definitely the real thing. The blade is nicely marked with the
manufacturer's mark and that it was produced in the USA. The blade
could be cleaned as you desire, but we have chosen to leave it just
as found. It's very hard to find old barber instruments and
shaving accessories today.
period commemoration cup from June 22, 1911 of the country of Blyth
Urban District Council in England. The cup commemorates the coronation
of King George V and pictures George as well as Queen Mary on the
front of the cup. British flags decorate each side of the portraits
while a crown rests in the center. Below the pictures are King George's
and Queen Mary's names and the words "Crowned June 1911." It stands
approximately 3.5" high and is 3.5" in diameter at the top opening.
It's in good condition except for a minor fracture as shown in the
detail of King George-- this is a period 1911 issue and not a reproduction.
print of a charcoal drawing of President John F. Kennedy by Robert
Riger, a classic depiction of Kennedy printed on heavy stock paper
9.5" x 7.5". President Kennedy has his hand outstretched,
shirt sleeve showing, and note the fine detail in his hair, eyes,
mouth, and fingers & fingernails. It's signed in the lower left
corner Robert Riger, who was best known for his sketches of sports
figures from the 1950s and 1960s. The print is in very good condition
with only some minor yellowing and very light staining on the paper
background, some of which will likely clean and is not noticeable.
No tears or damage, and it comes to you direct from a Greenville,
SC estate collection of mid-century printed art and memorabilia. /36

indispensible for the collector of Americana, student of military

interest to both nautical and ship collectors and lovers of Art
Deco, this is a marked Kensington aluminum tray with Deco clamshell
styling and the logo of the cruise ship line on the lower front.
We particularly like the lines on this piece, the clam shell shape
coupled with the stylized lines and flourishes of the Art Deco etchings.
It measures approximately 10.0 in diameter and is fully marked on
the back with the Kensington mark in addition to the ship graphic
on the top. This period aluminum plate is in very good condition
with only minor scratching from use on the top in a few places-
great to display on a stand or on a wall! Cross listed on Metalware

Wall Plaque" along with 6 coasters that could also be used
as wall plaques, all commemorating the state of Louisiana. This
is a really fun commemorative set in mint condition never used,

including most every major and minor city in Louisiana along with
many of the state's landmarks including the Sugar Bowl stadium,
LSU university, state capital, and various other animals and attractions
native to different parts of the state. The state flower in the

back Amico Sterling impressed in the metal, part of a major consignment

old, early 20th century portrait prints from an upstate Vermont
country home. These are the old high quality prints which have the
look and feel of photographs, but of course photographic prints
don't hold up this well. These prints are also done on heavy photograph
paper and frankly are often mistaken for photographs. The set would
look great hanging together on a wall. All measurements are approximate
and prints are in good condition except for occasional edge wear
which will disappear into a frame. Great vintage collectibles! 1.
Scribe holding paper, hand resting on a book and elaborate feathered
hat measuring 11.0" x 9.0". 2. Woman, breast exposed,
breast feeding her baby 11.0" x 9.0" 3. Handsome young man
in late colonial apparel 11.5" x 9.0". 4. Woman breast feeding
plump baby, with man looking on measuring 11.5" x 8.75". 5.
Pensive young man leaning on elbow 10.25" x 9.0" 6. Old man
with white beard and receding forehead 11.0" x 8.25". It's very
hard to find these old photographic quality prints of the age anymore...perfect
for framing and a great price! Cross listed on Art 2. /24
