    I agree and appreciate your candidness in calling me out.

    I will drop the issue as it is a dead-end subject and brings no joy to my heart.

    My feelings were reinvigorated by reading Max's missive and came bubbling up,
    and as much as I am for open and honest discussion, some things are just left better undiscussed due to the tension it may create.

    The world is as the world is and most of it is beyond any of our control.

    ...the most interesting thing was the cut and presentation. The tin is tall and narrow unlike most standard cutter-tops, and the coins were stacked up like potato chips in a Pringles can, which was pretty cool.

    Sadly, the tax stamp obscures some of the art and text.








    Just thought I'd give this a bump for Jesper to see.

    Thank you very much, Simon.
    My father should have seen this. I would love to taste 'Sweet Chestnut', but should I ever find an unopened tin, I probably couldn't afford it.

    You're more than welcome Jesper, glad you saw it!
    Keep searching the markets & antique shops, you never know what you'll find.

    Anybody know what's happened to Troy/MLC? Thought we might of heard from him over Christmas, been ages since we've seen him. Hope he's alright.

    I might get lucky, you'll never know. If I find one at our local sunday flea market, it'll probably cost me around 5 or so.

    I too, hope that Troy is alright. I always enjoy his posts.
