something with everyone.  Maybe others know, but I certainly didn't... I
thought only the CJs were being reproduced.

(Arkansas/Missouri) who said he has been dealing in cookie jars for 35
years.  He has hundreds in his shop and it was quite a sight to see!  He
deals at the Annual National Cookie Jar Show and knows just about everyone
involved with McCoys.  Anyway, he told me to be on the lookout for repros in
other pieces besides cookie jars.  I have only seen one basket piece redone
(which I bought cheaply because I wasn't sure).  He then showed me a
reproduction of the smaller hand tray shown on page 112 of Sanford's.  I
couldn't believe it - it looked exactly the same and in the beautiful aqua
glaze.  I have this piece in yellow and could compare:  His repro was
slightly smaller, definitely lighter, WAS MARKED NM as the original, but the
interior of the underside was not glazed and just solid bisque (the interior
of mine is entirely glazed).  Had I not been told and ran into this piece
somewhere else, I would have assumed it wa!

cookie jars?  I'm sure we could all benefit from hearing about them!
Incidently, if anyone would like to name a date/time for us to start meeting
in the McCoy chat room, I would love to join in!!!
