DICE OF PARTICULAR NOTE

this die to the colllection











Dice : MINT1 JOHN TALARICO NUMBER 25000 01 This is the index shot of die # 25000




Dice : MINT16 TSR DRAGON DICE RED 01 I am amazed that these two
survived the years relatively intact

Although I admit ... I had to do a bit of restoration work on the Dragon Dice
Dice : MINT16 GAMESCIENCE TRAVELLER DICE 01




Dice : MINT16 K C CARD CO CELLULOID WITH CUP 01 These two came together in the same auction
The poker dice and cup on the right
are celluloid dice from
K C CARD CO

I suspect the spinner is from K.C. as well
but it is:
Not Celluloid (matching the dice and cup)
and
Dont seem to match the other K.C. Spnners
Dice : MINT16 UNKNOWN PUT AND TAKE SPINNER 01


Several new METAL dice of note were added this month
