Great story. Darrell has been after an RF for a long time. Awesome he was finally able to finally score one. The purchase went down at an attorney's office.....can only image the money involved!!

I'm sure there are still other exciting discoveries to be made Ian. It will be interesting to see whether other Rocket Fett mailers now come to light with all the publicity this was has generated. The discovery reminds meĀ of the Palitoy VC Jawa - Rumors were around for years, then when one is confirmed, others turn up.

Yeah it's funny that people used to complain that there is nothing new left to document but it seems that new discoveries keep popping up.

I'm still waiting for that Luke Hoth with a blue saber to finally be uncovered Smile
