Richard Burton Ephemera

Burton as cultural icon, from Somali currency to Brooke Bond Tea.

Royal Geographic Society Figurine.

Uganda stamp issue.

"Somaliland" (northern Somalia) currency (click to enlarge). 
Nice engraving, but the dates slipped past the fact checker.

Brooke Bond Tea circa 1970. A strong mixture?

Cigar band, circa 1950.

P. and J. Smith's cigarettes, circa 1900.
