  2. Hi WhyCollect,

    Thanks for your comment. I was lucky to get this note and not as expensive as those listed in China or else where. If I knew about this earlier, I would have bought two pieces at the same price. Based on current market value, I believe I paid a very reasonable price for this piece.

    Cheers
