I tried to paint them myself, wasn't going to happen. My friend's daughter said she could do it and she does a great job I gave her the one with the eagle on it, said if you can't do it no problem, when she brought it back I said how the heck did you do that, she uses a brush but two bristles on it.

Hi Mailman 1960,
I must admit I'm impressed. Does the value change much? Thanks.

I have no idea,if someone doesn't like it washes right off. I'm talking to the owner of a microbrewery to see if he wants to display them. Everything could be looked up now, to buy them individually would cost a lot of money. He can get them all in one shot and then I'll put my doubles up for sale.

Mailman, You know how to deliver the goods! :) ..What kind of paint is it, if I may ask? I like your idea to paint in order to increase legibility from a moderate distance ( i.e. microbrewery tap room). I hope your sale goes through! Microbreweries are all over the place.:cool:
