I'm looking for a specific Copper, Silver Brass set made by Johnson Products. The sets I'm looking for were changed about 10 years ago to a new version. I'm looking for the sets with the old design Chinese coin, not the newer version. Anyone know where I might be able locate a set?

Thanks

Was this the set where the Chinese coin looks like a plain brass washer and the kennedy half is all silver ?

Below is a picture of the set Johnson currently is making. This is not what I'm looking for. The set I'm looking for has a chinese coin that is solid brass with a round hole in the center. It has 2 chinese symbols in black on each side.

I've got that set. I bought it 28 years ago. For a while I had misplaced it, and purchased a newer set. The gaff on the older set works much smoother, and I am so happy I found it.

Mine isn't for sale, but I wish you luck, and will keep an eye out!

I also have a set that I purchased over thirty years ago. I thought ( and I could be wrong )that this was a Pressley Guitar set. Does anyone know for sure?

I have an old Johnson CSB I would guess about 20 or so, that looks the same as the picture. Also, have an old Sterling set with a brass washer Chinese coin
with 2 chops on it.

Still looking for the set where the chinese coin appears to be a brass washer with 2 chinese symbols on each side.

I recently received an email indicating that perhaps the sets I'm looking for are over 15 years old. If you have an older set and would like to part with it, please PM me.

The GreatDave was trying to sell this exact set to you a few days ago on the Let's Make a Deal page... http://www.themagiccafe.com/forums/viewt......forum=76
