I am entirely bribeable, but sadly it wouldn't help your cause. I neither decide what goes into LBEs nor pack them, so I remain aloof and even-handed. Buggrit.

Is it just me, or does it look rather like Jeremy Irons?
My next project is a book in which I explore the influence of the music of Beyonce on the writings of J R R Tolkien. It's called "It you write it, you have to put a ring in it"

I've seen one sport for each of the new Merchants' Guild stamps (there may be more!):

$1 Mended Drum: Patrician is looking up a bit
$2 Dysk: Patrician is looking to the right

I think that this is due to printing quality.

I know what you mean as some line are sharper in some and faded in others ... but $1 Dollar ground detail BR corner .. I have one where a line is bent, in all the others it is straight (inc the head sport ).... No scanner I'm afraid
