 Hi again all,

Hands up everyone who thought we had finished with this topic,  ;D >:D

I now have a collection of three of these "Historic" ? weights, all slightly different.
Here are a couple of photos of the new one,

The inscription on this new one reads, Tranquility Base : Eagle Has Landed 20 - 7 -69 *,
It has a small air bubble above the inblown moon surface which is not on the Perth factory ones and is marked to the rim, CG 19/500. The glass is twice as thick as on my other two Moon Landing weights both of which are from the factory at Perth and are of a limited edition of 1000.
It's also of a different colour again, this time being a smokey brown.

I believe this weight to be from the Caithness factory at Wick, but as usual I would welcome others opinions and comments.

Here is the other on Scotland's Glass

Interesting find, would you like to include in the catalogue? Should it be separate entry (I think so.)? I can link it back to here if we don't get a quick answer.

Nothing is ever completely finished  ::)

Hi Frank,
Happy for you to include it in the catalogue, I will see if I can get better photos and send them on to you.
Is there any size restriction on photos ?
