  1. Is there anyone out there who can tell us something about a reverse etched glass "SELBY ARCH PRESERVER SHOES" sign that I have?

    I would be happy to send photos!

    Thanks,

    Stu Neyland

  2. Sure, what do you want to know? Be happy to buy it from you at a good price.

  3. Stu: Selby Shoe Co was my Great Grandmothers family. Send a photo and rough size of the glass sign and I can tell you what I know about it. Have you owned it for a long time?

    Thanks,

    • I just bought a pilots helmet from ebay that is almost the same kind. Do you know for sure if this was work by WWII pilots?

    • Phil,
      We recently found the same helmet. The last two # were the only thing different. Have you found out any more information?
