Thierry,

What price should be very high?
When I look at prices of last set from the previous pope and first set of this pope I cannot see anything very different from other sets.
Why should it be different this time?

And beside that they can emit 2x2E CC, so they will probably issue a 2E CC Sede Vacante.
The prices will be high for few weeks... then back to normal (or a bit higher than usual).
In ebay the BU set 2012 closes now at 100-150E!!! There are some crazy people.
The last 2005 set has a market price around 150E.

I am more worried about the fact that it will be very difficult to pay UFN, since credit card and other electronic payments are blocked since 1-1-2013.

Yes I'm worried for this too... hope they resolve the problem before they send the orderforms.
They don't accept IBAN payment so only cheque and international postal order, which is more expensive and much more delay.
We will see.

Pope resignins annoucement is now 3 days all and we can see many crazy offers on Ebay or similarweb sites, to all I recommend to stay quiet there is no reason to see prices increasing and there is no Sede Vacante set, only a 2€ cc or collection coin (silver or gold)
Registered customer will receive order forms and then we can have reliable information.
No need to run, the most important is to start at time
