    Another Contest!

    I better get Dave started on a new contest before I forget...

    Here are a few items I have here:

    1) a 1-1/4" Earth printed on a recycled glass sphere by Shasta Visions
    2) a 4-1/4" section of cane recovered from the 'Eichhornhut' factory grounds in Steinach, Germany by the German digger Gerhard Bz. This section is too good to be true - clean as a whistle, a beautiful piece. Better win it before I change my mind!
    3) a 5/8" purple/yellow Popeye corkscrew with a pit. I think it's some kind of as-made; a blow-out airhole that then got chipped up, or a fracture that popped off. I say this because a short distace away, in the same vein of color, there is another smaller apparent defect - a small fracture following the border between purple and yellow. So not mint but still an OK marble from other sides.

    Dave - you still down to run these? Please pick an auction and we'll do "How High Will It Go?" again? Let me know the address of the winner, and we'll ship it right out. And thanks again so much for hosting these contests for me I don't have time to blow my nose over here!!

    Thanks, Pete! Dang, those are some cool prizes.

    OK, folks... here's the joint:

    He he he. Its an eight day auction so you have a little more time to play your hand, strategize, or pawn some of your stuff for bidding money. LOL.
    Here're the rules and fine print. The winner will be the closest to the final selling price, not including shipping, without going over. You must be a registered member to play. There are no minimum posting requirements though, so if you're a newbie or a lurker and are unregistered, you need merely register to play. All registered members are welcome!
    Lastly, no bids will be accepted within the last twenty four hours of the end of the auction. This is to keep it fair and fun for all. I like to encourage everyone to show off their mad value-knowlege skills by bidding early, but how you play it is up to you. LOL.
    Have fun with it. Thanks again to Pete for providing the bomb prizes. Good luck everyone.

    -Dave

    The current high bidder on that auction was the seller of that same box (or its identically damaged twin) in the fall.


    (fwiw)




    seller's remorse?

    Just bumping this up to the top. I see that it's in the Round Table section. I know I always just hit the "new posts" button at the top of the screen, but I suspect some may read the posts by category. Perhaps everyone's playing it cool. LOL. Good luck once again, folks!

    They are probably waiting for the "last minute advantage",on the guessing.
    NOT AN ADVANTAGE,ON THE AUCTIONS FINAL PRICE,BUT BY SEE EVERYONE ELSES GUESS.
    145 people looked at the thread an 4 people posted a guess.

    Good thing its not a poker game,If I caught you looking at my cards,you would wake up a week later,wondering where the big knot on your head,came from.


    Come on people,post a guess,it supposed to be about having little fun.
    If you didnt have any bad days,you wouldn't know what the good ones look like.
