    1. If you're in Lagos, put it in a transparent jar and take it to Lekki Art Market. You could do 300 per jar.

    2. Please don't sell. Keep them. In the future you could tell your kids or grand kids about them (that's if you are a collector of antiques). I have old coins and notes,safely kept in a display shelf in my basement. I love collecting old items like these. I could buy them from you.

    1. Just put plain sheet over it and use the bottom of 2b pencil to colour it to get the same pattern.
