Re: Vintage Bond Props

It's interesting, I think, to see what looks like some variance in the sizes of the plaques onscreen, meaning variances within a denomination of plaque (non-uniform plaque sizes).

Managed to find out that the Bond style plaques were produced in April 1961 and the later style (Des A) ones not until March 1978 which is what we thought, still nice to get it confirmed though.

Re: Vintage Bond Props

There are a few "lower" priced £100s on ebay now if anybody would care to take a look. Easy to find.............
A chance to own a piece of history and you never know, maybe one day the list of the ones sent to the film studio will surface.

Re: Vintage Bond Props

Wow, Bondcollectibles are selling a £1 jeton on ebay (as rare) and it's at $224 at the moment!!!
And there's me been giving them away as gifts when a plaque set bought, boy am I stupid!!?
I'm happy somebody is making a profit as I've tried to leave something "on the bone" but not sure I agree on the marketing although it may be because I'm obviously doing it wrong. I'd rather be as honest as I can.
I suppose he may not know there are many so it isn't that rare (I sell the full set for £60) but...............
Hope it's nobody on here bidding on it though.

Just seen the listing  ajb007/lol  ajb007/lol  ajb007/lol  ajb007/lol   CRAZY!!!!

Re: Vintage Bond Props

Seems he did the same thing with a £10 plaque too, screen used AND seen! Hmm.
He's just bought another set from me which he'll do the same thing with.
Making a profit is all good and well (and I have no problem with that) but the description isn't actually honest or is it just me.
A reputable dealer but still..................

Re: Vintage Bond Props

Yeah, some of these very well could have been SCREEN USED AND SEEN but it would definitely be misleading to say these were on the table when Sean Connery said that iconic line for the first time.

A bit like when another chap had taken grains of sand from the Palymra Villa and said they were screen used from Thunderball!  ajb007/rolleyes

Re: Vintage Bond Props

It is indeed possible that they were screen seen but it is misleading to say that they were as nobody knows which were actually used, as you say. They are all screen used as they are exactly the same and were made at the same time as the ones that would have been used. There were 1000 made in 1961 incidentally.
The Thunderball analogy is a good example but again, they COULD have been used.....haha.
Thanks for the comment

I watched a seller dig up sand at several spots on one of our Bond tours--not knowing it was meant for resale. They are indeed authentic sand samples from those locations. I don't remember "screen used" verbage in their listings, but others have since followed suit--although not during my tours.

I have marble, shells and more, taken by permission from Palmyra, but I'm not sure they were seen on screen. ajb007/smile

Re: Vintage Bond Props

Came across this image, if I am not mistaken, they are £1,000 Le Cercle plaques on the table?

Great photo.
As much as I would love to say that yes they are Le Cercle £1000s it looks like it says £1000 (or £5000 actually) at the bottom which is very similar to this plaque from Crockfords although I could be wrong. Only seen the £100 though not a £1000 or £5000.

Still a great photo though.

Thank you  ajb007/martini
I must admit they do look very much like the Crockfords plaques.

Re: Vintage Bond Props

It's the first one that came to mind when I saw the photo.
I've seen the lower values but not a £5000 in that style. Definitely right time period (early 60s).
Thanks for showing as it's still a great photo and admittedly it would have been brilliant if it was the Le Cercle £1000 plaque.

Re: Vintage Bond Props

That is a great photo, not seen that one before, circa 1963 looking at the case with the gold sovereigns etc.

Any idea what the occasion was? Some sort of film tie in publicity?

I'm thinking the girl -- who looks familiar though I can't place her -- is holding Odd Job's derby so I'd say '64 or later.
Either way, that is one helluva photo.

Re: Vintage Bond Props

Thorough tangent but in investigating the photo, I happened to notice the set decorators for both DN and TB used the same shade over the gaming table ...

Well seen, nice link.

Re: Vintage Bond Props

Agree, nice link  ajb007/martini

I suspect the photo is part of a magazine advert, no idea what it was advertising though.

I'm thinking illustration to support an article on Bondmania in the run-up to TB.

Has a VERY similar vibe to this staged shot of Desmond Lewellyn in Naussau.

Re: Vintage Bond Props

The Thatched Barn £100 is identical to the Crockfords £100 but for the name obviously.....................

Re: Vintage Bond Props

Personally I think there are some higher values hidden underneath in this clip so...............
A publicity photo from the same era/film perhaps?

A fellow UK collector alerted me to this so, thanks Angelo.

Re: Vintage Bond Props

There look like 2 higher values so either £500 and £1000 or maybe £1000 and £5000.
Anyone manage to see the denominations?
The £50 oval and £100 rectangular are easy but the 2 higher values.............??
As he leaves the table it looks like a white £1000 so maybe the pink ones are £500 as they are smaller.

Doh, I've just "caught up" as the replica set is probably a pretty good representation although it still doesn't show a £5000 which is what the publicity shot looks like (to me). I suppose they could be the £500s?
