Certification:

The book was released in 1978. The history of how it was signed is unknown, other than the original seller had had it in her family for over 30 years and that she remembers that her uncle was friends with various of the gang members. These gang members had all been released, were mostly not in jail and based in the UK between 1978 into the mid 1980s. Ronnie Biggs was in Brazil and gang-member Brian Field was killed in a car accident in 1979. We therefore conclude it must have been signed soon after the release of the book. Ronnie Biggs is one of a large collection all obtained by Shane, who corresponded and visited Biggs at his home in Rio De Janeiro Brazil between 1993-1996.
