And of course these "framed"

Nice example ;)

Did those finally sell, or are they still stuck on YJA?

Remeber this "mysterious"? :whistle:

Hard to forget...... ;)

I recently saw the commemorative version of this with a gold mum. Here's another regular with a gold mum - do you think they were actually made this way? I think they were probably painted to sex them up to try to make more $$$$. :unsure:

Stuck? Such rare piece of history?! :whistle:

Well, this "sexing up" looks more or less professional to me (although I don't like the looks of "sexing up" of pink ribbon).

I am inclined to think that this is an "official" variation of "green ribbon" (influenced by 1928 Showa enthronement medal?).

Do you have this one in your collection?

Yep! This is one is in my collection. Has original paper box and cello-wrapper too. The gold does look well-done, so maybe there is something to your theory and it is not just sexing it up...??

I've shown this one before, but I'll put it up again for this thread, Imperial Guard "edition":

Aw, dang! I've been over this thread and just can't remember anything, like that you had already posted! I've got the memory of somebody twice my age. Early onset Alzheimers...... ;)

    • 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.

    • 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
