    Thanks Ade for the info, so these were a private purchase item??? Might have to get a box of matches from the shops to display it with. I have noticed on the nest there are a number of different types. Think I paid a little more than they are selling for on the nest, but its not everyday you see one in a shop window!

    qotd.....theres plenty of information on these "patriotic" items in the Imperial section including this item, you have to search.......this forum has a wealth of information, one only has to look. Prost ! Steve.

    Once again Oradour, you have caught me out. I tend to get quiet excited when find these small peices, and even though the info is there, and I appreciate those who contribute, I selfishly like to know wether the partiualr peice I have is ok. I can read tome and verse on these items, and still have doubts, whereas I can post a pic and someone who might collect these may say, theres a red flag here or there. Basicaly what I am saying is I dont trust my own judgement!!! I post the pics, I had never thought of having one of these, just happened to see it, and even though I could read and see pics of real ones, It is still nice to know that this particular example, the one I have in my hands is ok.....
