    I saw a comment of yours on an An India addervtising page and I wanted contact you but I cant find a way to get intouch with you.

    In that comment you talk about your collection of old Aid India articles (pins, pens, toys maharajas etc.)

    I am very interested in your collection of the maharajas. I am a collector of these maharajas and I have every version except the 2 and 3 footers. If you have them or know of anyone who does, I’d be very intrested. So, If you see this comment by me, could you please contact me on siddique.s@hotmail.com.
