These pieces have caused chaos over the years  ::)
Apparently they were part of an advertising campaign in 1971-1972 by the Theraplix Laboratory.
As a treatment for, wait for it, hypertension!
Yes, I'm missing one  :'(

Well done!  ;D

It had to turn up eventually and your hypertension is now eased.  >:D what a relief!

I would have expected the same size and weight.

It would be interesting to know how these copies were made.
