Hi Martyn & Sue,

Yes please, large as possible and ideally light ground and 2 or 3 angles would be super!

Mail icon to left for email.

Officially red I guess, seems they were a bit vague on some colours.

Cats get everywhere ;)

Those two have been scanned, courtesy Lynne who loaned them and Wolf who scanned them. All of the images are onsite now, it is just the above list which were not illustrated there.

There are 1991 Caithness weights listed, mostly with a single image, but many with multiple examples and images. I have a backlog of a lot more images of actual which will get added in once the catalogues have been done. This way I do not have to try and determine if a weight has already been listed. Front images for each weight will be replaced with the best example in time as many of the catalogue images are poor.

Hi Frank, you may have to wait a bit for the bigger pics as they're stuck on my old laptop that wont be in action until I can locate a cheap replacement inverter (or I learn to see in the dark) we sold the actual weight a few weeks ago so only had the small resized photos that were left on the ebay listing...sorry, thought I had them backed up but apparently not.

As an alternative I saw another identical one today in a charity shop in New Malden so if someone local wanted to pay £10 for it (which I did'nt) they could buy it tomorrow and take some better pics than mine.....?

No problem, 10 pound sounds a bargain, it was 13 pounds issue price and Charlton give all colours at 35! Was it the same colour as yours?

I knew you would say that and did seriously consider buying it, but our one sold for £14.05 which after fees would'nt have left any profit at all, and I did'nt realise till I got home that I did'nt have the original pics on disc. Any south London CG collectors should start queing outside the St Cathrine's Hospice chartity shop in New Malden early (not inspected for damage as it's in a cabinet) It was just the same as ours except without the design centre lable - see below - and slightly different style of mark....still looks pink or cerise to me.
