http://www.ebay.com/itm/Curta-Mechanical-Calculator-Manufactured-August-1947-Serial-No-1937-/142397462083?hash=item21278cd643:g:7woAAOSw8HBZK0iX

Looks to be in pretty good shape, Love the serial number on the can, but priced out of my range.

It's a nice machine but USD3K is a bit ambitious I think. Despite the Frenchman's best efforts we haven't seen pricing inflate THAT much.

And with 8 seconds to go, someone (one of our 2 voters?) bid and won it for $3000.

Maybe a new benchmark for pricing?

Dunno if that means it actually sold though. If so, great!

Very nice and original though - I'd kill for a matte box and the top ring with the engraved numbers at the bottom to properly restore N 912 ... no-one has a completely derelict machine for sale with these features ?
