Don Bitner - not sure but somewhere in early 1960s is a guess.

StevieBootsGuy - That is another tough one. Handwriting styles for the numbers/letters is a little different.

I have seen TOs boots w/o the "T" and "S."

Most of Rodney's have a cloth label or stamp.

How do you typically differentiate between T.O. and Ammons boots? Especially early work of T.O. where they share the same fox heel counters. Sometimes I ran into some boots that the design, stitching, handwriting and code inside the shafts that are identical to T.O. boots but missing the T and S stitching on the side. And I could not tell if they were T.O. or Ammons as Ammons usually has label inside but those didnt have it.

Thanks for replying. I never heard of that brand but did Google it. Would they be worth anything? Trying to upload more pictures

Gwen M,

Hard to tell from that picture but I would guess the boots are similar to Acme.

I received these boots as a gift from my dad in early 60's. Found them the other day while cleaning out a closet. They are in really good shape for the age but I was trying to read the inside label. Maybe someone can help. thanks

The 2110 may be for 11B.

Can you do a picture of the label?

You may want to get a box fan for more circulation.

I am not saying you don't need to worry but a lot of bootmakers/repair guys made it to old age.

I've been helping out my grandpa with his shop and reselling boots business for a while now. 2 or 3 years I think. Most of the day I spent cleaning and polishing the boots so he can put them up for sale. My question is, for you guys bootmakers and collectors in here, what is the general consensus about being exposed to those chemicals for a prolonged period of time? I don't use a lot of shoe polishes per se, mainly just Bickmore 4, Skidmore's Restoration Cream and shoe waxes. We have boots lying around everywhere in our house though. Bedroom. Living room. Sometimes we left the cream sit on the boots overnight to for them to be soaked up. We work mostly inside the house so there is some air flow but not exactly ventilated like garage or backyard. I'm sure guys in here have spent years taking care of boots so I'm just curious since sometimes I did feel a bit lightheaded or mild headache after a long session of working.

He is with Waldo <grin>

To be truthful, most of the activity on custom cowboy boots is happening on Facebook. Facebook, good or bad, is taking over everything.
