Matchbox Lesney Pub & Inn signs

Pictured left is a Lesney Pub Sign – Rose & Crown

In 1975 Lesney released a range of plated metal Pub Signs, these hard to find emblems are clearly marked Lesney 1975 on the base though sadly collector interest in them at the time was minimal so the range was very short lived making them quite scarce. Measuring 55mm in height and weighing 150 grams there are 14 to collect as follows:

The Britannia   –   The Bull   –   The Cock   –   The Dick Turpin   –   The George & Dragon

The Lion   –   The Mermaid   –   The Pig & Whistle   –   The Rose & Crown

The Royal Standard   –   The Sherlock Holmes   –   The Swan   –   The Unicorn
