They changed their name a couple times ,,think they started out as 'Northstar'..
- 15 years ago or so they were a company selling good reproductions and fantasy pieces. I think the were the first to sell the infamous 'SS Cyanide container'. ..And, they used to sell that wide band HR. Weird looking thing,,I'll try and find a photo of it....

Yes they are very hard to find...lately my luck is severly stuck in proverbial rut ..i usally get within hours of one after auctions or listings end ... Ha! As always ..to most it wouldnt be intresting item..most would look at it as straight from gumball machine..but its peculiar design ..makes it desirable all on its own...even if it in no way resembles the orginal..i will keep hunting til i run one down and corner it for good! And thanks a Million Gaspare!
