Rebinding old manuscript

I had recently posted a blog about my Kashmiri Quran which has beautiful lacquer covers but was poorly binded at the time of purchase. The covers edge was chipped off and lack of spine. See below link :
Kashmiri Quran

 During my trip to Istanbul early this year, I brought with me this manuscript and sent to a binding company for a repair. I have to pay about USD500 but Masyallah the result was fantastic!!
See below photos after the repair. My friend who owns a manuscript bazaar in Istanbul was envious to see this manuscript and had offered to buy this Quran. He said this type of manuscript can be easily picked up at USD8000-USD10,000 in Istanbul. Whatever the offer is, I am happy to keep this Quran close to me.
