    However, it is one which need not fool you if you study this original example from my collection.

      Ade could you please tell me what would a normal price be for such thing? I found this one for GBP175. It seems original to me but i'm not an expert so i thought to ask you

      It is original, but the price, for me, is far too high.

      Cheers, Ade.
