A knowledgeable collector sent this picture:
Blind Man's Buff"Blind Man's Buff", SPRINGBOKTM.
I got the impression that this might not be the easiest Springbok to acquire.

RE: DOLL PICTURES
You have a wonderful, interesting, informative site. I never knew there was so much interest in puzzles. I have worked them since I was a child and have never saved them. I have some wonderful doll puzzles {antique dolls} and cannot find any sites to purchase more. Some are color form and do not remember the others as I make pictures and dump the boxes.
Thank you all

I need to know where I can find information on a puzzle produced by Jaymar Specialty Company in the 1960's. I have the puzzle which is titled "The Beatles Yellow Submarine, Beatles in Pepperland" puzzle and I have searched the web to see if I can find one for sell or find out what this puzzle is worth. Can you help direct me? Thanks

We have had quite a few people write to us asking for instructions, many of whom said they had the instructions, but they were in another language, French, we suppose. But we have been unable to get a single person to send us the instructions or a copy thereof [ address near bottom of this page ]. But, we have never seen the instructions, and we don't have a copy. If we had them, I think we could get a translation.
Thanks, Jim McW

I am looking for the puzzle Trumps General Store by Ceaco. Do you know where I could buy this puzzle?

We have seen this puzzle recently on internet auction sites. In fact, I would not be surprised if there is at least one copy up for auction right now.
In addition, you can go to our LINKS page and click on Nancy Ballhagen's MISSOURI PUZZLES link. I seem to recall that she may have some similar puzzles.

Hi,
Can you please direct met to websites or tell me the name of books that can help me to place a value on old puzzles, I have 100's that I am interested in selling, but I just don't know where to begin.
Thank you,
"YY"

from Jim McW--24 March 2002:
Anne William's book [see our LINKS and SALE pages] provides some guidance, but the best way to value your puzzles is to look at similar puzzles in the market. See what they are selling for at on-line auction sites, for instance. The price that a puzzle realizes depends on many different factors: completeness, rarity, demand, presentation, venue, access, condition, etc. Good luck!

I recently purchased a large amount of vintage puzzles at an estate sale. I was wondering if there is a good list of puzzles on the web or in book form, as a reference with amount of pieces per puzzle, so I can determine, if all the pieces are indeed there without putting all the puzzles together.
Thanks,
"anon"

from Jim McW--24 March 2002:
Not that I'm aware of. If you find one, let us know!
One problem with that concept, we have been told, is that the dies with which the puzzles are cut sometimes break, so that cuts are frequently not identical, and a single factory run of a particular puzzle may have individual puzzles of different numbers of pieces. Furthermore, we have found puzzles with one extra piece. You could theoretically have a puzzle with the "right" number of pieces, but one of them from another puzzle.

I have a print with words "B. C. Reichert Mischievous Kittens." I recently learned that this was originally a puzzle from the 1940's or 50's. The print is numbered 99a, and is very beautiful. I wondered if you could tell me anything about the original puzzle, or about the print itself.
Thank you for your time.

We can tell you that there was a Perfect Picture puzzle by that name, which appears to us to date to the 1930's or 1940's, and a Tuco, from the 1940's or early 1950's SM 25"Mischievous Kittens".

[515]from "DL"-25 March 2002:
I have a Whitman Publishing Company Puzzle, 304 Pieces 18x15 1/2 inches, No 2900 that my grandmother had. I can read a few words on the bottom front of the box ? Winter by ?Jolf Dehn. The picture is a winter scene, a man holding a gun, walking with his dog, a woman feeding chickens, red, blue, green and dark purple houses/barns. A few trees and pine trees in the back. There is a farm tool in the front of the picture that my mom thinks is a "harrow".
Any idea as to how old it is? We would appreciate any info you have on it.
Thanks for your help,
"DL"

We suspect that the artist is Adolf Dehn.

I am looking for a picture frame for a puzzle it measures 20x27. I am not having any luck and am wondering if maybe you know where I can get a frame this size online. Thanks
"CM"
***************
from Jim McW--27 March 2002:
We once found some frames that were perfect for mounting puzzles. They consisted of a wooden backboard, a sheet of clear vinyl, and four strips of metal framing. It was fairly easy to place the assembled puzzle between the backboard and the vinyl sheet and clamp the frame pieces to the edges to hold the whole thing together.
We have also heard of a "plastic box" frame. Unfortunately, we do not know where to find either of these types of frame!
Does anyone know?
Thanks, Jim McW

Last year, in no. 254, Page 18, "CA" asked for a list of "Painted Ladies", by KODACOLORTM. "summer-joy" has written to tell us that she has three for auction. We decided this might be a good time to start the list that "CA" asked for.:
Hughes Street, New Jersey"Hughes Street, New Jersey", 550 pieces.
"The Rosalie House"
"Cayuga Street - Salinas, California", 1000 pieces, 2000.
"The Christmas House - Elmira, NY", 1000 pieces, 1999, number 21003.
"The Christmas House - Elmira, NY", 500 pieces, 2000, number 20500.
"The Gingerbread Mansion", over 400 pieces, 3D, 1997.
Anyone who has another title to add to the list, please write.
Thanks, Jim McW
