Probably date that 52 1/2p team to just after decimalisation in 1971. Teams before then invariably seem to be diced at 9/11.

They were 10/6 for a short time - probably six months or so.

If SSG had gone from 9/11 straight to 52½p, they'd have had the Trading Standards folk round. They were very sharp on traders jacking their prices up and hiding behind decimalisation.

Diced? Turn that auto-correct off, dlewis. :Doh:

You have picked up a nice set of teams again. I particularly like the 40 - I have this as an Original HW but it looks great as a Classic HW

That's a well painted 3 but I expect Skell would have preferred the white sleeved variant. :rolleyes: :lol!:
