A big thank you to all that visited and re-homed. We sold about 90% of the collection. As stated the policy was a two month period for collectors.
The prop agents have now taken delivery of their items, so we will soon see them appearing on TV and cine.
The hope is the losses made can be recovered by the next stage as much as possible. As if I went in a time machine back 20 years and got my money back.
Please can you pass information here to anybody that might be interested.
The remaining 10% will be offered to eBay and other specialized UK auction houses.
