015020_JUL66_LS4_CIA_0085

World Cup fever is taking over the web, but we’ll keep our coverage here to the strictly nostalgic, as with this July 1966 Tax Disc Mug.

The significance of the date is, of course, England’s historic (and unlikely to be repeated anytime soon0 World Cup win, when they beat Germany 4-2. If you needed that explanation of the date then this product probably isn’t for you, but the same seller also has more mugs with other culturally significant dates. Choose from May 1977 (Star Wars released at the cinema), June 1976 (heatwave in Britain) and August 1963 (the Great Train Robbery).

The mugs cost £9 from Retrophenia’s shop on Not on the High Street.
