I know your concerns about repro's but sometimes you just have to take
the chance. I, however choose to take that chance at a much lesser
cost. A couple of weeks ago I found a pot bellied stove cookie jar at a
tag sale for $1.50. It was clearly marked McCoy and is in perfect
condition. I couldn't believe my luck. So, even if it were a repro
(which I am certain it is not) I wouldn't be out much money.
Got lucky at a tailgate sale yesterday and purchased a pretty wall
pocket for $8 and found out when I got home it was a McCoy. My first
wall pocket and a pretty one at that.
I find most of my real bargains at garage, yard and tag sales. Not to
mention thrift stores. If it's up at auction, chances are you'll pay a
lot more. Auctions can be great fun though.
Happy hunting. You just never know where you are going to find that
special piece. :-)
