Hello Kevin,

Nice pics.

These pictures continue to add to the collection of varieties and sub-varieties and sub-sub-varieties. The list could be endless as time is showing us.

The official strikes, in good condition, do not show up all that often. Trying to find one with a corresponding ribbon and clipping all in good condition contiune to prove to be a bit of a challenge.

Regards,

Rob

Hi Gents,

My latest acquisition - inspired by the recent postings on this thread! Delivered from Bucharest at midday, the Unofficial Type 3 .

Obverse

Reverse

The three countries with C instead of G, and thin links to the chain. Narrow cylinder suspension, planchet diameter 36mm, thickness 3mm. The ribbon is in very poor shape, but I have a piece of French ribbon that I can substitute for it.

I'll post close-ups of the countries' names as Kevin has done in due course.

Any comments welcome,

Bill

Hi Gents,

My latest acquisition, continuing the theme of Romania. It's the Unofficial Type 2, with reversed N and C instead of G.

Obverse

Reverse

The planchet is 36.3mm diameter and 2.3 mm thick, with ball suspension. It's quite light in colour, and the details are sharply struck.

I'll post enlargements tomorrow.

Any comments welcome.

Hello Bill,

A good example you have with nice and distinct strikes.

Hi Gents,

Just in today - Romania Unofficial Type 3, with C instead of G, and wire suspension:

romanianunofftype32nd01_zps88e420d1.jpg

romanianunofftype32nd02_zps2cccde08.jpg

It seems to be quite nicely struck, although the suspension looks more like a filed-down ball - I'll do close-ups and details of the countries names in the next couple of days.

All comments welcome.

Bill

Hi Gents,

The close-ups of the Unofficial Type 3 with wire suspension, as promised.

Obverse ...

Reverse ...

and close-up of the 'Great War for Civilisation' lettering on the reverse. Compared with the cylinder type in post #105 - the upper and lower limbs of the E in the first word are touching the shaft of the axe, as is the lower right angle of the Z at the bottom.

    • 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.
