Welcome to The House of Gutenberg
I am open to offers or trades.
IMPORTANT NOTE: I have
signed an agreement with Alexander Historical Auctions to auction all of my inventory over the next 12 to
18 months. My first shipment to them included all of my Knights Cross autographs, about a dozen books, and 50
of my relic displays. My next shipment to the will be in early January 2014. Once items have been shipped to
Alexander, they will not be available from me. You will have to contact Bill at firstname.lastname@example.org or www.historyauctioneer.com
This site replaces my http://www.hotlinecy.com.
In the Navigation Panel you can click on the link under the Home Page Link
(Inventory Catalog) and see spreadsheet inventories of the areas where I have completed my
Search. You can search for
keywords or names in the search box above. That will show the pages on which your search can be found. It may
take a minute or so to complete the search.
Payment. I accept PayPal, personal check, cash
and money orders. Lay-aways are accepted for up to 90 days and Holds are accepted for 30 days. All items are
shipped within one working day of payment.
age 79 I am looking for someone to acquire my entire inventory. I am open to offers. Interested parties would
need to come to Lufkin, Texas to view my inventory. It is far too large for me to post and I do not have an
accurate catalog. There are literally thousands of items. See my Contact page for details on how to reach me.
For more details on my inventory, see the My Inventory page. Book value of everything is well in excess of
$100,000.00. When I complete this site it will be the best inventory I can come up with, excluding duplicates
and similar items.
UNIDENTIFIED ITEMS: In my collection
there are a few items I have not identified. These are photographs, autographs, relics, etc. They are all in
the Unidentified Items area. If you recognize anything in this area, I would appreciate a heads up.
To purchase anything on this site, please send me a PayPal invoice request at email@example.com and include the item(s) you wish to purchase. Your
invoice will be sent immediately and will include any discounts and actual shipping charges for the total purchase.
The shipping charges in most descriptions are estimates. I combine all orders for shipping costs and do not mark up
I hope you will find my site interesting.
I first started building this new site with XsitePro June 22, 2013.
As with most sites, this is a work in progress. I have moved everything worth keeping from my old
site - http://www.hotlinecy.com and have deleted that site. My old site
contained over 400 pages. I hope to condense www.lufkincy.com down to
less than 50. I have dedicated about 4 hours a day to this project.
Below you will find descriptions and in the navigation bar on the right side of each page, links to
these various areas.
I have intentionally not made this site a "flashy" one with lots of graphics. I have limited my graphics to
jpegs of the various items. There are many sites on the web that have gorgeous graphics designed by some of the
best professionals. My intention is to not compete with those in any area other than content and ease of
navigation. That is the area in which I hope to shine. Howhever, as I become more competent using XsitePro I will
be able to make the site more attractive with color backgrounds on the pages and will be able to make navigation
easier once I learn how to edit the navigation panel.
Once completed, this site will be both my catalog and an inventory of everything I have that is for sale.
If you would like a larger picture or have any questions about any item, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
