Re: Photo Spad

Hi Stig,


I knew Guynemer was killed during the war. I just wouldn't be able to tell him from say, MvR, in a photo. I guess I could well have included the info about not being able to identify him in the post however.



With my government debauching the currency the photos would probably be a means of maintaining the value of my savings.I probably won't be buying them all though.


Regards,


Clint

Re: Photo Spad

Well Clint

I am pretty confident the guy is Guynemer in the photo. There is another "seller-recommend" close up shot as well, this time for the nice and even sum of EUR 500.

Perhaps you should ask Boris for a hand out??

Cheers
Stig

Re: Photo Spad

Hi Stig,


I'm happy to accept your id, and in fact if ebay had worked as normal when you request the sellers other items in time order I'd also have seen Spads S 122 and S 112 and concluded that given all three machines were early Spad VII aircraft that it was wartime. All embarassment free. But for some reason that didn't work in this case.


If Boris has got any sense (I know, I know) Rishi Sunak will be bidding on the photos himself in order to replace the inflated cash.


Regards,


Clint
