[98]from "PAPA"-5 January 2001:
Where can I purchase Decades Puzzles in Las Vegas. I want to buy the 1930s, 1950s, and 1960s Decade puzzles.

from Jim McW--8 January 2001:

We've had questions about these puzzles, too. I am assuming that these are produced by KodacolorTM. Does anyone know anything about these? Thanks, Jim McW

*************** from Nancy Ballhagen--23 May 2001:
Hello papa, The decades puzzles are made by Rose Art I believe I have them in my shop. Nancy Ballhagen's puzzles. Email me at misspuzzle@tds.net. Nancy

[99]from "LC"-6 January 2001:
We have a puzzle made by Jaymar Specialty Co. with a scene of young boys and a leader. Looks like cub scouts with a blonde headed boy in a red wagon being pulled by a dog. Also has a sign with "Hilldale 2 mi." We believe it is in the 50's and possibly based on a comic strip character. Do you know the name of the boys group or the name of the strip? Thanks "LC"

To Whom it may Concern:
I have a couple of Tuco Miniature Round Picture Puzzles "Indian Summer" and "In Natures' Wilderness". I am interested in learning the history of such puzzles. I found your site and hoped you could fill me in about these particular style of Tuco Puzzles. Thank you for your time.

from Jim McW--9 January 2001:

Hopefully, visitors to the site may provide info other than what little I can give you. I have never bought one of these, but I have seen a few come up on internet auction sites. They appeared to me to date no further back than the 60's, or maybe the 50's. If I hear anything, I will send you a note. Anybody have any pictures or info on these? Thanks, Jim McW

I was given your name. Would you happen to have puzzle Sprinkbok #PZ12462. Ours is missing two pieces. Thanks
***************
from Jim McW--14 January 2001:

Actually, this would almost certainly be Springbok PZL 2462, issued in 1992. The title is "Ballerinas In Pink". Anybody have this puzzle available? Thanks, Jim McW

***************
from "CL"Thanks any way. I found the two missing pieces in something we were working with right beside the puzzle a long time ago. HA HA so happy. "CL"

[106]from "EI"-16 January 2001:
I have an unopened Tuco interlocking jigsaw puzzle (the seals on the long sides of the box are unbroken; the seals on the short sides are broken, probably because the box is slightly dented).
The puzzle is 21 3/4 x 21 1/4 inches, "over 1020 tripl-thick interlocking pieces," No. 2500, subject No. 33656, titled "Covered Country Bridge." Printed on the cover is a jagged yellow circle with "Key 1 86."
I am wondering if you can give me an idea of the value of this puzzle.
Sincerely,
"EI"
***************
from Jim McW--22 January 2001:

There is a number of Tuco specialists who might be interested, and the puzzle might bring any amount on an online auction site, depending on who sees it. It should sell for quite a bit more than an opened, similar puzzle, depending on its age and condition, and the theme of the picture.
Anybody have more info or suggestions? Thanks, Jim McW

To whom it may concern,
This is actually a request for help. I recovered an old Victory Geographical Puzzle. It's of the Victory series number VM3. I, unfortunately, am lacking the state of Tennessee. I was hoping you might know of some way to get a new piece. Thank you for any assistance.

We would assume that there are companies which represent artists and photographers, but, to be honest, we don't know the answer to your question.

"LR" sent this in, without explanation, other than that it was in answer to an inquiry from "RPS". I know nothing about this vendor of puzzle easels, but the idea is interesting. To see the original inquiry, go to Page One. Thanks, Jim McW

Hello!
Frances suggested I contact you to see if you have a copy of the 1000 piece Springbok PZL5913 "Christmas House" that I could purchase. I want it for sentimental reasons, so it need not be in collector's/mint condition. Thanks!
"MA"
***************
from Jim McW--27 January 2001:

"MA", I have not even been able to find a picture of this puzzle. I believe that you are about the fourth or fifth person to ask for this puzzle. If anyone has a picture of this puzzle (or the puzzle itself), please send it to us, so we can post it. Thanks, Jim McW

[114]from "DRB"-27 January 2001:
Hi,
Just found your website - very cool and lots of good info! I am looking for some information on Buffalo Picture Puzzles (manufacturer - F.N. Burt Company Ltd., Buffalo, NY) and Royton Picture Puzzles (manufacturer - Royton Paper Products Co, Buffalo, NY). I have some very old puzzles by these manufacturers and I don't know much about them.
Can anyone help?
Thanks,
"DRB"
***************
from Jim McW--27 January 2001:

"DRB", I have seen a few of these puzzles come on the market, and I may have even been able to buy one or two of each. I know I have at least one Burt puzzle, Posies in Picardy "Posies in Picardy". Does anyone have any information about these two companies or about any other companies producing puzzles in Buffalo? Thanks, Jim McW

I don't know the web address offhand, but it's a beautiful web site dedicated to Tuco puzzles. I purchased three at the flea market yesterday, and learned quite a bit from that site! The first Tuco puzzles date from the 1930's....
"JS"
***************
from Jim McW--28 January 2001:

Yes, the people who created the Tuco Puzzle Site have given me immeasurable advice and encouragement in my efforts to build this site. Their's is one of the great sites of "puzzle-dom".
I got into vintage jigsaw puzzles by way of Tuco puzzles. When I discovered them on internet auction sites, I began to buy them occasionally. Then I discovered that there is a lot of other fun jigsaw puzzles. Hope you are enjoying our site. Come back often, and take a look at our "Q&A" pages. Thanks, Jim McW

Hi,
I have a Alice in Wonderland Picture Puzzle from the 1930's in Very Good condition. All the pieces are available, and the only wear is on the corners of the package cover. Could you tell me how much this item is?
- Thanks
"JW"
***************
from Jim McW--28 January 2001:

I have seen several puzzles with this title, so it would be difficult to pin down its value, since I don't know which one this is. In any case, puzzles' value depends a lot on condition, rarity, and market demand. In other words, it's worth what someone will pay for it. This is hard to predict. If you have more information about it, and/or a picture or scan, send that to me, and I will tell you as much as I am able to do. Thanks, Jim McW
