Digging through my box 'o mugs, I came across a Frankoma Coconut mug. It's marked 'FRANKOMA T7' on the bottom. I'm too lazy to post a pic right now, but was wondering if anyone has info on this thing. I was thinking about offering it on the website for sale, but have no idea what the value is. The coloring is the same as the War God. As always, it's up for trade if interested.

Hi Matt,
In that recent War God thread this topic came up near the end.

Hey Tiki Matt,
I have the T7's in all of the colors but two . Frankoma made them in all the glazes they had in production at the time; woodland moss, white sand, white, green, blue, prairie, turquoise, tan, yellow. They are referred to as "coconut planters," though I do believe the Trade Winds and the Cultured Pearl used them to serve drinks in. This would be a question for Sabu, who is up on Frankoma and Trade Winds.
As far as value, they are pretty common, and go on ebay for about $5.00.
I would recommend keeping it in your collection.
TT
