Attention – collection stolen!

Article about: It is sad, but true. Next week I will return this subject for more details, but for now just a short announcement. Last weekend the entire collection from my friend Philippe Gillain from Bel

    Sounds a bit odd to me. Has he got money problems? A collection of that size would take some considerable time to move without someone noticing something. Sorry to sound a bit sceptical, but nothing surprises me these days.

    What happened to the theory of the Russian "Hit Squad" being responsible ? That's down the drain now ?

    I had told a couple of members here, two guys with large Hefty garbage bags could clean all that out in less than 20 minutes. Back a van up to the door, out it goes.

    Sit on it for a year....things cool off, start moving it.

    Two guys, 20 minutes. No way!! It is obvious you do not know about the
    situation. The collection was at the top floor of the house and the two stairs
    to get there, are not the easiest. Nor do you have any idea about the size
    of the collection, even lots of it already was sold. I do not defend any person
    about this. I just informed collectors about the theft, so the word was spread.

    I do not have more information as what was told in the beginning. Mr. Gillain
    himself should come up with information! I noticed collectors about the theft.
    The rest is up to him, mr. Gillain!
