Is this Whitefriars
« on: May 04, 2013, 10:09:29 AM »
It's larger than the other 9308 weights I've bought (and given as gifts), and I think the base is different - it 'tapers' for approx a quarter-inch before becoming flat; also, the bubbles seems smaller and there's no large central one (which of itself isn't an issue as some don't have them).

Yes - it does.

I didn't look at it properly and thought it was just some sticky crap from a label.

Thanks.

Yeah... I'd never heard of 'em before.

And I just looked again at the photo - with my glasses on I can now clearly see that mark.

What a doof I am to not have looked more carefully before posting.

I took those photos a minute or so after it had arrived today, and I thought 'this doesn't seem right for WF', but only ever having bought 4 9308 weights as gifts I'm not an expert.

It had various bits of paint and crud on the body, and there really is some sticky label-glue-type crap on the base (which doesn't show on the photo) - which I didn't clean it because it came complete with a smashed dish (see attached pic) and after cleaning-up the powdered glass which had spilled when I opened the package I just wanted to file a claim with the eBay seller.

Oh well, such is life.

With the larger bubbles, that one looks quite like the 9308s that I've previously bought.

Am I right in assuming they have low value?

Sold an Arctic blue a couple of weeks ago for 8.00.
More common with the large central bubble except ruby which is are hard to find with the central bubble.
Forget the Webb one gave that  away to the Charity shop  :)
