Interesting that he does not mention R280, the Wellington head one, may be it had not come to light at that time. I do have the odd item out of Seabys collection that Magnay bought. I am looking for Egyptian Box, Spanish Box, and a few others to complete the collection, you have got me looking again.

The Hope Box on eBay that you have shown is not the one that I was looking at, there is another one that I was talking about. just enter Hope Box under Coins and it should come up.

I have just had a look and they both came up. The one you refer to is shown as 28mm X 11.5mm so it is the four medal box yet it seems the PoW medal is missing from that set with only three shown.

I saved the images of the fourth medal listing all the children.

There are other medals for the hope box that I have. The Chinese Junk Keying, one with just type instead of the POW. It has been suggested that there is a five and six set box, I have yet to see one. Given the existence of the Keying Junk medal that is identical in all ways to the others already noted for these boxes, ie, weight, size, it would seem probable. The internet has changed so much in the way of greater shared information from a decade or two ago, when Rogers book was created.

I have not seen the other pieces you mention, have you pictures you can show?

The internet has certainly been a great help in finding new material and information.

Glade the POW Box top arrived ok, I need a base for the G. 1V box, Rogers 4090.  21mm inside or there about, if you come across one please give me a heads up.

This is a nice rare one, it was made by Jahncke’s for Lauer and is stamped profusely which is always a good sign. Rogers 4200… It contains a Lauer Swiss 1888 set.

Comparing this box with my BAC box I see mine has copyright written on the inner lip of each end just above the “Jahncke's Patent”.

BTW I have a spare lid for the Hope box but no other parts.
