Why is it so sought after?
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

The rest of us are a bit crap.

Can't you download it from the net I did not have a euro symbol on an old one of mine but with a couple of combination key strokes I put one on the screen,or if you have windows press start, all programmes, Accessories, scroll down to System Tools, then across and down to Character Map and you will find all the symbols you need like this one, £ it was on the Verdana font one, you can copy it or gives it you the keystroke code you need, in this case Alt+0163 gives you £. :)

So who wants to play Russian ebay roulette?

There have been 7 bids and 51 views so far.

My exact guess is it'll go for 162.49

Anyone else like to make their guesses? :P

(Ooh! I like my little games! :lol: )

I don't think it will reach £100 and it will fail to sell as the reserve will be higher than that.
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight! It took me weeks to work out how to "quote". I would use the POUND symbol about once a decade :lol: :lol:

(but thanks for showing me where the character map was)
£ :wink:

Like Pooh said.... "quid" much faster to type.
