I agree with Bertha about buying chisels on ebay. Usually the single chisels, especially in good shape go for a less than ideal price especially when you figure in shipping. I get better deals by looking at assorted sets, especially with those with missing or damaged handles. Thanks to the flat rate boxes here in the states, shipping a bunch of old chisels usually costs the same as shipping one. The discouraging part is that those selling a set of “junk” chisels rarely take the time to get good photos or document maker names or even sizes. Unfortunately those lacking all that info are the best deals because they go cheap, but they also carry the most risk of ending up with nothing but junk.
