    Thanks mate, I've actually been very lucky/mad as I now have 3 sets, I got offered a set a few weeks ago on a Facebook page, so I bought them, then the above ones popped up for a good price so I couldn't say no.
    Then earlier today I collected a brand new set, hens teeth indeed

    No mate, they were stored away in a garage for years, I can only think that dampness has played a part but the metal bits show no signs of rust/oxidation?
    The bit the graphics go onto is actually a bit of glass about 5mm in depth.
