          • Re: Old Skool Packaging - Any collectors?

            Hi guys,

            I just stumbled upon this thread, as I collect old candy and crisp/snack packets. I wanted to know if any other collectors reside here on the forum, as this thread includes a lot of great images I'd love to trade for.

            If anyone here is a collector please drop me a private message, or reach me through Flickr.

            My collection is viewable on Flickr here:

            But here are a few UK things that you can see there. My apologies if some of these have been posted already, I see that a few of my Flickr postings have been sourced in this thread already:




            Thanks!
            -Jason

              Those little jars for fish pastes! I used to have on toast, and when I had washed the jar out I would use it for water colour painting rinsing my brush out in, and for using with my "magic painting book" ,but the little jars seemed better then?

                          1971 Cadbury Schweppes Hartleys Jar Lids Football Stars

                          seven (of 12) lids that came from jars of jam in the early 1970s - probably 1971/72.

                            Saw a copy of that book in a charity shop yesterday, and laughed when I read the entry about the coins

                              The Museum That Described a Coin Wrongly


                              
In October 1971 in County Durham some people made a big mistake. The South Shields Museum proudly described one of the coins on show as a Roman coin. Miss Fiona Gordon, who was 9 years old, told them something about the coin that surprised them. It was, in fact, a plastic coin that came from a business that sold sweet drinks. They gave them to people who returned bottles to the shop. When they asked her to explain, she said, ‘I knew because I saw the letter “R” on one side of the coin.’ A man from the museum said, ‘The coin looks just like a Roman coin. We thought the letter “R” meant “Roma”. In fact it was “R” for Robinsons, the business that makes the drinks.’ ‘The date is wrong by almost 2,000 years,’ Miss Gordon said helpfully.
