Frank Miller '300' Shield replica

I had a chance recently to examine one of the Warner Bros. '300' shield replicas which were sold by the wholesale company NECA to retailers. Lately they've been selling on eBay for over $1,000, and sometimes much more than that. It's probably closer to $1,500. However, here is the kicker! Several of the eBay sellers in their listings are saying that this is "no. 3 of 300" or "lowest limited edition number" on ebay.

Upon closer inspection, it's only the box that is showing the limited edition number (unlike the signed limited edition lithograph) as it isn't reflected anywhere on the shield. So before you make that big purchase and see that you've bought no.1 of 300, no. 2 of 300, etc., etc., please be advised that in essence you are paying for the box that has this limited number written on there with magic marker, not your shield.

John, please feel free to delete this comment. I could not find a means of sending you a private communication, so opted for the comment route.

In any case, I am compiling a set of quotes from a dozen blogs reviewing 300 for our website in preparation for the DVD launch. As an authority on the movie, I'm turning to you first. Do you have a review amongst your archives, and/or do you know of any other quality blogs that might be quote worthy for our homepage? If so, can you please drop me a note to 300dvd@gmail.com?

Each blog quoted will also get a link from our homepage, http://www.300-dvd.com/

Many thanks for any help you can offer!
