          Thank you for that. As a rule, I generally dislike twitter, so a decent one is always a good shout.

    I know precisely zero about this but I remember my Grandfather was a big stamp collector and I remember the absolute no-no was to put your greasy paws on the stamps.

    Based on this, I would hope the manuscript above is merely a copy of the original as the persons fingertips appear to be resting directly on the parchment – if its not a copy, Granda Bill will be cranky!
