sorry to contradict to several post.
I was told that the international ones have less “glitz” to keep them lower price.
Since some years they havn't issued international versions anymore. Also some of the very high priced solids often are cheaper here in Switzerland, but most of the solids are much higher priced in the U.K.
I can tell you a little story about that. In 2000 they issued the “drop of intuition” only in the international market. It was very “glitzy” and I was convinced that the US collectors would be absolutely crazy getting them. I thought I could at least make a little profit on them to finance my own collection and bought 10 pieces of them. It was the very first time I added a solid to eBay…….would you believe that I only sold 1 and still have 9 of them left.
The same happened in 2001 to the “Essence of you” and “the Language of the Heart” which according to my opinion (and watching eBay) are not very much thought after……..I didn't make the same mistake (one is only allowed to make the very same mistake once <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ /> )and havn't bought any of them to store.
