Amazing large block of 12 for sale by Stanley Gibbons. Anyone with more than a million dollars to spare?

They don't appear to be in very good condition.

Modern_who, for such a large block, the condition is exceptionally good.

Modern_who, if you were 179 years old I'm sure you wouldn't look so good.

Pet peeve warning: I hate when multiples are marketed this way. I see it with U.S. revenue multiples all the time. It's not a block of 12. It's a block of 4 and a block of 8.

Is it an attractive and scarce item? Absolutely! But it's NOT a block of 12.

Think how long someone had to look to match the two pieces back together.

That was my first thought too. There's a couple of well known blocks of New South Wales classics that have been 'reunited'.

Nice block of TWELVE. You can play semantics when you pony up a million Pounds.

I have to turn down the opportunity as I don't live in England where the purchaser gets free delivery of the product.
