Hi Jon,

This is a lovely piece and as for the condition, i think its exelent. what would you expect after 15 years of destruction from your mums feather duster. I would like to make an offer but i am short on funds, how about a candle light dinner with me followed by a night of really long, really hard d&d, ill let you be DM. Remember really long and really hard. I do think that this is worth around the $2000 mark.

Hope you sell for lots, so you are rich and can affored that black,silk diomond encrusted cape youve always wanted, good lick

P.S. REALLY long and REALLY hard.

I think it might be Maxine. The English is worse than Draco's, and he is a man interested in another man.
Obviously it is someone screwing around. Ban the idiot. The Acaeum should start requiring credit card registration in order to be a member. Keep these frigging idiots away.

You could be right, although the "cougs" English is just as bad maxine's. Trust Me. :roll:

Speaking of Maxipad, I haven't heard anything back yet from the FBI. I wonder if they have a policy of keeping the informing party in the loop or not. I sent them everything I had, and they sent me a confirmation of receipt. I'll have to read it again.

For $1500+, forget shipping it. I will just book a flight and pick it up in person.  It might be cheaper.

I think the madness is setting in.
I believe that the bidding will top the 2k put forth by maxiepad from his post up above......

What do YOU have for the over/under?

I will make my guess : $2135.......  :wink:

I thought it was a given that it would go over 2K. Anyone who didn't expect it to wasn't being very realistic.

1.   I've said this to a number of you in PM in response to questions and bids alike, but please please please, will you tell me what to do!!!!
Ebay or Private sale.
No one has convinced me yet either way and looking through various responses, I've got about a 50/50 split.


2.   And another thing, with the relative weakness of the $ at the moment, isn't this a great investment for those UK collectors! (Not to mention shipping, insurance etc. that looks like being over $120 to the US to do it properly!)



Again, I can't thank you enough, this has truly been a great experience so far! (and from the post I'm getting, I think a few of you are enjoying this too!!!)

I know that this is probably going to go against popular opinion, but I personally would put it on Ebay. As a big of a pain in the ass it is and the fees that you will have to pay, EBay offers the most protection for both parties involved in the transaction. It will also allow folks to put there money where their mouth is per se. It will also eliminate specualtion and allow everyone to see the outcome. Just my .02

I agree completely.  It puts everything "out in the open", no chance of shady side deal rumors, fingerpointing, etc, etc, etc.  I would guess the value would go up due to back and forth ferocity, as well, and allow for snipes.

So would I, for all of the reasons posted above. It's not a perfect system, but there are a number of safeguards that eBay/PayPal can provide that just can't be duplicated in a private sale (short of escrow, I suppose ...).

And, for the record, I say this as a totally disinterested party — I have zero interest in this product. Although, I must admit, I would be very interested in watching the eBay bidding war, just because those can be kind of fun.
