Collectors may do, but how   much info do you give them? At one time RC
prints were verborten. I had a guy look at some of my prints and he was very
complementary of the print quality - until he took one out of the secol bag
and realised the paper wasn't FB. When I did the carbon quadtone stuff, I
got a whole load of backsliding and 'digital isn't quite there yet' etc etc

I buy a few (3-4) prints a year in the 150-250 USD mark - i.e. low end. I
buy the photo, if it looks good, and I can see the quality, that is all I
care about.
