Well, maybe not the Tech as such, but the case/Tech combo: a 1953 Coronation Set:

http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/350731610077?...000wt_1413

Without postage, in US $ terms, that's near to $345. 25 bids, too, so no accident.

Well, if you've gotta have one, you've gotta have one.

Its justified because of the year it was produced, condition and the iron law governing all human behavior , supply and demand. If you can't appreciate a $350 tech from the point of view of the razor collector then you sir are sane. I can't see it either.Biggrin

The shipper is the cardboard box it came in. [Picture from Mr-Razor's site - http://www.mr-razor.com]

A lot of money. The guys who bought razors on ebay in 2006 when they were $1 are looking pretty smart now.Smile

That's a totally crazy price.

I just don't get how a standard Tech in a rate case could sell for so much.
