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.

    • Lapsang Souchong, when i first tasted this I thought it was like stale cigarette ends...it's an acquired taste for sure.  
    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
    • I drink tea every day (Chinese tea), I used to buy Sri Lankan black tea at the fair before, it was great! I have been reluctant to drink them all. . The tea I’m talking about is just brewing water, not adding other substancesI
