Hi John Worner,
That’s interesting to hear about the iron on your wool shed.
Can you show us a photo of the trade mark stamp and any wording on it, please, and we’ll see what we can figure out. It will be interesting to see in any case.
If you like, you can email a photo to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll post it for you. Alternatively you can register as a member of the forum and post the photo yourself via the ‘Add Attachment’ button.
Hi Paulyk Have done a lot of re-roofs on houses in NZ and come across a heap of Vincent Best stamps with the crown. The sheet lengths lead me to believe these were imported from the UK or Australia in earlier manufacturing days
Hello. We are fixing my parents hay shed, which is the oldest in their district in ballarat, vic, and has been confirmed via a leader newspaper article as being built prior to 1887 , (article from Leader newspaper, 1887, when property was up for sale) .. the shed has Lysaght Queens head galv flat sheet which has been used to flash bearers around the tin roof. We believe it's the English version though, as we read that all Lysaght galv flat sheet was brought from England at that time. I wanted to attach a pic, but can't see how to. My email is email@example.com. We are wanting to get confirmation of this, and an indication of it's worth, and if there's a buyer's market for it? Hope you can help xx
