Well, that appears to be the norm across many of the provincial salerooms these days, sadly, which is certainly a reason I don't bother with them to be quite honest, of course some are actually far...

I've always liked the distinctive FN made examples, they don't seem to turn up as often these days as they used to.

That seems to have certainly reflected in the price of the second badge, a little change from five hundred quid, enough for a few celebratory drinks for the buyer perhaps.
