    The UV light in my opinion is not a final determination of the originality or age of an item. If the item has been washed with modern detergent which quite commonly happens it will glow under UV. It is a good tool for clues but by no mean does it decide originality.

    I totally agree with Dion. A small one used to check money/stamps etc is fine and cheap to buy. But Kris' suggestion sounds more fun

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thanks for the responses. Ebay may be the place to find one, but just what kind ? Ade says stamps and money. But there seems to be all kinds. Black lights etc.Are they all alike as far as results?

    Urg..looks like you are up early also!

    The best UV lights are the hand held ones for money. They are quite portable. On another note I hardly use mine and its buried somewhere in my stuff.
