Do you doubt that this is a rare valueable collector's item ?

Perhaps short notes like this have had an effect ?
Dear andyirwin01,

Besides being common as the dirt they were trailed across, what is it that makes you think that anyone would pay you more than even a fraction of 1 for this partial booklet ?

TRAILED ???

Could he be a displaced Aussie ?

Back from sunny Cornwall this afternoon (I am joking of course) and I couldn't help skimming through some of the entries over the week or so I have been away ....

Time for a little reminder of best practices I think.

1. An eBay URL only needs to be inserted up to the item number (makes it more readable).
2. Much more importantly - can you load up an image of the item (and some information about why you are bringing it to the attention of the forum) as these disappear after 90 days so anyone reading this thread after the expiry date (e.g. new members) will have no idea what it is about.
3. In the case of this particular item it would have been good to have the title (new and revised) also included as for example I have no idea what it was originally to cause the comment that it has changed.

Basically - try to include as much information as possible - doesn't have to include names if you prefer not to - although this has never bothered me).

Thanks all
