LOL! @ pigeon sound!
That was a reference to delivery of messages (like mail) or something or another.
Okay here's what we've come up with although I can't now recall (everyone's gone and the notes are awful!) what we had for the Traveling Wilburys so
I'll just give you what I think we had or were going for as far as connections.
The guess is vintage coin stamp or vintage metal press of some sort. Google and youtube produced no results per se but we weren't really sure what we
were looking for so perhaps someone who understand mechanics, etc could make a connection. Albeit we have made a very lame/loose connection. We tried
to focus mainly on the 'cryptic' clues this round with the recording secondary.
1. Wedding: something borrowed something blue...blah blah...sixpence in her shoe.
2. Traveling Wilburys: Can't remember this. Something about traveling minstrels or such. I can call tomorrow.
3. Keno: Payout/coinage/money
4. Master Thief: Counterfeiting/ I wrote down Eloy Mastrelle (sp) escaped Paris after being accused of counterfeiting. Queen Elizabeth pardoned
him and he became her 'coin maker'. He invented/created a machine to press coins.
5. 2 become 1: The act of metal to metal then being 'pressed'.
6. Double Action: Die to die. Two parts to the operation.
7. Before use: Coin must be created before use?
8. Great Navigator: James Cook legend has it that while working in a grocery he was given a coin for payment stamped
SSC (South Sea Co.) after which time he decided to work on a boat and travel.
9. Start or Finish: Coin collecting/grading reference (I don't know this, someone else's suggestion)
10. No key: In 1561 (?) Queen Elizabeth had the Eloy fellow stamp the date (key stamp) on the sixpence (had not been done before that) So, there was
no key prior.
Lame I know but it is a guess!
