Quote from: andyg on December 01, 2011, 07:15:12 PMThe 1927 sets were issued from August 1928, price 15/6 for the card box of £1.1.9 for the leather box (including postage). To get one you had to apply to the mint enclosing a cheque or postal order for the value with no guarantee that you would actually succeed. It would have been a very rich boy to find a set in his stocking at Christmas....
Quote from: villa66 on December 02, 2011, 05:25:47 AMNice '38 crown (and thanks for the design connection). Don't suppose you have any insight into why it was coined? I don't agree with them, but I have read plenty of folks who think all it did was step on the '37. v.
Quote from: villa66 on December 02, 2011, 04:57:37 AMAny idea whether the Wreath crowns of subsequent years were sold at face, or whether those folks also had to pay a premium to get one for Christmas?
Quote from: andyg on December 02, 2011, 07:35:05 PMNot sure - As far as I know you had to order them in a similar fashion to the 1927 sets from the mint, but I can't find what price they were issued at.
