Purdy's Commemorative

Anyone else watching this? Canada Post put out a commemorative FDC to honour Purdy's Chocolates. I believe it follows the US in putting out one for Neilson's??
Only 10k were issued and I did not pre-order mine, assuming that our local PO would have it. No! The initial price was $2.50, one sold on Ebay a day ago for $29 US and is now in the buyers store at $38.50 US buy it now price. I did manage to get one at $10US because it has a coffee stain on the back. Don't have it yet to see how bad it is. I want it for my collection, not for resale so I'll settle for slightly used.

It's been interesting to watch at any rate.

    Wow, and it continues to climb. One just sold for $40 Cdn and there's another still in bidding that is at $36 Cdn. There's also a buy it now one for $44 Cdn. Insane!
    I got mine and I'm most pleased, the slight coffee stain on the back is hardly noticeable and one could almost say it's a chocolate stain. Ha ha.

    I managed to pick up the Beatles stamps as well at our local PO, it came in it's own little booklet / folder thing with the six stamps plus a 4 stamp souvenir sheet. Very spiffy and glad I did not have to order it from the UK.

    I'm not sure how they brought the Beatles issues in, but I'm not complaining. They still have 2 sets sitting there!
