These two Daystar West modules popped up on Auction Hunter. What is the thinking on the prices asked for? Is this way over priced or closer to the market? Thanks!!

Chris,
They are personal copies of the author. The seller is the the author.
I don't know that it justifies the asking price, but there it is.


And I could've bought these damn modules off the 1$ rack!!!

I saw a Rahasia sell in Jan of this year for $1225. Based on the photos, I'd say it was F or VF. It was listed as a 2nd print of that blue cover version

I sold a Pharaoh a couple years back for about $1G (FN condition more or less). There was another in seemingly better shape which sold a little while prior for about $2-300 more as I recall.

How much is $1G in US Dollars?

I think both of those are overpriced (BINs) but seller will take offers which will most likely be automatically declined.
At least the two I made were.

Thanks Bill, I now spotted that in the description.

I was lucky enough to win that auction. The condition is definitely VF but not NM. Interestingly going by the sellers description for the Rahasia listed then the copy I acquired is actually a first print, as it has no address or contact info on the first page. This differs from the printing information listed on this site though.

Well, I made a four-figure offer by email (because ebay wouldn't forward my bid), and received no response... I hope the seller is happy, I'm disappointed there was no courtesy of a reply to my offer.

If anyone has a nice Rahaisa for sale, please let me know.

I would say that they are (were) over priced in a general way, but if you look at the sales of The Collector's Trove, there are a view people who can bid hard for very rare items.
Such items, near mint and from the author herself were very attractive, even at that price, IMO.
