Collectors Corner

   This I found on ebay yesterday, a rarity indeed.
 The 25th Anniversary PAL VHS video box set issued by Polygram/ITC in 1992, comprising all 17 episodes as well as "The Alternative Version Of The Chimes Of Big Ben" and "The Best Of The Prisoner".  Grading for this item is near MINT; the only blemishes being some wear to the edges of the box, which also has some sellotape re-inforcing the bottom corners so they don't split. The videos (cases and tapes) have only ever been played once. The photo montage shows views of the box taken from four different angles. This set is formatted for use on videos utilising the VHS PAL system, so please ensure that your video player supports this system before bidding. Total running time is over 14 hours.
   It is not often you see this item, and when you do, it is without the presentation box, because the box usually fell to pieces being so filmsy as it was. Also the five videos are exactly the same used for the 30th anniversary box-set, although the presentation box was stronger and with a front gate. It was however coloured gold, and the gold rubbed off the box!

Be seeing you
