Letter from me to confirm how where and when i bought the item.
I paid just over £1000 for this item (inc fees) and have been the proud owner for the past seven years. Unforunately the time is right for me to let someone else appreciate them.
The reserve is less than this and this is an item that can only appreciate in value and makes a great investment.
The glasses are in the exact same condition as when purchased. They are damaged as a nose support is missing and they are a bit mis-shaped. They could be restored but i've kept them in original condition.
A fantastic opportunity to own a valuable piece of memorabilia.
Item will be sent well packed by special next day delivery.
Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. I am a fan / collector
