Good deal??
« on: February 03, 2018, 12:39:45 PM »
I have an opportunity to pick up an Albanian (70's) vintage with matching numbers for $525.00.  Seems to be in good shape via pics, but of course personal inspection before buying.

$525.00 a good price??

All matching including stock....  Yes

Yup, that was a good deal if it was all matching & as-issued. $200 below market price I'd say.

  That was a good deal if it was indeed a matching numbers Alby. Do you have an auction address or listing info that can be shared with the board? Since it's already been sold, we still might be able to glean some data from the listing and pictures, anyway. The more data we can collect, the better.

  Thanks for the alert on this one. Saw that you joined the Files just after Christmas, 2017, so welcome to the Files from an old Missouri Ridge Runner!

Sorry but no info on the Albanian.  It was for sale on a local message board I am on here in Maryland.  It was up and sold in just over an hour.  My PM missed being first by five minutes.... oh well.
