Are these any good? Anyone have them?

I believe most are Johnson Products. I just got a Walking Liberty Flipper that was a Johnson and I am extremely happy with the quality and cost. The Walking Liberty Hopping Half set is also a Johnson Product (I inquired about this one recently myself). Just shoot them an email and ask about the particular one(s) you are interested in. They are fast to respond and quick to ship.

Hello Rutabaga,
Good question. I don't own any of these but it is somewhat interesting. I'm curious as to item J02968. A Silver, Walking Liberty, Johnson Flipper Coin, for $35.00 US??? Geez, that's cheaper than some of the clad Kennedy halves. Can't be. Anyone else own one of these? Yea, I know, you get what you paid for. See Schoolcraft or Lassen.

I own the standard johnson flipper and it is very good, of course as you stated it isn't anything like Lassen or Schoolcrafts but for everyday abuse they work well.

I can confirm their Walking Liberty flipper is a great value! Just got mine last week and the gaff is well made; looks good with a smooth tight cut.

I just heard that Johnson will stop making gimmicks in silver. So get them while you can.

I just ordered for every day use a couple of silver walking lib half shells. There service was amazing shipped next day and responded to emails quickly. Won't replace my lassen stuff but to keep in my pockets at all times seems logical.
