Cool Site, Went to a Auction this weekend and bought my first piece that needs refinishing. Just what I need, another project that the wife now calls Roll Top Junk. But for $35, why not. I am wondering if I can email a pic and someone can give me a approximate age? The Roll looks like its been stuck for years. I pulled the top off and forced the roll around (not sure how to get it completely out yet) and sure enough, tons of goodies. A postmarked letter from 1913 with 2 1 cent stamps, containing a readable letter. A boys bicycle give away from 1937, Life insurance policy, $1.50 a month in 1915. I plan on framing all this and hanging it above where I put the desk. It is painted a dark brown on top of Oak so I have alot of work to do. Thanks 1cadd@cox.net
