My brother in Florida came across this collection for sale. The guy was asking $1200, my brother got him down to $450. My brother calls me from the guy's house asking my opinion (he doesn't know toys as well as I do). I told him $1200 was a little high and try to get him down. When he called me back on the way home to tell me he got it for $450, I nearly fell over. He still didn't know if he got a good deal or not. I told him I would give him $700 and I would do all the work in selling it. He passed on the offer.
