The following must appear in ALL CAPS and with a space on each side.

AND—Indicates that the records found must contain all the words joined by the AND operator. For example, to find objects that contain the words wizard, oz, and movie, enter wizard AND oz AND movie.

OR—Records found must contain at least one of the words joined by OR. For example, to find objects that contain the word dog or the word puppy, enter dog OR puppy.

AND NOT—Indicates that the records found cannot contain the word that follows the term AND NOT. For example, to find objects that contain the word pets but not the word dogs, enter pets AND NOT dogs.


board game

A private collector obtained this early edition German Monopoly-style game in June 2003 and upon contacting the previous owner, learned that the game had been hand-carried out of Vienna by his mother when the Nazi’s annexed Austria in 1938.The family fled to the United States because of the parents psychoanalytic professions and socialist affiliations. The previous owner recalls playing the game with his parents when he was young and notes that the game box was lost long ago. No manufacturer’s name appears anywhere on the board or cards.
