Lost My Temper

I totally lost my temper over a phone conversation today. It took me one hour to cool down myself. I am saddened by many things.....

I am taking a real long break from blogging on this blog.....

Dragon MS Reprint

It has been confirmed that the dragon RM5 MS from the SODA supplementary order is of the reprint. The dragon RM5 MS reprint is basically similar to that of the original print. The only difference is that the reprint has slightly lighter colour compared to the original print, and this colour shade is not too obvious different between the original print and reprint. One may not be able to tell the difference if the reprint and original print are not put side by side for comparison. Pos Malaysia has started to deliver the supplementary orders to SODA members.

The next question on this reprint MS many collectors intending to ask is the printing quantity. It is said that 10,000 have been produced. If this is being added to the quantity of the original print (20,000), the total printing number for dragon RM5 MS is 30,000. This number is considered plentiful if it is just for local collectors. I was learnt that some SODA members have put in supplementary order up to 1,000 pieces, and not too few have ordered more than 100 pieces....

Now, with that number of printing, how much are you willing to pay for a piece of dragon RM5 MS from a dealer? hehehe
