    Great to see all the old guard at the swap meet,God Bless Jim Sharp,Still coming,driving and socializing , at Age 90. What a gentlemen//////I've been involved from the first club meeting ,left for a time and returned . Bill Navitil Has tried many ways to drum up new support,interest ,and affairs to try to bring new interest into this club. The hardest working president yet,others did a good job, but Bill has put his heart,time and energy and soul into this club to no avail.To far to travel,promises to transport for pay never kept,and I have a headache are all the reasons YOUR CLUB is at the point that it is at. Even changing events to weekends so that young members would not loose work days.Put the blame on the members not any dedicated officers ,past or present who put their time and effort 100% for the benefit of this club. When the pictures are posted of the items that were there,maybe your interest might change,and the realization of non participation means missing , seeing or purchasing good items. Well I enjoyed this meeting and the Hospitality offered by Terry and Janice Speece,it was exceptional .Thank you both.1500 Miles traveled was not to far,to see friends and fellow collectors who enjoy the hobby.Picked up three machines comming to the meeting, and was able to purchase the 442 and #4 original toppers at the swap meet. Till next time MMM

    Hi Mike,
    Those are very nice machines. I'm curious. I see on the 2 renaissance style machines you have what I thought were fluer-de-lis top signs. Were both renaissance and fluer-de-lis style top signs used with the renaissance case style? Trying to learn more :-) Thanks.

    Not being the expert but being the oldest:
    The sign designs are the same, but with the Renaissance size being slightly wider.

    What I meant to say, was that the signs on Mike's registers were like he normal Fd signs but slightly wider.

    Look on my web page www.brasscashregister.net, I have a section on top signs that should help. Some of the pictures can be moved so watch for the arrows. A lot of top signs are interchangeable so you can find them on any machine that takes that size. It takes a lot of time to figure out what is right & most are acceptable. Many are reproductions & that also takes time to learn.
    Good luck,
    Dick

    The FDL and renaissance signs are exactly the same size. The only difference is the position of the feet. On the renaissance, the feet are at the ends, the FDL the feet are set inwards or closer together.
