Aldridge & Son to Irish Mirror, 17 Oct 2018 :
"[...] only a handful of these posters exist. You can count them on one hand."
(A professional auctioneer would never declare "only a handful exist" but "only a handful are known to exist"!)

Aldridge & Son at live auction, 20 Oct 2018 : "There is 4 of these known to exist."
False statements! 7 are traceable (not counting my nr 8) and the one at V&A was in almost superb condition (see the above image nr 5) !
