Again, speaking for myself, when it comes to Deluxe Limited Editions, I generally only ever consider Fine Copies in Fine Slipcases (but may buy a Very Good to Near Fine Copy as a temporary copy if I came across a good deal), so a Fine Later Number (for me) would be much preferred to a Very Good/Near Fine Lower Number (with possible exception of copy numbers 1 to 5 of some of the editions).

Speaking for myself, I actually do (for some unknown reason within) like a lower number and am indeed prepared to pay more for lower numbers.

When I started collecting, I convinced myself that the number did not matter, but over the years, I became more and more attracted to the lower numbers. Just part of the collecting obsession for me I suppose.

What I have tended to do is to buy any copy of a limited edition to have one in the collection and then try to get a lower number (and sell the original purchase).

Hi Trotter,

I may not be remembering correctly, but I think that at one point, David Miller had the original. And I think he subsequently sold it on. But I may not be correct on this.

Indeed I have a (very convincing) copy of the same signed note that was included (as a free token) with a book I purchased a few years ago.

Ahh Yes, the rare and elusive 1972 Seventh - Sixteenth - First Impression of the Third First Edition 1937.

Don't think I have one of those in my collection at the moment. Will most likely bid a small fortune to acquire this one.....
