An unusual item up for sale tomorrow at an auction in Kent. As you'll see here lot 72 is...

Slightly earlier in the same auction lot 28 (here) should also prove to be of interest to Dan Dare fans. Bidding opens at £300 on one of the finest pieces of Dan Dare merchandise that was ever produced - and I have to say this is is just superb condition.

as it says here...
