I think that these are both reproductions, (stamping seems crude). Still might be of interest at the starting price anyway.

Somebody jumped on both of them... Just as I was about to pull the trigger, they ended up SOLD...

What is a genuine Clark Johnson worth? I'll rephrase that, how much do they typically sell for?

Ya gotta be quick. Last week I checked CL listing and there before me was an ad for 30-40 Edison cylinders, the ad said they were in good condition and mostly military marches, think it was at least that many cylinders and to boot they were FREE! Not only were they free they were in my neighborhood. I never got a response to my Email (wonder why). Apparently someone clued them in as to value or it was a lure. While I was reading the listing I could hear at least a hundred people headed to get them. :( :( Cheers

I was the buyer. I figured, real or not they were worth getting. I will make the missing parts for the partial reproducer.

Glad you got them... I believe these are correct. I bought some needle tins from Russ and he had an amazing number of them....
