C8 Mk 2 Pilot

Post by JAFO »

One of these just sold on eBay for £255. Sounded cheap to me. Is that a good price?

Original price range in 2010 was £335-£415.

It probably depends on the condition. I wouldn’t have thought it has much in the way of rarity value.

Thanks for the info.

I didn't investigate, and I didn't bid. It was just an automatic 44mm black pvd in excellent condition. i assumed it was similar to the Birkin's Blower and so on, so a good buy in general. I am surprised at the relatively low original cost price, although that would be a bit more now obviously, as it was a number of years ago.

I'd say that was a bit low ..... mid £300's more like it, altho PVD a tad less sought after ...
