      We started publication in 1966 – so this year is our 50th anniversary!

    On p.54 of the current issue – Top of the Lots – the main illustration is described as an armorial crest. This is quite incorrect as it is a Coat of Arms. In fact a crest is not present at all which if it were would be a Lion standing on the Crown This is elementary and whoever wrote the description (even without being an heraldic expert) should know the difference between an Armorial and a Crest, (the latter being the emblem on the top alone as the name implies) – especially when writing in a specialist magazine !

      Many thanks for your comments regarding the story in this month’s magazine. The description for the news item was taken from the auctioneer’s catalogue.

    I have many vintage post cards and birthday cards from my family members. Pre WW 1 and earlier.
    Could you please recommend someone that could advise me of the value and sense of history.
