When Hilary Page was developing the Miniatures range he wanted true authenticity and a perfect replica of the original brands. In my interview with Derek Allpass, son of Hilary Page's business partner Charles Allpass, Derek recalled clearly the day that Hilary Page declared that he had come to an agreement to make a miniature version of the 'Crown Cap'. Hilary Page was excited to have achieved what many had said would be impossible.
The crown caps were produced in a series of colours for the Kiddicraft Bottles
Silver, Gold, Black, Red, Green, Blue and Yellow.
By the time that 'Gold Seal Miniatures' were launched for the adult collector market, Kiddicraft had mastered printing on caps and so some of the 'Gold Seal Miniatures' have authentic miniature Crown Caps for the brands.
Gold Seal - Guinness
I need confirmation that this an authentic Gold Seal Miniature.
I have only ever seen one, it carries a very detailed label, authentic cap and uses the same bottle as a Gold Seal Carling's Black Label.
