I have been buying on ebay for many years and am often surprised by the number of incorrectly attributed plate numbers which appear in dealers’ offerings. My first encounter with this phenomenon was actually from a private member who incorrectly advertised a pair of blacks as being from Plate 6 when they were actually Plate 2. I pointed out the mistake to him and he generously made up for it with a grats 1 black f/u single! (I kept the Pl 2 pair). However, subsequently I have encountered the same problem with several dealers in respect of 1d reds, and I must admit that because in each case the mistake has been to my advantage I have not taken the matter up with them. Let the seller beware!

The whole business does make me wonder about the skillset of some dealers’ staff, when you consider the huge amount of information available to-day to assist with “plating”.
