    2 round Chancery lane tags are very similar except the wording is slightly different, have to confess Ive never seen a reward offered on an actual key before , I have about 12 Chubb tags , some Milner and a couple of Chatwood

    Do you have anything relating to Dutch safe Co LIPS in London.? I acquired this plaque earlier in the year and canít find anything about an address or office in London. I would love to see your Chubb tags too John, when you have time. There were quite a few addresses relating to their works and offices, but I only have ever seen safe plaques with the Queen Victoriaís and St. Paulís addresses on.

    Youíve got some really nice ones there John! I quite like style of the later ones that are embossed. And you have all the different addresses too. Nice to see the rewards going upwards as well. Re your LIPS ring:- Chubb actually bought the company eventually. I Canít remember when exactly but sometime between 1950s and 70s. You have a really nice collection by the looks of it. The safe company ones are quite few and far between nowadays. Do you specifically collect safe makers key tags? I think they used to make anywhere between £15 and £30 a few years ago, but you have some really rare ones among them so the skyís the limit. Once a collector sets his mind on something, well we both know the feeling, being collectors ourselves. Iíve sort of stopped collecting the keys and tags nowadays and concentrate more on safe plaques. I really wish we both had something to swap (plaques) for the two tags I have, because I would really like them to go to yourself . Do you have any Edwin Cotterill ones? At some point soon Iím going to start selling off my keys on eBay because if I croak it thereís a high chance my daughters will sell them on again for next to nothing. My original intention was to display my safe plaques on the walls and put the keys and tags below each corresponding maker, but I now have all the plaques laying under my bed and Iím waiting for the ceiling downstairs to come through if I donít display them soon 😀.

    I actually have very few reward tags associated with Safe Companies ,maybe 100 or so connected to Scottish National Key Registry & British Key & Property Co - 2 biggest producers , Ive never heard of Edwin Cotterill ,safe maker ? Like yourself Im reducing my collection of other item for the same reason , so just Key Reward / Registry Tags & Antique Advertising Keyrings which hopefully one of my children will find interesting , I never did have any safe plaques but over the years I seem to have amassed a lot of different keys - most likely bought as part of a lot on Ebay just to get a reward tag , problem with selling them is the weight and postage costs ,should have stuck with stamps lol

    Stamps , good one 😀! Most annoying thing about buying several to get one is eBay and PayPal take a bite a 2nd time again when you try and get rid of the ones you donít want !!! Iíd probably be about £2000 better off with postage costs alone if Iíd collected stamps too.
