Dungeon Masters Guide is 2nd Alpha- with Monster Manual pages in.

The original owner photocopied the correct DMs Guide pages and scotch taped them over the Monster Manual entries. It's not in the best shape. Still:



Happy! Happy! Joy! Joy! Happy! Happy! Joy! Joy!

The auction description doesn't mention that fact . . . serves the seller right!

Was this pure luck or is there some visual way of spotting that particular printing which I missed?

Cheers,
Curt

Nice!
A "big find" like that is one of the best moments for a collector. I think I would have passed out.  :D

Cheers,

I was quite please in winning these 2 items.  These sets contain the "mini" Dragonlance module series DL1 through DL16.  I almost never see them for sale un-opened.

At a recent con I picked up a mint (I mean MINT) Grenadier boxed set of orcs - these guys are shiny and still have all the flash attached to them, the box is crisp and clean and not dished at all.  It's like someone bought it and shelved it for 30+ years!

Also, I got three Chainmail booklets for $10 each.  The covers are orange, does that mean they're worth less than my silver cover?







:D

Kidding, kidding.  They're all silver comb-bound TSR prints (wizard logo, so probably 6th or 7th...)

Just recieved these this week, seller originally posted on Ebay and had trouble with the photos, so after much haggling on price and still lacking photos - I bought for less than half the original price 8O .
Still I wasnt expecting the two Strategic Reviews and a 2nd Ed Blackmoor :lol: , oh yeah and the two first edition MMs and 3rd Edition PH, oh and did I mention the 200 medieval lead minifigs (1970's) and the 100 middle earth lead figurines (1970's) + the first five dragons and some early white dwarfs and two (2) sets of 5th edition OD&D and two Greyhawks 8) .
The only drawback was there was no OD&D boxes - Oh well...... :lol: :roll:

Viewing the photos require one to log into MSN.  :(

Are the Minifigs historical or fantasy figures?

Are the LotR figs from Custom Cast?  If they are in good shape, then they are worth listing on eBay; LotR fans are crazy.

The Minifigs are historical, the Middle Earth pretty much all custom cast, includes Ents, Hobbits, Saurons Orc army, plus plenty more. Try the photos now have reset the entry level, will put some photos of the figs up later, I am still unpacking them.

Nice haul on the paper stuff.  The Custom Cast LotR minis are fun to look at, though the more unique figures are expensive or hard to find.
