New Kids on the Block

Robert Messenger week on Sommeregger's Sammelsurium is slowly drawing to a close. I was thinking hard of how to make this a fun entry. I came up with the idea to put you, dear readers, to think a little.

I got these from a friend. Now it's the old guessing game - your turn please: // the solutions are on the bottom of the page, so don't scroll too fast // ==> & let us know how high you scored. Ok you are ready - steady - GO!

  2. I was only able to guess the 3000's. The case for the Media looks very impressive -- two locks? Congratulations on your Empire no. 2, I've always found that they look very impressive and mysterious.

  3. I got 5... 2, 3, 6, 7, 8.

    I thought the Continental was an Erika and had no clue about the Hermes Media.

  4. I was able to guess four brands correctly, definitely couldn't identify specific models other than 1 of the Hermes. Nice challenge

  6. Only 1 out of 8 for a novice like me - the Hermes 3000. Case 5 looked like my Halda case - WRONG!!

  7. Just two- 50s and 60s Hermes 3000 because they were the most obvious.
    The black Hermes Media is stunning.

  8. OK, I got three, the two Hermes and the Olympia Traveller DeLuxe. The Empire 2 looks amazing. I recognise Klein Adler features.
