That's odd.
   
    I was still a member of the Hong Kong Snuff Bottle Society in 1975 (or was it already, "The FIRST International Chinese Snuff Bottle Society" ?!  They changed their name a few times Grin),  but I don't remember being offered this bottle.

    I had the Li Tieh-kai bottle, the Mao-Nixon bottle, and the Pat Nixon Camellia bottle. I even bought the standing mandarin figural bottle by the 'Hall of Benevolent Integrity', which Keynes promoted (probably collecting a 'brown envelope' along the way  Roll Eyes).

Dear Joey,

Maybe someone used the wrong type of brown envelope that time....so that less butterflies 'flew'.   Grin

Dear Joey,

That's the 1975 journal. You can see it on pg15.


Dear Tom,

Looks to be further depreciating. A good time to look at London auctions now.

Cheers,
YT

Dear YT,
   
     Better get there quick. After a few more Jihadi outrages in the EU, you will be able to see the Euro take a nosedive, and the UKú get back up where it belongs.
     Even if that lefty bast*rd George Soros (to my shame born an MOT, though he hates Israel and helps Islamists) tries, he won't be able to hurt the UKú.
     When the UK refused to enter the Eurozone, the UKú went down, and returned higher a few months later. Same thing now.
Best,
Joey

Dear Joey,

I have bought US$ against Euro since end last year and have lost quite a bit. Euro is not strong, just US$ is too weak and Yellen relies on too much data/analysts.

Will be fabulous if what you predict happens although not at the expense of people's lives.

Cheers,
YT

Dear YT,

     With Jihadis in the mix, you are guaranteed that innocent people will lose their lives.
And innocents as I understand the term - ANYONE who does not attempt to kill, maim, rape or terrorise others.
Not as the Moslem prez in the White House uses the term - innocent means Moslems; no others are 'innocent', by definition.

   The question is, are we going to 'clean house' BEFORE they commit a lot more and bigger massacres, or AFTER. And you are in Singapore, sandwiched between 62% Moslem Malaysia and 88% Moslem Indonesia.
 Good Luck,
Joey
