I'm well pleased with them...........
They must have taken you past 350 bangers know , in your collection .?
Yes, past the 350 point, guess next logical step is to aim for 400............ doubt I could ever find another 40 plus examples but it will be fun trying.......... I'd be happy to add anything more........... never know what's waiting to be found out there.
I recall you saying something similar quite a while agao...and that was well before you found 350. Your discoveries amaze me every time and they just keep coming.
Think I was aiming for 300 having been stuck at around 280 for quite a while..........
I remember the Barrier Breaker very well, may still have an odd fired one lying around somewhere, definitely got the label in an old scrap book.
A nice early small Standard 2/6 box plus a 6d Standard Sky rocket.......
The old stuff never gets old. And it still keeps coming.
If you've got things like that Barrier Breaker in fired condition, what other gems might you have that would fill a space in the collection until such time that a live example could be found ?
If you get chance could you gather a few up, take a pic and let me see what there is.........
Memories! Does anyone know why they can't make the traffic lights fountain anymore? Standard just do three conics or in smaller boxes just small fountains.
Learn something new every day....... turns out Standard produced this rocket in 2 sizes at least....... one I got yesterday is the one on the right, other example is from the stock I already had...... so a new 6d rocket for the 60's Standard collection.
Had a phone call yesterday, asking if i would like some old bangers to go into the shop's vintage display cabinet. Why woud you say no, as kevin says "its still out there"
cant beat an old banger !
@Northeast Fireworks photos of said cabinet please!
Four more bangers for the collection
Brocks Hornet , 2 different sizes of Phoenix Fireworks Thunder Flash and a Phoenix Fireworks Flash Gun
A nice selection of early Standard items, Silver Fountain is a 4d price marked example.
Selection of 3d Rockets
Not a complete carton so will be moving many of these on to other collectors, in amongst them I found 5 different variants, but only this one set which stays here in my collection.......... still leaves green and purple examples available......
I've never seen those rockets before so must be pre 1960 when i was born, did they eject anything or were they just a tail as most small rockets were back then?
