Spot the Difference # 137; Lacon’s Great Yarmouth

Yesterday was one of the best attended, liveliest and seriously interesting meetings for label collectors in London for a long time. The auction of labels from Des Clarke’s collection raised a substantial 4 figure sum and early examination of the latest acquisition by the society caused many a ripple of excitement. I am always pleased to discover a small variation that I was previously unaware of, so here are two XXX Ale labels from Lacon’s of Great Yarmouth and I guess you could pick them both up for a pound.
