I think someone was an idiot at the print shop and put a dollar when they were supposed to put the euro symbol. So, no you aren't the only one and 11.29 euro is 15.87 dollars, which is right-ish price for a dvd.

But that's definitely a 5 and not a $ sign. It seems obvious to me, even with the iPhone's lack of autofocus.

Surely no one is dumb enough to think Belgium uses the dollar! That's why I said the printing shop made a mistake - as the 5 looks like a $ in the fuzzy pic.

We have to get to the bottom of this! I sharpened it up in Photoshop, it's most definitely 511.29 and not $11.



Is it possible that's not even the price though? What were the other labels like at this store? Because the 511 is printed quite far from the EUR, so maybe that's some other number and they just forgot to print the price beside EUR?

oh lord... i just realised how crappy the iphone camera is. "cleaned up" by photoshop still looks like that? man! prob a good time to think about buying a better phone.

hey sovereign, i won't be surprised if this one was burned and signed by jezza. but i don't think his autograph is worth that much... didn't a pic signed by all three of them only go for like 5 quid on ebay? haha
