    sold, for $500 (not to me)
    haa, I saw that. I was bidding on the size 11 pair that sold for $426. I think whoever was bidding on these 2 pairs was determined to have them.

    Not affiliated: Anyone here interested in Alden Lace Up Derbies in 4.5EEE?

    I have never seen an Alden in such a small/wide size


    $9.00 for new Aldens? Someone got a bargain. [​IMG]

    Wish I saw this earlier ... they would probably fit my three year old or my one year old (at one time, anyway).

    Ah, but they got dealt a rough hand in life with feet that size - they're welcome to the occasional lucky break!

    very odd..
    I literally was trying for hours at work, and then when I got home
    cleared cookies, multiple computers, different web browsers and no dice
    just tried now, and no issues.. they should be gone now [​IMG]

    Just to stir the pot, whilst I wait for RJman to drop one of his fascinating lists, I've been eyeing what I would term desiderata. Hopefully it isn't too far afield to be annoying to readers of this thread.

    Victorian Watch Fobs. I see at least three groups:

    The gizmo (a compass):
    Here are a couple of examples that will probably sell for at least 60 dollars and probably a lot more.

    http://cgi.ebay.com/Victorian-Solid-...item1c1b830546

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ANTIQUE-VICTORIA...item43a6e0c8d5

    I particularly like the early designs where someone has tried to hand draw the directions on to the dial. I also find it amusing that I haven't found an example yet wherein the jeweler didn't encase what appears to be a 'cheap' brass compass in a gold or silver setting. Well, except for one bizarre little example that was put in a nut.

    The wax seal:
    Just from nosing about, I get the a feeling that fobs designed for wax seals (like the following, though it may not be victorian) were the understated style:
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...=STRK:MEWAX:IT

    The medal:
    There is a whole other class that are basically flat hanging medals. In fact, I've found that many of those were given as prizes for riflery, etc:
    http://cgi.ebay.com/Silver-Plate-Vic...item4aaac0275d

    I've also found spinning seals with trite sayings and clasped containers that are empty or with old photos.
