I got this one for GBP175 though. Merp_shop had listed it for 250 give or take but he accepted my proposal.

I think it is a fair price but I'm not 100% sure.

That was me. I entered a max of 378 around 2 days before the end of the auction. I thought I could pick it up for around 300 or so. Still can't believe somebody was prepared to overbid me. Next time I'll enter my max bid in the last minute or so maybe that will work better....

Looking at the bid history, there were two bidders prepared to pay over 250. The second bidder that dropped out may well have been aware of the Thorntons copy. That or a shill bidder of course.

Hi Michael,

welcome to TCG!

I will check if I have spares at home tonight, but I don't think so offhand.

One other thought on the appraisal - it is less important to get an appraisal now, as they will pay you the value at the time of loss, not at the time the policy was taken out. They leave it to you to guess (or get an expert opinion) on the value of your collection and choose how much you insure it for. Then, at the time of loss, if the official appraisal (based on the documentation you have for the books you lost) comes in lower than your policy, they pay the lower value. If it comes in over your policy amount, they pay the policy amount and you are out of luck for the difference.

So basically, your best bet is to insure your collection for how much it will appraise for when you lose it.

Again, the insurer may well ask you to get an appraisal when you get the policy.
