Simon's had some great finds this month. The Chinese coin is from the Ch'ien Lung Dynasty 1736-96, also nice little personal item with the fragment of gold spectacles still with tinted glass in. Apparently these were the first type of mass produced glasses in the 18thC, and it was thought clear glass was bad for the eyes. Nice cast bronze French revolution 72nd Regiment Cuff Button and tasty cufflinks too. Also a couple more Sun up bottles oh and has anyone got any ideas on the bead below?

Great finds and nice pics too. Top stuff Si..
