I just ordered a set of six (with the green banded top rim) today at 6:07pm! {;-)
Victor Mugs, Vintage New Old Stock (1987)
Item# GS6 , Color and Quantity: Green Stripe Set of 6
$36.00

I sure hope they pack them well as they're coming to Canada. I believe they'll be shipped by USPS Priority Mail International large flate rate box, so $100 of insurance is included 'free'.
The mugs were very well packed with lots of small bubble wrap around each mug & a layer of shreaded paper on the bottom & also surrounding the bubble wrap!



P.S. I was able to substitute two of the green banded mugs for two of the last remaining NOS (New Old Stock) plain white mugs from Jay Kravitz's website Victor Mugs, & also Victor Mugs eBay store.

These prized Victor Mugs will be cherished & have an honored place in my home.
I just had to share my incredible fortune & opportunity on purchasing a rare piece of American history, but sadly an extinct product.

Just received my EXCELLENT  "V"  for Victory (I'm calling them) Victor Mugs today at 1:43pm, 4 minutes under 53 hours total delivery time!

Very happy!!! {:-D



P.S.  I wanted to purchase these Victor Mugs ever since CG member lifeandpeace posted about them on Sun Sep 11, 2011, 4:15pm., but for one reason or another (the main one being the total cost including shipping {couldn't afford it at the time}) was what killed it for me.
But in hindsight I/you can't afford to not buy these while you still have the chance & the opportunity as the purchasing window is getting very small & will disappear forever very soon.

P.P.S.  In my telephone conversation with Jay on Tues the 24th, I asked if he ever asked the 4th generation Victor plant/sales manager Mr. Nelson McKee what it would take if at all possible to start up production again & do a limited run or a special edition or commerative edition Victor Mug.
Jay said he indeed did ask, & it would take an order of 25,000 minimum. I said to Jay that we have over 75,000 Coffeegeek members, & if one out of three ordered just one., they could do it! {;-D

Craig, those look EXACTLY like those used in diners I requested while performing on the road in the 70's and early 80's. That stripe at the top.
I have Intelly and Primo mugs. The Intelly weighing in at 1lb 2oz. As it holds 8oz, I have to think the Victor is still oz for oz champ!
The Primo is in the dishwasher.....hiding.

I WANT A VICTOR!!!!

Wow, on ebay, he wants $40 for 4 of the green stripe.Are they cheaper for Canada due to the $$ difference?

No, they actually cost me slightly more Rob due to the fact that the exchange rate on Mon July 23rd when I purchased them was more for a US dollar.
The cost of the mugs was $37.50 versus $36.00, & the shipping was $45.00 for a US cost of $82.50. The Paypal converted price was $86.22 Canadian. Paypal's cut is an additional 2.9%. Paypal's exchange rate ot the time: 1 Canadian Dollar = 0.956938 U.S. Dollars.

The cheapest place is the Victor Mug website.
Not including shipping, the cost of a 6 mug set is only $6.00 per mug then.

Another view.

lifeand peace said: "(6 ounces with a touch of room, 7 to the absolute rim)."

I measured all mine & I get 6 ounces or 150 ml to the absolute brim.

I just found four of the Victors which I like better than the similar but thinner walled HLC marked diner mugs I bought from a local diner about 15 years ago.  I understand these are Homer Lauglin Co. mugs but I've never seen this particular logo: HLC on top, USA on bottom and a design in the middle.

Out of curiosity, I called HLC today and found out these mugs are their 300 model.  If you can't find a Victor or just want a new, well-made diner style mug, maybe these'll do ya.

An HLC Model 300:

What a blast from the past! My husband and I acquired a six-pack of Victor mugs from the factory when we married 30 years ago. Four have survived. I include a photo to show older model may be a little different if you look at the attachment of the handle to the body.
