what lobbs did i get? - Page 2

If they have three crests (The Queen, the Duke of Edinborough, and the Prince of Wales) they are probably not more than 20-25 years old. I once saw an old pair with two crests (none for the Prince of Wales). I am not sure when it added his.
If I am not wrong, the POW only receives his crest when he gets married. He is not even titled POW until then. If it has only two crests, that means it was probably made before 1981.

Okay, fb, great find. Now please tell me that it wasn't the Goodwill at Mission and S. Van Ness and the shoes weren't, say, about a size 9.5/10. I've been avoiding that store a bit since they changed everything around. Why is it when they clean stores up the good stuff all disappears? Anyway, congratulations on a very nice find. I do realize that I can't get them all.

that's the location. the size, i'm guessing (hoping), was around 11-12US. i do know they were too small for my 13s. every once in a while some good stuff shows up there. luckily i work right down the block, so at least a couple times a week i stop by at lunchtime. /andrew

Maybe that explains why I never find anything at that store anymore Actually, I rarely go - you have to be super-diligent with the SF Goodwill's these days, there is not anywhere near as much nice stuff as there used to be...

heh, could be. but if you're looking for stuff to flip on ebay, not stuff that's your size (which also happens to be my size), i never buy the stuff that doesn't fit me, so you may find things. but as has been noted, it's slim pickin's. /andrew

Damn--11-12US that's my size.Oh well,opposite coast anyhow.Yea,since the good ole US gov instated that only "fair market value" can be declared on donated goods,I believe that's killed the thrift store finds.There are definitely slim pickings at all the stores around here.Nothing like it used to be.Thanks a PANTload,Uncle Sam.
