wow --- but you know, it seems like all pristine, near mint and rare wet shaving gear, especially vintage gear, is beginning to really fetch a premium, even on the forums lately....BUT...it is due to an increased rise in popularity of what we all love --- wet shaving..... popularity drives demand and demand drives price --- oh well --- still a good time to be shaving the right way. Biggrin

Oh so true. Just seems like crazy money! Guess I'm just not a collector. It's a great razor but $400??

Never give a sucker an even break! I had to chuckle that with that winning bid that free shipping wasn't thrown in. Of course we don't know, but I'd like to think the seller actually did waive the shipping fee. (is that even possible?)

Personally, I think a lot of those high winning bids is just ego showing up. The "I won and you lost" sort of mentality. No razor is worth that price; at least to me.

I walked into an op shop today here in Maitland, country NSW and picked up one for $28 AUD. Gleaming, working, no brassing; all I have to do now I have polished and cleaned it is to repair the numbers and black band. Date codeG2. I don't seem to be able to post pics through imagist, so this may come up blank. I will try though. But $400? Meh.

The same reaction must be universal and the buyer had "0" feedback and had never bought anything on eBay. Makes you wonder as many sellers used to warn that buyers with few or no feedback would not be allowed. It did include the book and original cardboard shipper which would indicate little or no use?

Remember when baseball cards went through the roof in the 90's? Or, to a lesser extent, the beanie babies?

yes - i remember Biggrin the tulips are particularly strange because tulips are so fragile - but so are art on paper too. for example. seems anything can skyrocket as long as enough people agree.

I remember on one of my deployments back in Navy in the early 2000's, when the Tickle Me Elmo dolls were going for over $500...

I've seen toggles in "somewhat better than nice" shape go for $400+. A vintage never opened???????

Coin collectors should be thought about in instances like this one. A rare year Morgan dollar in fine condition may sell for $200-$400. Whereas the same coin in uncirculated condition may fetch $2000.

Beauty (and collectables) are in the eye of the beholder. Also, moving this to the Parlor.
