There’s always a few sellers with potentially great planes to own, but they list them only with the “Buy it Now” option, with a price in the stratosphere. These people are hoping to snag some compulsive buyer on the fly. You can easily disregard these listings, and pay close attention to the planes listed at no-reserve auction. The final bids are truly the most reliable, accurate indicators of what an plane’s true value really is in the marketplace….because, after all, that’s what it sold for with national exposure! I pass by dozens of ebay tools daily, because the price went beyond what I’d be willing to pay. However, I’ve pounced on a few deals on Stanley #2’s and #45s, once I became familiar with the prices they typically fetch, and ended up with a few bargains. Hey, I’m in the market for a late-model F-150; you wouldn’t believe what those things go for…......... same story.
