Agree with this - people are paying more for things still because of the lack of other buying venues....at least that’s been my observation still lately
This made me think that with Feebay being their own worst enemy and driving away the vast majority of good sellers the buyers are still there in the same numbers, but not the sellers. Ergo fewer good items being listed do to the alienation of the sellers by feebay and therefore with the same number of buyers still wanting the good stuff it has increased the demand because of Feebay running off the good sellers. I notice at shows there's still lots of good old stuff. More so than on Feebay these days. With the alienation of the sellers by Feebay the auction house consignments are sky rocketing. Even the Farcebook groups are having popularity with auctions. It's all an interesting dynamic of market function and fluidity.

Yes feebay keeps telling me I need to update my seller account and come around to their way of thinking but I have been ignoring them. Finally I broke down the other day and I managed to answer their call by removing my seller account info etc. Ha Ha take that.

What is going on with the neck on the 'Patent" bottle? It looks like a gap right at the shoulder with another top over the original.

The embossing makes a difference, as does the lighter color. Plus, it's a lot different buying from a know auction house vs a potentially unknown seller on ebay.

Yeah...but having handled a lot of these Stoddard Patents over the years, that is an extraordinary price.
