All items above worth zero! So don’t ask, they have nothing to do with Queen collecting. Report them on ebay, Discogs and suggest your friends not to buy them at record fairs. The also sounds crap!
This is just a draft and will be constantly updated
There’s a great community of serious collectors here in Italy who earned a large experience with sacrifices and deep effort in the Queen vinyls and memorabilia world.
So it would be useful for everybody sharing more informations and suggestions as possible in the future before approaching a sensible purchase like these items have required.
Many genuine collectors sadly fell into the temptation and spent a lot of money for those item listed above..many of them realized after having in their hands that it was a counterfeit piece and could do nothing to get their money back.
So, if the information is shared , situations like above may not happen again.
I agree that sometime reaching for first a piece is a great goal but beware.. try to get more informations as possible… Now with internet, social networks is very easy getting in touch with serious long time experienced collectors… so wait a second, be 100% confident before spending your money!!!
