I have been directed to your organization by Lynn Stanko, NAL Special Collections ARS USDS. Are you or your members able to identify the Smokey in the pictures, shed some light on its history and establish approximate value?
I find nothing on the RJ Mealey Corp but did identify the Levi’s as approximately 1966. I have had this animatronic Smokey for years stored in the back of my shop. The control unit tubes light up when plugged in, it is missing one hand/uniform/upper body fur but hat, pants, “talking” head and belt are present.
Thank you and kind regards,
OK I need some help. I have 2 decks of the 1997 Coke Convention Smokey playing cards with 2 different jokers on the back of the deck. Is one of them a fake? Thanks Keith Suttles. Please reply to email@example.com
I was wondering if you could tell me the value if any for these late 50’s early 60’s posters
Smokey Bear Buckle
Got a new Buckle for my collection so thought I would send a picture along for you to pass along, I have never seen this one before and I cannot find any information so I am looking for the when and where if anyone out there may know, it is marked W.E.G. on the back with no other markings, 2 1/2 high, 2 1/4 wide , notice the saying is, You can prevent Forest fires, there is no Only ??, I believe this closely resembles the image created by Chuck Kuderna in 1965, what do the experts say ???, it is pewter.
