Even in my darkest collecting days I would have laughed at that kind of coin. Must be nice!

Since finding my way to traditional wet shaving nearly 3 months ago I have caught the bug well and truly, but I must say the money that I hear people are parting with is simply ridiculous! More money than sense springs to mind, as TexBilly said......Must be nice indeed!

I wonder if there wasn't a bit of shill bidding on that superspeed. It seems high or maybe I'm just missing something.

They are saving money by not using carts :/

Have no idea really. The whole collecting, accumulating, speculating in stuff has really taken off in the past 5-10 years. You see it in knives, watches, pens, pipes, jeans, guns etc., especially vintage stuff. It's kind of a paradox. The things collected are from a time when men did not really collect at all.

Must have been a false bid, as it was relisted and sold for $75

Hmmm, now that is really strange. That hadn't occurred to me.

I just bought another Slim Adjustable. I got it for my nephew. He loves the one that was given to me. I got it for 13 dollars plus 3 dollars shipping. It looks to be in really good shape. Good deals can be found..... and then there are the ones like the ones mentioned in this thread. Amazing.

More money then brains indeed... the Better Half ran into the same problem on eBay a few years back when she tried to get hold of a couple of stuffed plushy toys. Collectors can be a scary bunch at times.

That said, personally I would be more comfortable buying a used/vintage razor directly from one of your guys here on TSN; it would avoid the hazzle of going through eBay and I know I can trust all of you not to sell me a piece of junk Biggrin
