I'll have a go - will gladly lend them out for scanning should I win them.

I'm winning on both items at present - I'd be happy to get them shipped direct to you Frank if I'm successful. Limited caithness in my collection, but as I said a fantastic aid to all collectors.

I've assumed that I'll send these details on to Frank and hey presto everyone will have access. Having thought about matters a little more perhaps it might help if I volunteered to sort the Caithness stuff out.

Having read a couple of other threads it's clear there are enough demands on Franks time/resources already......

I'll see what the outcome of the auction brings....

Hi cfosterk,

I had both guides on my watchlist - but now I won't bid against you. I wisk you good luck - and if you win: if you have them sent to me, I'll do the scanning for Frank - I know what he wants - have scanned the Caithness Reflections Magazines for him already.

Best regards - Wolf

For the past year or so I've been keeping a record of what the Ltd Ed's go for on Ebay/Ebid/Auction Houses if that's of any use to anyone.

Amazing info - moral of the story seems to be sell through a regional auction house, buy on ebay...

Would be great to link with colour pics...

Lots of people buy on eBay and sell on eBay. Remarkably some do it with poorer pictures than the first auction, even blurry out of focus instead of multiple clear views  :huh: others drop parts of the description so Russian Murano becomes Possibly Murano with a price hike in the starting price. (e.g. but at $6 list at $12 and sell). Others just spend the whole day scouring for non-identified items that they recognise. It is a bizarre world at times.

Ah but Frank, isn't the entire world bizarre these days?  Isn't that what adds.... how shall we put it... texture and interest to our humdrum lives??
