Taking The Biscuit



Are you looking for some Easter goodies that are Machin related? If the answer is yes, what about this little gem. It is a Limited edition Machin for Queens Jubilee - 60th Year 1952 - 2012.

Once you have devoured the contents described as "A Delicious Selection of Chocolate, Creams, Plain & Jam Biscuits from Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Biscuit Selection." You can re-use the tin to keep your spare Machin stamps.


Cool!

As I was far in Mediterranean France, I find the Cologne's English Shop's website (perhaps available on location in center Köln, Germany).

The tin in picture appears to a price sticker on it at the very top which look's like £4.99.
Does anyone know where this can be brought in the UK?

I see that the one that is shown on this blog has just sold for £53.00 plus postage. Why would someone pay £53.00 when elsewhere on eBay another seller has the same thing as a 'Buy it Now' priced at £10.38 including postage?
Am I missing something here?

I had a look at other references to these via Google and it would appear that McVities recomended retail price is £5. I guess they might be even less if you could find them at a supermarket, but I couldn't find them on the Sainsburys or Adsa websites.

£53 + postage, who ever payed this must need to get bidding on mashed potato, just to replace the fruit cake in the brain department.
