Thought it might be the same guy with the timer, but it isn't.

Wow. Wonder if he wants another to sell?

Give the guy a break, it's half the price he was asking last week. Another month or so and he will be down to what it's worth.

Isn't this the same person that was asking $4500 a couple of weeks ago and preaching to us about forum decorum?

Yep

That's a "Model T pump" in the same way that a Merino ram is a species of migratory waterfowl.

Where do these guys get this from? How did he decide that it's "Super Rare" and is worth $1,500 and that "we'll never find another"?

....and why do they hold on to it so adamantly when called out on it?

I just don't get it!

"we'll never find another"

Fine. I don't want even one, let alone "another". It would make me nervous to have an item of such value and rarity in my care.

I have a rare one just like it. Mine cost $75 two years ago at Hershey.

I'm a lucky guy....

He paid too much for it and he is trying to get his money back!:-)
Just like the ultra rare dovetail battery boxes that come up once a week (aka untested /unknown coil)

Aren't coils like......$5 untested G.R.? :-)

I think you stole yours Rob...$75 is WAY to little... ;)

Clayton, it can be yours for the basement bargain price of only $1400.

Let me just get my checkbook Rob.... :-)

"This model (or similar to this) has never been offered for sale"
?

Really? Then how did he acquire it? :-)

"We also have significantly lowered the starting price in this revision on basis of the 3 criteria: Rarity, Quality, and Age."

SUCH A DEAL! :-)

Me thinks its musical flash 999 otherwise known as Arnold Levin. He is the overpriced lister of brass lamps, horns and coils. The listed address is Chicago where Arnold lives.

Not Arnold Levin.

The seller identified himself in the other thread. You can Google his name to see who he is and what he does for a living. He's a highly educated fellow.

He has recently sold other items on eBay at healthy prices.

People who aren't familiar with something are too quick to call it "rare." The word is used ad-nauseum on Craigslist. Also, even if something is extremely rare, it does not mean it is worth anything. The item needs to be desirable, not simply rare. There are millions of rare items in this world that folks aren't interested in buying.

Arnold Levin has had some of the same pieces listed again and again for well over 10 YEARS now on Ebay that NEVER sell! One that readily comes to mind is a Brass Era combo speedo/clock setup made out of unobtainium.
