Don't be tempted!!!
Just in case any of you are tempted, don't go bidding on this one on flea bay. Its an original envelope with postage stamps which has been totally ruined by some idiot who thought adding a really bad looking eagle and swastika would increase the value of the item. I don't know why I am posting this thread as I am sure most of you would not go near it. But if by posting the thread I save one person from spending good money on what now amounts to rubbish then its a worthwhile thread. I know many people during the Occupation of the Island thought that these envelopes would be worth a lot of money after it was all overm unfortunately too many people thought this and so there are still lots around, but ruining them in an attempt to deceive is not good in my book.
All the best from Jersey,
