AAA Historical Americana - World Exonumia.

I COLLECT and seriously want to buy, for my personal collection Rockford area bottle openers.

I am a long-term collector of exonumia: tokens, medals, badges, ribbons and other small collectibles. I am seriously interested in adding to my collections, and would like to buy your items. PLEASE offer any items in the following categories:

Rockford Illinois AREA items I collect:

I collect mostly small items from Rockford area towns, such as Belvidere and Freeport, as well as all towns in the three counties. This includes Pecatonica, Kishwaukee, Lena and other towns. This list details bottle and other openers, can openers, corkscrews, cigar box openers, etc. This is a list of beer openers, bottle openers that I have, I am seeking similar items from other merchants, as well as duplicates. I also collect all openers with the word "Saloon" on the opener (must have that word on the opener).
