I sent the seller a "Lowball" offer on that display that they rejected.
I have seen most of those displays before at lower prices.
The one with the #7kp I have never seen.
Due to the rarity alone, that handle may be worth $300.

I spoke to Sue before about the #7kp, and she told me she had never seen one "in the flesh" either.

Yes, there is such a thing as NORMAL
, if you have to ask what is "NORMAL" , you probably aren't !

Failure may not be an OPTION, but it is ALWAYS a POSSIBILITY.

I had this one on watch and I saw earlier that it sold. Did you get the seller to accept an offer?

Nope, not me.
It sold for full price of $350.
$250 was tops I was willing to go, and that was only due to the #7kp being in it.

It was pricey no doubt, but a nice display set.

On those ‘best offer’ things, typically the listing will not state the final selling price. It will say something like ‘best offer accepted’, but will still show the original listing price. At least the ones where I have made an offer and it was accepted by the seller, the original listing price was not changed at closing to reflect the final price I paid. I don’t sell on eBay, so maybe someone here who does can offer more definitive details.

'Sue', who has helped several of us with various Xacto tool searches and info, has posted a decent array of custom Xacto tool sets on eBay recently, with what I think are some fairly decent prices.

This is a totally unsolicited plug for her ebay offerings. She is fair dealing and trustworthy in her sales, as can be attested by several of us here on YORF.
