My Raleigh Carlton Competition has serial # H2913. I believe it is a '73 so I suspect your G2315 would make it a '72.

By the fork bend, the paint, and the decals, I'd say '72 or '73. I had one of those, too, same color, same fork blades. Bought it in '73, but it might have been old stock.

How about some photos of that Series 1 E-Type in the background?

That's a great looking bike. I guess the moral of the story is be careful what you bid for,

Sorry couldn't resist.

Yeah, you're in deep doodoo. You need a friend that you can have stuff shipped to, sneak it in, with that list of bikes, who'd notice another?

C is for cookie (and 1968) , G is for 1972.

I was going to suggest the year of the Jag is the same as the year of the Raleigh since they are the same colour. Perhaps you can inquire of the seller what year the Jag is? Just saying'.

That is a different serializing scheme that is being referred to. The International shown is a 1972, constructed in Worksop. A few years later in the 70's, Raleighs made there would have serials starting with "W", but this predates that.

Copycat

Identical setup to mine including Campy brake assembly and 27" Weinmann rims. But '72 decals vs my updated '73 version.

I'm glad you finally found one in your size.

Nothing wrong with that. (Wife has a 2001 Passat wagon; boys and I drive A4s and S4s, including the 2002 A4 shot in the middle of a timing belt job.)

That is a beautiful bike, and in great condition, even if it is a little too tall for me.

congratulations!! nice bike. A similar thing happened to a friend of mine. He bid $500.00 (minimum bid) on a 1973 Paramount, I told him there was no way he would get it for that cheap....HE WON!! I assembled the bike for him, all the Campy parts were there except the seat post. He gave me the Campy pedals for assembling the bike because he hates early pedals. The pedals turned out to be titanium spindle records.
