International Sales - the buyer is responsible for any & all Custom Fees, if applicable.Wartime 1:432 identification "pocket" models were manufactured in both plastic by Cruver and in metal by Comet Metal Products; wartime models had a small hole at the c.g. for mounting or hanging. Both types were produced after WWII for sale to the public and for use as advertising premiums; many different colors were used for these post-war versions, but they were generally made without the small hole - some, however, do have a mounting hole - the 1945 Authenticast catalog shows a variation of the 1:432 metal aircraft which are mounted on a wire extending from a small metal stand. Perhaps this hole does not go all the way through as on the wartime issues. Several of these post-war models are offered for sale below and are individually priced.General Mills offered a group of 22 planes made by Cruver; a portion of a 1946 newspaper advertisement for these "Kix scale-model plastic planes" is shown below. Ten-cents and a Kix box top for each set! These models were generally in grey plastic. text from www.collectair.com We strive for 5-star service, even though this is just a hobby for us. We always

sale items. in Cigarette Packs early 20th CenturyThe silks/satins/flannels were inserted in Tobacco packs from around 1906 up to around 1916. Flannel
Flags range in sizes from about 5.5” x 3.5” up to around 17” x 12” and some larger.
Most Flags are about 8.25 x 5.5” in size. Tobacco premiums included
a large variety of subject as well – silk Flags, animals, birds, Indian blankets,
butterflies, colleges, sports and movie people, and lots more!!
These very colorful and vivid blankets or flannels were sometimes used to
make bedspreads, quilts, wall hangings, table covers and even robes and other
clothing by the wives and daughters of smokers. They were also a ploy used by theTobacco companies to entice women to smoke,These rugs are documented and priced in some large collectibles books.
These books are hard to find and tend to be pricey.
And there are lots of varieties (border differences, background colors) for
all the rugs.
Condition of the Flags found tend to be fairly good. Some fraying along the borders is
common and does not detract if not too severe. They can also be found to have the original
paper tag (or parts of it) on the back; these do not detract from the appeal or price.
If they got wet in the past, color does bleed some and the rugs can get soiled. The rugs
will fade due to sun bleaching.
Best wishes and happy collecting! Mike
