I've happily purchased a few vintage Star Wars lots from the Vectis Auctions in the UK, as I previously I mentioned in this
Vectis gained quite a bit of publicity from their Palitoy Auction
Sadly concerns about Vectis seem to be rife concerning their sale of deceptively graded and obvious reproduction items? The matter was discussed in this
recent RS thread!
I emailed Vectis directly pointing out my observations on the issue and then made this
query on their own forums! I've now waited over a month and still haven't had a response?
Vectis is a major player in the UK! It is connected to the 'Barry Potter' Collectables Fairs and the well established Collectors Gazette paper! Sadly their knowledge on vintage Star Wars is either very limited indeed, OR they're fully aware of selling fakes and overgrading items?
I obviously feel that this 'problem' will only get worse? =
Hence I ask anyone who shares my concerns to email Vectis with your personal opinions and respond to the thread
that I have started!
+ WARNING! = They're expanding to 'across the pond'!!!
IF we don't make our concerns 'public' we'll be having to deal with crap like this RF Boba Fett
, for years to come!
