Sale of a JK Rowling handwritten book

We're selling a JK Rowling handwritten book containing official Hogwarts advice for first years. The book was originally created for a 2004 charity auction, where it sold for £10,000. 
The market for Rowling's memorabilia has exploded since then and we're expecting it to sell for up to £150,000. 
Thought you guys might be interested in having a look. Link is here: https://www.invaluable.com/auction-lot/miniature-harry-potter-manuscript-handwritten-by--13-c-cec4209888

      'Hatstall' is canon.

      What is a 'Hatstall'? It's a person that's hardly sorted into one of Hogwart's houses.
      To simplify it, it's when you can't decide which house you're belong to.
      In HP Wiki, it said that and I quoted:
      'A Hatstall was an archaic term for a student of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry whose Sorting took more than five minutes because the Sorting Hat found them to have a personality equally suited to different Hogwarts Houses.'
      There are two types of hatstall: True-Hatstall and Near-Hatstall.
      For example, Professor Mcgonagall is a True-Hatstall. It was because the sorting hat spent five-and-a-half minutes wavering between Gryffindor and Ravenclaw.
      Harry is a Near-Hatstall. It was because he had a fight as the sorting hat wanted to put him into Slytherin when he wanted anything but Slytherin.
      Known True-Hatstalls are Minerva Mcgonagall and Peter Pettigrew. True Hatstalls were rare, occurring around once every fifty years.
      Known Near-Hatstalls are Harry Potter, Hermione, Neville, Gilderoy Lockhart, etc.

      So, what do you think?
      Are you perhaps one of the Hatstalls?

      In the game, both Nymphadora Tonks and Tulip Karasu are both known as a troublemaker.
      But it's so weird for me to have two characters with very similar traits.
      What do you think differentiate Tonks and Tulip?
      Who do you prefer more as a best friend?

      If you're a fan of Harry Potter you might want to head to your nearest B&M. They're now stocking face coverings in a Harry Potter style for just £2.50 each. With masks now mandatory in shops and some schools, the budget retailer is selling the masks in the gift aisle at stores up and down the country.

      Each face covering is described as 'one size fits most', the Harry Potter masks are adorned with the Hogwarts crest.

      What's your favorite subject in Hogwarts? Which class do you want to attend the most?

      You can read the list here: https://harrypotter.fandom.com/wiki/Hogwarts_subjects
      For me, I think I would be bad in Charms, Transfiguration or anything to do with casting spell. It's because I wouldn't be able to memorize all of those practical spells. But maybe DADA will be interesting because I like the idea of duelling.
      Herbology and Magical Creatures are also not my things. Also anything about history. My hands are also not good in handling the Potions.
      My favorite subject would be DIVINATION! I'd love to learn about predicting futures like I have always done.
      I'd love to be a great seer one day! 
      How about you?
