    Seeing those reminded me all our Kromer leverpacks were supplied with those attaching the keys. Don’t seem to see that type of jump-ring these days, too expensive probably.I don’t think the Kromer’s were marked with the name like yours are though.

    Hi Mark
    The Blenheim house Ring is not something that would have a lot of interest to me ,being as its for a person rather than a company advertising their wares, the tags in your post I already have and indeed have spares .The Hobbs & Hart and square Chancery Lane tag , I would be interested in

    Are you still after a Chancery Lane and a Hobbs ! They do turn up on eBay now and again so youíll get hold of them eventually. Iím assuming you have the round version of the Chancery Lane one because your specific about the oblong one. If not, there is a round one on eBay at the minute. Itís been on for a while so thereís a good chance they've realised theyíre asking too much. You could possibly haggle them down a bit. Iíll keep an eye open for you and give you a shout next time I see either a Hobbs or a Chancery Lane oblong one listed.

    Another 3 versions of Chancery Lane! Iíve only ever seen the circular and oblong version. Would be nice to see a picture of them when you have time John. The insurance tags average from £3 to five pounds usually on eBay, so I just normally add them to my safe keys when I have a full set of them. Iíve noticed along with the different makers some people actually collect them with the different place names too. Some of the old bone and cellulose tags are interesting too. Have you been collecting the advertising ones for long? Do you have a large collection?

    So is the other round Chancery Lane a thin dog tag type ? I think the reason the Hobbs ones are less common is because the were actually putting the reward tag as part of the bow and adding the number to the key. How many different Chubb tags do you have then John? These are all the actual tags I have other than about half a dozen of the ring type your wanting a swap for.
