I need a paperweight!!
« on: July 03, 2006, 03:29:08 PM »
Hello All,
Apologies if I am in the wrong section or you don't normally do this sort of thing!  
I am married to a slightly younger Paul Ysart (grandson of) who turns 40 this August.  I would love to buy him a PY paperweight but dont know where to start.  Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks
Danielle

Hi Danielle,

eBay is as good as any. Currently listed:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=230002761331
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=190004235159

Some sellers add Paul Ysart's name to Caithness weights

but Paul did not make it.
