Bond's Money Clip

sruzgarsruzgar Welcome to ScotlandPosts: 1,416MI6 Agent
I need help from some UK members on sourcing this nice prop, although it was not seen in the movie for more than a nanosecond this photo is from the Omega James bond exhibition:

I already painstakingly identified it as being from an English silversmith by the name of Douglas Pell, they sell them directly as well as distribute them through a jewelers throughout the UK.

The letter "f" on the bottom is a date mark from 2005, I can easily get one with a new date mark "h" but I wanted to see if any of you could track down any with "f" date marks, who's up for the challenge?

    Sorry I can't help with the search for one with the f marking, but are there any places online where you can order the current one with this years mark? (or any place to order it really)

    Feel free to pm me, thanks!

    Cheers!

    Wow, cool. Since I carry a money clip, a brown leather Coach version with sewn in magnets, It would be an easy switch. Not all that concerned with the year hallmark.

    Found the website here:

    http://www.douglaspell.com/

    However, the links to items don't work very well. But there is a list of distributors.

    They are in the process of updating the website at the moment.

    I spoke to someone at Douglas Pell and they said they dont have any with "f" date marks however if you contact them in sure they will happily sell you one with this years date mark for under $100
  • Donald GrantDonald Grant U.S.A.Posts: 2,189Quartermasters
    Sounds good to me. I'll contact them directly. As for the "f" hallmark, If I just had to have it and could not find it any other way, I'd take it to a jeweller and have them replace the hallmark. But that's just me. However, I fully understand the fun of hunting the exact items down. It's what makes collecting fun. Knowing what to look for and finding is so much better than just being handed stuff. You found this item for us, but you had more fun because you did the research.

    Thanks Doanld, it took ages to find out the manufacturer, at first I had no idea it was a hallmark which made it more difficult. Ask to speak to Jo and tell then you heard about it from me.

    Thanks sruzgar
    BTW the banknotes in the pictures you posted are Euronotes in denominations of 50 and 100. For anyone who wants to recreate the Omega display. Thanks S for setting us all off on the hunts. Regards

    SRUZGAR,

    Well, I spoke to Jo yesterday and she said Douglas Pell would have a new website called silvershopgifts.com up and running by today. Apparently they have many different money clips so I sent her a picture. Well, the website is up and the correct one is tagged as being in CR. Here is the direct link to the order page:

    http://www.silvershopgifts.com/for-him/money-clips/368/silver-money-clip

    This is of course only for those of you who can stand having the different year hallmark.

    I think I'm going to get one of these for everyday use but still would like to get a hold of one with an "f"!

    I wish Jo could have the London Assay office hallmark some with the 2005 hallmark for us. then again being that this was only seen for a nano second in the film (when bond tips the guy that hands him the envelope with the fake passports) maybe it doesn't matter?

    Do they ship to the states....? I don't see that option.
  • sruzgarsruzgar Welcome to ScotlandPosts: 1,416MI6 Agent
    I ordered mine driectly from Jo, call her on the number provided on the website tell her you know me ;-)
  • Donald GrantDonald Grant U.S.A.Posts: 2,189Quartermasters
    I ordered mine earlier today through the website and got a confirmation email, so I assume they do send to the U.S.

    Sir Miles,

    Yes that happened to me yesterday when I tried the website before it was up and running. I think they may be still working on it or doing maintenance.

    I just spoke to Douglas Pell himself just now...he has been pleasantly surprised with the sales around this piece...so much in fact that he is setting up a CODE just for us Bond fans where we can order anything on their site 1/2 price....YES, including this money clip! I will have the code to post here by Tuesday and their NEW web site will be up by Monday AM....so the clip will be 36.49 pounds which will include shipping to the states.
  • crowe007crowe007 Posts: 49MI6 Agent
    Beautiful! Thats an amazing deal, talk about great customer service (any chance of getting some Omega's for 1/2 price? lol)

    Cheers!

    Im glad everyone likes this money clip ;)
  • VilliersVilliers Posts: 21MI6 Agent
    Hi, first time poster, been entertained, instructed and informed by the site for some time though! Don't recognise the credit card on top of the money clip, looks like a "Visa Signature"? Is it a USA only card? Not sure that we, in the UK, have these! Any info would be appreciated. Also, when Bond hands over his card in CR in the Bahamas isn't it black in colour? Any ideas on what type of card that may be?
  • Donald GrantDonald Grant U.S.A.Posts: 2,189Quartermasters
    Too late for me for the code discount since I've ordered mine in advance of this new information. Perhaps if I order another for display.

    Any idea when the site will be up and running (and when the flood of orders can go thoguh...lol)

    Cheers!
  • sruzgarsruzgar Welcome to ScotlandPosts: 1,416MI6 Agent
    I shot them an email to see whats happening with the website, I don't know if The Mantis has the code yet.

    Donald, I wouild contact them and see if they will give you a discount, or another money clip ;)
  • The Bond ExperienceThe Bond Experience Newtown, PAPosts: 5,472Quartermasters
    OK David. If you type in the code 1234DP it will halve all our prices. We would appreciate it if you will tell everyone that if they use this code, anything can be bought at half price in our range. We are still working on the postage costs for the USA. We can always quote this to you by email.



    Kind regards

    Update from Douglas Pell:

    "Sorry if you try again you can open the site. We had minor launch problems and withdrew the website for correction. You will see a promotional code box. If you type in the code 1234DP it should halve all our prices. This is a brand new idea starting this week and we hope it to be very successful. What we have not managed to do is work out the postage rates yet for the USA. We are working on this but for the time being we can quote by email"

    MUST HAVE POSTED THIS AT THE SAME TIME AS THE MANITS ;%

    I cant seem to access the page, either way I'd need them to work out the shipping to Canada (should be the same as shipping to the US I'd assume) Could someone please pm me the email address?

    Cheers!
