But at least it's a good result from their POV. Another email address has been gathered, yours!

I was actually a fan of their books, I've still got half a dozen of them.
My mother spent a fortune with them and now it's payback time!! >:D

You should get several replies, .....weekly until the end of your life.  ;D

Oh no, they go on well beyond that - at least that was my grandmother's experience in respect of my grandfather's account with them. "This customer is dead" appears not to be a valid reason for removing him from the mailing list. ::)

They were still chasing my Grandad for money several years after he died.

Looks to be identical to that in Reply #97.

Another seller on eBay that we discussed offline has all these other similar up at present. Last piece is silver ...colour? See a little something under the bust on two?

Yes, I think I have a few silver pieces. The gilt has come off on some but others I think probably were made that way.

He does say 'Monnaie ????, Merci de bien vouloir enchérir uniquement si vous souhaitez l'acheter.' ...15 desperate bidders didn't heed!

Fair enough.  But, in my mind if an honest seller becomes aware what exactly they are selling, they should either publish this at the bottom of their ad (as an answer to a question) or edit the ad or withdraw the ad.  If they don't I will treat them with the disdain they deserve >:D

I agree. In my mind, "Monnaie????" means either "coin or token or medal or counter" or "unidentified coin". It does not "mean replica or genuine".

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.
