here is a key item in my collections it is as scarce as hens teeth now you tell me what it is or should have been. There is a obvious clue within the image. I will offer a Prestige booklet pane to the one who emails me first with the correct answer. I'll be waiting...

There are 16 perforations along the bottom where there should only be 15

re: 1st Class Millennium

I may be going blind, or even crazy, but I see only fourteen perf teeth along the bottom edge.

re: 1st Class Millennium

Not sure if I am counting correctly perhaps, but I see 15 (on mine) from edge to edge and 16 on the given picture. If you count using your method, do you see one less on mine than on Machinhigh's?

Shucks, I thought for sure it was a newly discovered Imperial German Helmet Variety and was about to pull my file of loose millennials to see if one was just sitting there awaiting discovery.

re: 1st Class Millennium

Why are the most obvious things the hardest to spot? I was sure it had something to do with the perforations, never occurred to me that separating them was the key.

Well done 'Berchinite'!

Machinhigh:-

Did you do the night class course of Stanley Baxters' Parliammo Glasgow ?

To be totally and utterly pedantic and a complete smarty pants:-

"Glasgow is in the West of Scotland NOT on the West Coast of Scotland. Glasgow has no coastline it just lies on a titchy wee river called the river Clyde."

To Quote my mother " You just didn't go to the right school. Did you?" (Ha Ha Ha)

For a translation of the "Scots phrase" Machinhigh presented.

"I shall fetch a pound of butter, for my mother, from the Barras tommorrow"


The Barras is the name of a marketplace in Glasgow.

The best advice my dad gave me was that knowledge doesn't take up any space, is good to learn something new every day. By those standard it is safe to assume that New York is not on the east coast but on the Hudson river.

re: 1st Class Millennium

Here's one elementary phrase for beginners "a perra perrs fell oana flaer".

These phrases were started by a Scottish comedian called Stanley Baxter under a sketch called Parliammo Glasgow, a take off of a programme called Parliammo Italiano (teaching Italian) on the TV at the time.
