Default BFC Tab

Are you going to bid for it Dave!!

Here's the link to the auction site although the tab doesn't seem to be displayed yet. Note that they sold some of the controversial "Hitler" paintings a while back.

It will be interesting to see if this tab is authenticated by real experts.

It's the old Delta International repro from the 60s, though it's clearly had a bit of artificial aging applied.

I suppose it's possible that it's a copy of the Delta copy but it certainly isn't an original.

I've emailed the auctioneers though I wouldn't expect to hear from them until after the weekend.

I am sure it is not, but I have a delta copy and this tab is different.
