Quoted from Colsond3:
Start at 1500 maybe. Start at 3K? He needs to bring it down to about $700, if that, in that condition.
And a barn find, maybe. No evidence at this point. Could very well be somebody’s shed or garage.
I don't disagree. There have been several Gottlieb wedge heads stuck on CL for weeks around here. They are all in the $700.00 range and they are not moving at those prices.
It could be a shed. A barn. A lean-to on the back of the house. It has not been living a life of luxury. I can hardly blame him for starting with the outsized price when I see all of the idiot prices fools throw on their pins because of what they see on Ebay.
I'm not at all interested in this pin. He can price it where ever he wants. But there are a couple of rare pins I would like to have and if I saw an ad like this for one of those rare pins I would be calling the guy and see if we could work up a serious price.
This guy is the opposite of a sale I stumbled into on Oklahoma CL several months ago. A kid put up a very rare pin for sale for $300.00. It was a rare EM version of a popular SS pin. I sent him a CL email and told him what he had and that his price was way too low. He changed his price and got an offer of $1,000.00 and took it. I thought he could have gotten more but he had bills to pay and took the offer. So, I cost somebody $700.00 more than they would have had to pay if I had not come around. And I helped a guy out and kept him from getting fleeced.
That kind of shark action is not going to happen to the guy with this rare pin.
