I believe the small square label with 'The Original' was first used in 1996. Mark's book on page 136 doesn't actually say it was used earlier than this.

 :help:

I was wondering if a kind moderator would please change the title of this thread?  :hi:

The Anniversary label was for the 30th anniversary, not the 25th, and as 25th is in the title, it could lead folk who don't read the whole thread to think there was a 25th anniversary marked with a special label...... and another wee myth could end up being perpetuated.
Cheers, Sue (M)

"A larger, rectangular 25th Anniversary gold label was introduced to commemorate the studio's 25th anniversary in 1997.  This was used until a similar 30th anniversary gold label was introduced for this event in 2002."        Michael Mark Hill - Michael Harris (Mdina ....................) page 136.

I think my title was in fact correct, assuming Mr Hill was correct in his facts - don't you.

Mod: Mark's name corrected

 :thud:

Oooooops! You're absolutely right, Ross.  :-[

So does anybody have a 25th anniversary label which could be photographed and posted in this thread to keep things right? - then perhaps a moderator would kindly put both years in the title?

My fault, Anne, I'm very sorry indeed.  :ooh:
But we still need a kind somebody to produce an image of the 25 years label, and then it can be put to bed quietly in the "resolved" or perhaps even "archive" section, with these labels clearly illustrated.  :t:

Surely somebody must have one! It was used from '97 - '02.

I've got coach-bolt marks, flame marks, triangular black labels, square black labels, a clear square label, gold square labels and gold square "the original" labels. I have even discovered one horribly worn and illegible 30years rectangular label (Suzy's was still needed, honest!  :pb: ). I don't have a 25 year one.
Cheers, Sue (M)

Ross, Mr Hill might like to be called Mark, not Michael  ;)

No worries Sue! :kissy: and now we have the country forums we don't need to archive or resolve topics, cos the country forums do that automagically. :)  It would be good to have a 25 year label though...
