It's possible! Certainly that number is what was handed out, not necessarily all that were produced. Someone may have gotten an extra from eBay or through a trade, or even as a gift from the shop.
But to get it you will need a shed load of money to buy it.


Indeed, the last one to appear on eBay went for £128 :(

Oh, I know about them! The only triangle I want is the Brass Bridge 2004. I am trying to collect all the 2004 stamps ( please don't remind me about the skunk stamp).

Yes there were slightly more than 100 produced. The shop excess were given to me, and went on the 90-LBE competition covers. Indeed we were actually one short for that project, and a kind fellow member (who sadly no longer frequents these hallowed halls) donated one that they had "by mistake".

So he told me when he received his purchased one, it was actually two together in a pile (as they were perforated that way and two ended up stuck together). So as he had it without technically purchasing it (buy one get one free on RNP's? :) ) he kindly added it to the cause.

Whilst this breaks my own guidelines there was also a strip of 3 put up for auction on the other place by Colin

I bought mine on ebay cost £180. :cry:
I've no idea why I missed buying it but I've only ever missed one 'special offer' since.

A fair number of us have one of those to swap/sell.
The problem is that we a tend to be the people who are only missing the really rare stuff that no one has spare.

I could trade my commons to them for their GCTS though.

The same people have GCTS coming out their ears. I have a few 100 (this is after buying everything you can for CGTS at least twice) and sent of my spare commons last week for another 270ish.
How do you think we get so many sports, loads of LBEs.

That's right! I forgot about that cover. And I can't for the life of me remember if I have one.

20 minimum :shock:

Plus Frank the Elder buys LBEs. Not as many but he always seems to get more than his fair share of sports.

There were 3 of them in total, I don't have a clue who has them now. If it helps, it's the lower of the two covers in the image below:

And from checking back, there were 105 RNPs issued. The 106th was given to me by Isobel as mentioned, with the other two for the covers coming from the aforementioned donation and from our own collection.
