    But.. but ... It's so shiny!


    I wonder if it shaves better than my five dollar E-4?

    Well, one thing you are not missing is your money, I hope. That is about 20x over priced.

    The “perfect storm” of stupidity must have occurred.

    That price makes me feel better about EBay's charge of $48 just for a can of Colgate Regular shave cream.

    I should correct my post...I suppose the $48 for the Colgate Shave Cream was a BID. It's probably taken by now.

    Or a bunch of shell accounts trying to bid up the price and over shot the real buyers max if that isn't your listing.

    If it was never used & stored in a nitrogen atmosphere to avoid absolutely no corrosion it still originally sold for a buck ninety five. Using a government inflation calculator website that's $16.49 in today's value. It's just a nickel plated brass blade holder. A nice one, but not at 62 times the price adjusted for inflation or craziness. Had Gillette made a few more of them, tucked em away for half a century...

    More money than sense these Fatboy Fools. "Oh but they only made 5 million of them compared to 12 million Slims".

    Just represents a week of sales by this one seller.[​IMG]

    It kinda looks like something else comes with the Fatboy.

    I believe the number of completed prior transactions is next to the name but not sure.

    The same bidder who paid $1025 for this one paid $529 for another which argues against my birth year frenzy theory. The second highest bidder in both transactions was the same guy.

    The person purchasing that razor will never use it. When it's used even once, its value plummets to around $60, the going rate for a used Fatboy.Have to wonder what the point was, aside for occasionally donning some latex gloves and fondling it.
