A lucky buyer picked up these rare verse plaques from Boldon Auctions today for hammer price £170 (each). I left bids but wasn't the under bidder, so interest in the items was strong. If you're the purchaser, well done, they're worth every penny. It would be great to have photos without auction stickers, so please get in touch!
