This style of game is one of my favourites. Coronet only ever made one style of games. Note the unique styles of dragons - no other manufacturer used this design. The tiles are a gorgeous deep orange and are great to play with. The original game came with 146 tiles which included 2 blanks. There are no natural Coronet jokers.
This particular game is a beauty. Extra tiles were added from another partial Coronet game to make this game playable using NMJL rules. There are 4 blanks. They could be stickered to use as jokers but I would prefer to let the new owner make that decision. I also know an engraver that could turn the blanks into more flowers or custom joker tiles, again your choice.
What I particularly like is how beautifully dark the butterscotch tiles are - they remind me of a dark toffee colour. I don't know what it is about this manufacturer's tiles but they handle really beautifully when played with.
The case is in great condition and the original leather handle is really clean with almost no wear. It even has keys! The game is in its original Coronet case with deep burgundy felt lining. Coronet games usually come with swirled burgundy Bakelite racks and this game is no exception - the swirling is particularly nice. Tokens and a pair of dice are included.
