Ah Claudio, you won it? Simple, but though a very nice one, really.

What are those maker marks on the Honour Crosses? First is a "CEJ" for C.E. Juncker, berlin - but what are those two others?! Never seen before... is that "GEBR. G. & CO, BERLIN" ?!

Thank you Seeheld for showing your Godet's Frackspange. It has quite a weird but nice backing... I have never seen anything like this. Is it possible to be able to determine until when Godet applied the metallic labels on the back and when they started using the black with white inscription labels? I'd say that the metallic labels there were applied in the 20ies and the other from the earlier 30ies...

Any ideas or any hard evidence on labels?

ciao,

Claudio

    • 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.
