It sounds like you saw one! It's possible. Despite their current perception of rarity, there were large numbers for sale in the USA. Many UK collectors did not even know they existed in the early 2000's, and were not particularly sought after in the UK. I would say the collectability of them in the UK is quite a modern phenomena
