Right-ho... half way there! I'm having a beer break!

I have to say that the Photographs are of varying quality, and it would be really nice to have a photograph of each Type, front and back, in decent conditions.
If anyone fancies making a thread that could do just that, it would be doing me, you, and BFTB a huge favour.
Also, I realise that the photographs are from different sources, largely from here or ebay, so a big thank you to anyone whose photograph I have nicked... it was all done in the name of research!
