I've seen them called lots of things but for electric TRAINS?

I think that opening bid is about double what Ron would give you for them. :-)

I don't know which is worse. A buyer that doesn't know or a seller that doesn't know. The more you put in a listing title the better the chances of it turning up in a search so the seller might just be being cagey. The cases look tired to me and that's a turn off even if they worked. My limited experience in buying T stuff is Flea Markets are better price-wise than Auto Swap Meets. A seller that doesn't know is better (for the buyer) than a seller that thinks he knows.

Calling them batteries is bad enough but what gripes me is calling them "dovetailed".

Me too Don, me too. Those ain't dovetails folks! They are finger joints or box joints, depending on your chosen vernacular. I'm just waiting for someone to say something along the lines of "handmade coil boxes' or 'handcut dovetails at the corners". Both of which are patently untrue.

I find it interesting that a lot of sellers try to sell stuff about which they have NO idea what it is.......but they sure "know" what's it worth!

Good grief......have they never HEARD of google?

This seems to fit here:

Night before last I had dinner with a couple of old friends. One is an engineer, but has done a lot of statistical work too. We were lamenting the erosion of awareness, courtesy, and general smarts in our society.

He said to me, "Just remember Henry, every other person you randomly encounter in your life has an IQ under 100"

Sadly, it's obviously as well as technically true.

The most stupid description of a coil was a few years back on ebay. The seller described the coil as a Ford wooden piston. That about did it for me.

just sayin,

Coils are very much misunderstood. A T guy brought a set to me to rebuild the other day. He had glass beaded them for me. He also didn't want to spend the money for new points. Go figure.
