Topic: Dr No, James Bond "style" plaques. Le Cercle/Les A screen used props.

These are of the same type used in the first James Bond film and even better, in the baccarat scene where he speaks the immortal words, "Bond....James Bond" so there must be some "old timers" out there that would like to own a set of these, or even just a £50 or £100 maybe. They were borrowed from the casino so obviously I have no idea which ones were used in the scenes and which weren't but maybe one day............I believe I can say screen used and prop in the correct context though, yes?
Drop me a line if interested. I have lower grade ones too. Not available anywhere else in the world (well maybe the odd set here and there but no more than 2).

Welcome to AJB. 

I can vouch for these and the seller.  They are 100% genuine.  The first Bond props from the first film, it’s amazing they survived and turned up all these years later.

Thanks for that but for those that don't know me................ I'm a collector of casino items that just happened to stumble across these mythological items so would like to get them to the right homes so..........Bond collectors, plaque collectors, anybody with interest for a piece of history. Thanks for your kind words though, appreciated.

Thanks Texas, appreciated. I don't really collect plaques per se (unless older UK) so I don't have any of those and to be honest, the "new" Playboy just doesn't "do it" for me, sorry to say. Again, thanks for the welcome though.

The good Dr. is a good man and a friend. I purchased some plaques from him a few years back and again this month, along with beautiful chips and jetons. He is a kind man and a trusted seller on eBay and off. You will not be disappointed!

Thanks Matt, appreciate that. The ones from years ago were not Bond ones, just in case. Only just found the Bond ones which you are now the proud owner of, so glad you are happy with them. Thanks again.

Very nice, trades are possible. I think it's ammonia from the "newer" ones not formaldehyde incidentally. Seems that was mainly used in the lunette type. Yes, not nice but "nature of the beast" with older plaques.

Sorry NFS but thought the 0007s would go down well here so...............quick "show off" as requested.
The £500 was used on the Mills' yacht so is stamped with "Milamba" and pretty awful due to the sea air I'm assuming. At least it survives!!

Anyone know what the "Milamba" reference means? Name of the Monaco yacht, perhaps?

Re: Dr No, James Bond "style" plaques. Le Cercle/Les A screen used props.

I believe so, still exists but under a different name now. No, sorry, don't know. First part is from his name (obviously) Mil...amba?

Re: Dr No, James Bond "style" plaques. Le Cercle/Les A screen used props.

Not many of the top ones left now so only average ones at a cheaper rate.
I have 3 or 4 more orders to fill first and then will be listing on ebay the better singles left and average sets, all with faults. Hopefully some of you will be interested enough to buy. Still great to look at but the backs mainly suffer from ink spots/blisters. Each set is different.

Just to echo some of the previous comments, the Dr is a true gent and knowledgable about his subject. These plaques are superb and are a valuable link to one of the most famous scenes in film, let alone Bond history.

As Matt says you won’t be disappointed. If anyone is on the fence about getting one or more then just go for it, these won’t be around for long and you’ll regret it later.

Thanks for that, I appreciate all of your comments. Enjoy your plaques.
