Yes, IIRC the expert said the auction estimate would be 2-3,000 pounds. An insurance estimate ought to be double that, ie what one would expect to pay in a shop. Except that some dealers, esp. two I can think of in the UK, would have the leaf with the inscription replaced, and add 10,000 to the price!
