Hve you considered using the model instead of the City of Carcassonne tile?

The meeples would not fit well on the model. The model lives on my display shelf along with the two towers and complete set of Phantom boxes.

Beautiful! Do you do anything to treat them and make them shine like that?

WOW - this coin is enormous!   ;D

Great finds Scott - Thanks for sharing them!

One of my other hobbies is currency collecting, so the intersection between that and Carcassonne could not be resisted. This is the beginning of another collection.

All of these photos are immediately after opening, so I haven’t done anything to them. The ones that are shiny were well-cared for by their previous owners.

All of the coins are 31mm in diameter.

Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons are GO?
It looks a lot like the Thunderbirds, but i'm guessing from the same era?

Gerry Anderson had several supermarionation shows over the years.

It was the series that Gerry Anderson created immediately after Thunderbirds. It ran from 1967-1968.
They made some significant changes to the marionets in this series; most notably their heads were well proportioned with the rest of their body.

This series took a much darker tone that the other Gerry Anderson series, with frequent onscreen murder.

The series was rebooted in 2005; which was Gerry Anderson's last production before his death.  It wasn't well received, but it was mishandled by ITV.
I think it did well to capture the essence of the original and progress it in other areas.
