Murff, that sold very quickly! Do you think it was under-priced? (Not that I could have afforded it anyway!)

Difficult to estimate - a green Curta demo box is an unusual collectors item. The last five green boxes where sold for

2010: $350
2011: $8750
2011: $9952
2015: $2750
2017: $11122

so the average price was $6585...

But mathmetics doesn't help. In any case - a lot of money!

WOW, Shocked

That did sell fast.

Looking at the ramp of prices on these is incredible. Wonder if there were 2 people out there that would have spent that much (ie how high would it have gone in the auction if no BIN existed)

Wait $350 and $2750 was there something wrong with these? these seem to be outliers.

Yes, that is true so it isn't a representative price. That said, it is now whole, fully cleaned and serviced. Of course that was not without cost. I'm quite happy to own it.

If you can see my pictures here you also should have access to my site (if the server is down, no pictures would be displayed...)

Here is a test picture:

No idea - between Michigan and Switzerland are many server nodes and connections... In the past years only once was reported access problems to my site...

So check your local configuration - it's electronic - not mecanic Smile

No your pics don't load, try at work on work machine ie or chrome, no work. Home Chrome doesn't work nor bing or IE. Chrome says to many redirects. I know I had this problem before and don't recall the fix.

Oh well.
