Hi Troy,

Thanks for the info, but I have Tiestes 2 volumes, so no need to post his reference numbers. I am of the mind that they may change anyway when he produces his updated work. There are many more than he has listed so far. I must have 10-15 or so, not in his books.

If you do wish to refer back to earlier posts, please put in the post number. It makes it much easier to find the one you are refering to

Sorry Pete!

I thought you may not have had them as you were unsure of a couple of them, my mistake! When his next series comes out, apparently 2013/14, it should have at least 15,000 listings. However, I don't think you should worry too much about the reference numbers changing, my '94 and '02 Tieste books still carry over with the same classification numbers as the current '06 volumes. I have over 100 non-Tieste pieces, mainly pre-1930. I asked him if he was going to include pre-'30 tinnies next time, and he said he may or he may publish a separate volume to deal with these. I'm thinking of maybe starting a pre-1930 tinnies thread, what do you think about that? Some of mine go back as far as 1877 :)

Hi Troy, I only post badges that I own. Otherwise we could just fill it up with book illustrations.

New thread, Hmmm, difficult as quite a few pre 30's tinnies relate to the Third Reich, and other organisations either pro or anti Facism.

But why not, I think I have posted most of mine in the general tinnie database anyway.

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
