No - it probably makes them more valuable.

Whichever way you look at it people will want the original and if this gets people more interested in the BRO the demand for the originals will outstrip supply.

On Abe last week there was a 1922 and the bookseller wanted £66.

Should be added though that the Met'O have done well with this, but I don't have any intentions of downloading any.
I know what I need to finish my collection and will keep my head down and collect them.
Picked up a my first edition between 1960 and 1991 last week and it ends in a 1 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
