[TS2] TES V: DR Books and Telephone Book.

At last, the time hath come to whisk away the bland appearance of the telephone book when used by children. Huzzah! One can now have the gorgeous books imported straight from the Nordic realm of Skyrim from the land of Tamriel.

[TS2] The Virginia Gazette DR Newspaper.

Huzzah! Another item in my “Colonial Williamsburg Project” knocked down! I used Sunni’s default replacement newspaper, due to the fact it’s a fixed version (and not the broken one on MTS). I thought it safer to go with that than going with one that didn’t work for all expansions and was broke.

History of The Virginia Gazette:
“The original Virginia Gazette, the first newspaper ever published in Virginia, was established by William Parks, who printed the first four-page edition on August 6, 1736. Its motto was ‘Containing the freshest Advices, Foreign and Domestic.’ …In 1743, Parks built a paper mill in Williamsburg; he purchased the raw material to create newsprint from Benjamin Franklin. The paper was published, successively, by Parks (1736-1750), William Hunter (1751-1761), Joseph Royle (1761-1765), Alexander Purdie and John Dixon(1766-1775), Dixon and Hunter (1775-1778), and Dixon and Thomas Nicolson (1779-1780). The last issue was published on April 8, 1780,after which point the paper relocated to Richmond, Virginia’s new capital.

[TS2] 18th Century Pewter DR Dinnerware.

This is a rendition of my old DR pewter set. I didn’t like the textures very much as I thought I did. So, I redid the dinner plate and added extras. You can only have one DR of the plate, shaker, and silverware!

Included:
– Shaker
– Dinner plate
– Silverware

[TS2] 18th Century DR Currency (Register).

Pictured below is the back of New Jersey’s “One Shilling, Six-Pence” or “Eighteen Pence” colonial note.” Its front reads: “This Bill of One Shilling and Sixpence Proclamation is emitted by a Law of the Colony of New Jersey, passed in the Fourteenth Year of the Reign of his Majesty King George the Third. Dated March 25, 1776.” You can only have one default replacement for currency!

edo_5bts25d_18th_century_dr_currency_n-j-_1776_eighteen_pence_cover

History: “An emission of £100,000 in legal tender bills of credit had been planned since May 10, 1768 but never obtained the consent of the English king. Following the outbreak of the Revolution, the issue was emitted as proclamation money. The notes were made legal tender on September 20, 1776 and recalled by January 1, 1780. David Rittenhouse engraved and signed the left border of the front of the £6 note. Printed in Burlington by Isaac Collins. The front of the notes are in red and black with the two highest denominations in red and blue. The back contains a sage leaf nature print rather than the engraving Collins user on the previous emission. Printed on paper containing mica flakes with a ‘New Jersey’ watermark.” – http://www.coins.nd.edu/ColCurrency/CurrencyText/NJ-03-25-76a.html
