My mother used to get the RD and I used to do the Word Power section. 8)  And I picked up a lot at boots in tins of coins.
And all measurements are ish as I've had a couple of glasses.....

That's one of my unidentified pieces. Both sides are the same. Are you sure it's RD? There's nothing on it that says so...

Congratulations on the glasses. Hope they were as good as mine >:D This forum is what you make of it. Too bad for science. You should look at Dale's Austrian new year tokens. You can't find such a collection of interesting stuff everybody neglects anywhere on the net. You add anything (almost) numismatic that strikes your fancy and there'll be someone here who likes it.

Well, it's in my RD bag ;D  But the honest answer is, goodness knows!

I'm on the Blaissac 2010, quaffable but not what I need.  Which is a full bodied St Emilion!!

Your Blaissac (must be a new appelation, I had to look it up) beats my Cilaos (hint: it's a dessert wine), but not when it's 2010. My advice: don't drink young Médoc. If it had aged at least 5 years you would have been asleep and boasting a wicked smile now. :)

Please correct me if I'm wrong but the prize draw coins were returned to RD for a chance to win the prize, hence I don't have any  :'(
