Wow, maybe the market for the H-series has taken a downward turn.

H2-4 have gone for lower prices in the past: H1 has always been the pick of the series.
Seems to depend to a degree on how much a certain feline in pushing for H1 as to whether the others follow.

But, yes, some fairly decent prices there for apparently high quality items; especially for SW fans ^^

I bought H1 in France (on a wargamer's forum) for only 2€ ($2.50), mint unpunched...
Ebay is very (too) variable to be a good estimator of a book value... it is just my mind :) Sometimes H3 is sold for $45 and other times for only $15...

You planning on holding on to that one, though? :)

R1 and R2 in this lot.

For me it's not yet the time to venture on the R series. Have fun.

Thanks, Frank.

I'm promptly elevating this to crown-jewel status in my collection!

Thanks for the kind thoughts, guys.

Now, what was that recipe for beans and rice?

Cheerios are cheaper. You need to boil water for rice, and this way you can just eat the Cheerios out of the box.

I think it's make rice, add beans. If you really want to stretch your budget, eat rice one day, beans the next.

Or you could eat the manuscript, I guess. Should have plenty of fiber.
I wonder why it is that this manuscript sold for roughly the same price as one of the "real" rares, like Fazzle or Tsoj, yet it is a completely unique item. I would think it should go for easily twice what it did. Perhaps because the market for things like the manuscript is very narrow as far as people who collect them.

Any colleges nearby? If so, go to the supermarket closest to the school — they'll have top ramen in huge barrels, priced at like 12 packs for $1. :wink:

Yeah, that's what I was bracing myself for.  I think I got exceedingly lucky on this one...
