The picture makes it look as if it is broken off but now I have seen your other pictures I can see it properly.

Something with my eyes or some kind of optical illusion which only seemed to affect me.

That is a great price to start negotiating from.

Not only you Nemmie, it does look odd in Roy's photo, perhaps the result of the elevation and the type of lens in the phone (wide angle, telephoto, etc).

My first thought was that it was a wide one, but I reconsidered.  :-[
I suppose it could be after all - but from a very funny angle.
£90 is a fabby price for a collector,  :o  perhaps not quite so much for a dealer. There would still be some profit it it, I'd think.
These are considerably more scarce than any of the other shapes. Unusual in having such a "domed" top shape too.
