    The sterling silver ones, nice pieces of workmanship, but not my cup of tea.

    The white one, nice but no cigar…

    The coloured ones. Puh-leeze, that hurts my eyes!

    I imagine they would be hot in the UK and maybe up North.

    I agree that many other places may be the prime market much more than here but I still like them. I am not particularly a royalist sympathizer but historically it may prove to be of value down the road in the same way that the W(crown)R razors are moreso than the V(crown)R examples of for no other reason than their rarity.

    Charles was in his mid 70s when crowned and as an inevitable result he will not spend as much time on the throne as his mother who was 25 I think when she ascended to the throne. For that reason alone it might be worth getting for posterity.

    Maybe around as long as..."The Crown Victoria".

    But probably not as long as the "Grand Marquis."

    Well the Crown Victoria first came out in 1955 and the Grand Marquis came out in 1975 so if he lasted as long as either of those he would have a pretty good run !!

    Oh, po-LICE!
    You can have everything, and still not have enough.
    I'd give it all up, for just a little more.

    In the 1950s the Crown Vic was a package for other models. It did not become an independent model of its own until 1992. At that time it replaced the LTD.

    I'd love to have anyone of those, but especially the one in sterling silver!
