10csc Clipper?

Submitted by musical5 on June 5, 2012 - 7:31pm

I have seen this case before, but it is not showing up in the database. Is this a Clipper?

Looks like the Mastermatic, companion watch to the Mermaid.

Several new ads showing the Mastermatic, including this 1955 excerpt below.

The subject watch, copied from photobucket to onsite, is below.

Thanks Will, I don't know how to do that!

Your welcome Bob.  If I see an ad or graphic anywhere on site, I RIGHT click on the graphic, and in the properties field, it lists the path to the graphic.  I then copy that path, and in my comment field, I click the little "ad a graphic" button.  The choices come up, one of which is URL to graphic.  I past the path there, and it displays that graphic in the current comment w/o taking up server storage space to "save" the image again.  If the original post or record in which the graphic appears is moved or deleted, then this doesn't work- we see the "red X".  It works most of the time, and is much easier than cut and paste or copying the ad and reinserting via upload to my file storage allocation. 

For the subject watch picture, I optioned to copy from photobucket and upload to my graphics storage folder, then insert.  IMO this works better for this photo, because it exists off site, and may be deleted from photobucket, beyond our control.  By copying and upload (vs what I did for the ad above) it will now continue to be seen in the thread even if the original photobucket picture disappears...therefor no "red X" for this one.

Cut and paste, all over my head Will!

It saves time, server space, and is not too difficult if I can lay out the steps.  I'll do this in a separate forum post, along w/ some screen capture images of the steps.  It will help us by reducing duplication of image files on site, and will help prevent the red x syndrome.
