Very 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 SOLD

Old 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. $16.00

MB031 Period 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".

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.

MB040 1 More 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 SOLD
