Found in a new old stock cache in a SWPA barn, this card is new old stock from the 1880s/90s. I assume that the Professional Hypnotist card / artwork is a blank and the name and town would be printed in – Bert F. Ober, Stahlstown PA. Measures 2 3/4″ x 4 1/2″, very nice condition. $25.

Plaster casting of a Crocodile’s jaw/snout that measures 31″ long by 10″ wide and approx 10″ tall. It appears to be from the 1930s or 40s based on the paint and the aging. I was told that it was de-accessioned at auction by a local college, with a fine history. There is very little damage to it given the age, just some very minor chipping (mostly just to the paint, not to plaster itself in most cases) along the edges. Does have a museum or college collection number painted on the jaw. $195.
