....if the Price is Right!
Posted by pennytrains on Thursday, June 2, 2022 7:44 PM

Want an instant collection full of bona-fide prewar rarities?  I spotted this bay auction and wanted to pass along the info since it's all the kinds of things you never see in person outside of a museum.

And all for a measly $47,500!  Crying

Wait a minute!  Sold "as is?"  Does that mean for that kind of bread they don't work?  I mean really!

Probably a "True" collector.  Can't dare lowering their value by finding out if they work!  Wink

With a price tag like that, I think it's reasonable to say these will safely remain the kind of thing I'm never going to be seeing in person (except at a museum). Good luck to em on securing a sale...
