I stumbled across the old Dick's Spring box last week (catalogue number 570, but no longer listed). The ammo tin was a jagged pile of rusty metal, the book rotting and the stamp (the same one I first found in 1992) wrapped in a plastic bag. I've removed everything but the stamp and bag as it was just litter, but does anyone know who owns this box? It could do with a little TLC.
