Miss Shona Henderson Trustpilot product review 5 star rating June 8 2021

Bought the Scotsman for my Dad’s 60th. He was over the moon. Came carefully wrapped and in a nice box. Paper was pristine. Will definitely use this site again. I thought initially it was a wee bit pricey but you are getting a paper from 60 years ago in perfect original condition.
