    Default 39 dated Tommy mkII with 38 dated liner

    I picked this one up in a flea market today, looks to have been in an outbuilding for a long time, though said to have come from the Manse in Swansea and has a scratched inscription, 10th ??? St James on the brim. I altered the settings in the inscription pic to highlight it, though the "10th" did not show very well

    Sadly, the liner is falling apart, but it was only 10, so not too much spent IMO.

    A few new pics taken today whilst I have some free time.

    Anyone have any insight into the 10th St. James scratched on the rim?

    Why home front if I may ask? Also, 10th does not make sense for an address IMHO.
