I hope this goes to the right place...I don't post here very often.  I have a strange CD box set for "Made In Heaven" that I can't seem to find anywhere else.  Maybe someone here knows a little something.  I am liquidating a portion of my Queen collection and would like to know if this is actually worth something or not.  Thanks for any help you can offer.

DETAILS:

Parlophone 7243 8 36088 2 9

CD is housed in a blue heavy plastic case with flip-up door in the front - rear says "Special Collector's Box Set"

Inside can be found the CD of the album, a keychain, and a slate paperweight each with "Made IN Heaven" on the front.  ON the reverse of each it says "polished slate, over 500 million years old."

Certificate of limited edition is included:  No. 252 of 3,000

I have been looking for info on this item from various sources and have to date found nothing of it's rarity or value.  Thanks in advance!!!!

Never heard of it. Probably just a bootleg-item, with the original CD included. There were a couple of these items around the time of the MIH release, including a TMLWKY-box which included the official CD-single plus an unauthorized biography.

Picture?

And I doubt there were 3,000 of these made if no one here has one or details of.

Hello,

What you have is an unofficial release, but still a nice item. Value £35 -£55 on ebay hence why the parasite (alan james bond- ebay ID) offered you £20 for it on Queenzone.

I bought one of the TMLWKY boxes around 1998 but it had NO CD inside! hehe... yes, I bought a cardboard box just because it had the words "Queen" printed on them. Since then I want to believe I have become more selective of the things I buy. :P

Thanks for the info everyone...I actually sold this piece some time ago and got a nice amount for it. When I was first collecting Queen I had no idea of what was official and what wasn't...I just bought anything if it had Queen's name on the cover!! I thought the piece was either extremely rare or complete garbage...I guess it fell somewhere in between.
