The only stickers I don"t enjoy are POTF Coin Offer labels. I own one - an ESB Lobot. I bought that one as I enjoy the fact that it presumably sat unwanted from 1981 until it got POTF-stickered in 1985.

I have stickers on a few of my MOC'S, thankfully they are small, as for me I would rather they were not there. Assuming the Sticker is small do you think it affects the price, does the sticker reduce the value of the item?
Because he's holding a thermal detonator!!

We all have our time machines. Some take us back, they're called memories. Some take us forward, they're called dreams.

In historical terms, stickers to me would add value. Provienance is positive in my world and triggers nostalgia of course.

They add value to me too. The fact that they subtract value for the world at large makes them a win/ win as far as I'm concerned.

I'm more ambivalent toward overseas price labels but show me a UK label and I'm gushing. I don't have any strong feelings of nationality but show me a British distributed Star Wars toy and I'm a right perochial bugger.
