Someone I know wondered if these old Victor coffee mugs had leaded glaze?  If they do, does it really matter??

I don't think they would of sold hundreds & hundreds upon thousands of these mugs to the armed services men/women from WW2 of the Navy, Armed forces, etc & Korea up to the end of production in 1987 do you??, & of course every restaurant, diner in the country that bought them?..

The thing is, Craig, no one knew about that stuff in the 40's, 50's, and 60's.  Or if they did, it wasn't a concern.  At 62, I'm not overly concerned but maybe some younger members would be.

Point is, it doesn't matter how many they sold, lead in glazing was pretty common once upon a time.

Here's a link to what I was sent which got me to wondering about my Victor mugs:

As I said, I'm not overly concerned.  Matter of fact, I just bought two more Victor mugs today!

Yep, I saw those & all the rest on & for an eBay Victor Mug search.

P.S. I amended the above link to include the "Include description" check mark box, for of course more & usually better results.

It's funny.  I've got (or will have shortly) six of these Victor mugs and four of the Homer Laughlin 300 series mugs.  I'm the only person who likes these diner mugs in our household (my wife prefers a big stainless thermal mug).  So can someone explain why I continue to look for even more Victor mugs??

Stupid internet!  ;o)

I'm the kind of guy that can't walk past any coffee mug without picking it up and testing its feel and weight

Craig and Rob,

Sweet posts.

I've been out of the country for a couple weeks. Yes, there seems to be something magical about these mugs. I'm glad you were able to acquire some. I enjoy mine every day.

I'll have to re-measure mine for capacity. Perhaps I got some variants.

So now I have 10.  I found some in the 7.5 oz size (they made both 6 and 7.5 oz mugs).  And all I needed was one...
