I am not giving up on you. You are the only person i am working with. This answer could be ok. but i remember someone selling the same peice for more than $1000,00 several years ago. Can you please spend a little more time on it and see if you can come up with something different,,
Expert:  Will replied 2 years ago.
Sorry, but I pulled active comps from the past ten months in all active databases...I found one which sold for exactly $1,000 in 2010 but it was near mint condition...and found another currently for sale with an asking price of $800...so the range is accurate in this economy for a private seller. You may, of course, ask any amount you want...and may find that one person looking besides the one I told you about already. Best, Will
