Pete6e Trustpilot product review 4 star rating January 25 2020

The product is old, but honestly I didn't expect it to have the front & back pages taped together, & loose sheets inside. A bit of fore warning would not go amiss. Its a bit pricey for an old paper - but I suppose you're paying for the sentiment rather than the actual product.
