Response to mmm interesting question
I totally agree with the comments made. I have talked about this with a contact I know who looks at the forum but doesnt contribute, and we have bemoaned the fact you might alert someone to the value, which can be frustrating. One example is seeing H Masks. You can email the seller asking if its dated and then what might have gone unnoticed as a 60s mask is suddenly highlighted as a rare 45 dated example!! I have picked up a fair few bargains though, and dealers aside, its one reason to throughly know your subject. My £25.00 Type 19 mic being a good example.
I too have little sympathy with dealers though, who should know their stuff (although equally it baffles me when they put out an 'unknown' badge at £30.00 or £50.00 start price when anyone who does know what it is knows the value is about a tenner!).
