    A Cooper Monobult. It went passed my spending limit. I did recognize the TSD member who had the high bid, but got sniped at the last minute. cooper monobuilt.jpg

    Nice. I'm assuming it way above my limit too.

    Maybe not. The Cooper sold for $34.00 plus shipping. Not an unreasonable price and I'm less upset that I didn't get it than for our TSD Member that got sniped at the last minute. Unless it was another member who did!

    That Toggle I was watching went for $376. My only hope for one of those is a local estate or garage sale and an uninformed seller.

    What I didn't buy today? A soap from Bill Neumann&Co. (Wm., Neuman, that is, but I'm just being me, chuk yuk). Why. Because I don't need anything from that company yet. That time will come :).

    True. I don't post every item that whizzes past my screen.

    There was a lot of 14 that sold for six bucks per piece, probably some profit to be made reselling a couple.

    Another that I was really interested in, but the bidding popped in the last couple days. At a little over $14 each I'd really would have to start buying hone next.

    Got my eye on 18 pieces of J A Henckels cutlery. With 5-1/2 days still to go it's at less than a buck a piece. The serious bidders hold out until the last couple hours.

    Too much good vintage in one lot. I'd have split those up.
    Ouch, and you didn't get it? That seller didn't know what her husbands estate gear was worth. I've seen a number of desirable vintage pieces come up on an auction site that gets all their merch via donations. It must hurt to see the gear you donated selling for hundreds of bucks. I feel just fine buying pieces in the wild for less than market value from uninformed sellers. It balances out the folks who's starting prices are set looking at the bay.

    If someone knows what this thing is worth or wants it, I'll pick it up tomorrow. I thought my picture got the price but once I got home I noticed it was turned around. I can't remember but I want to say it was either $20 or $50. I'm going to guess $20 since $50 seems high but I just can't remember.

    Almost bought a Cooper today. Resisted because that particular model required modified blades.

    Enjoy your shaves,
