    They'd be more likely to entertain offers I'm sure...Also depends how much $$ he has invested in it and how soon he needs to re-coup his money. These busts aren't all too difficult to find at a much more reasonable price...In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if Gottlieb is trying to triple the return on his investment by hyping the story.
    Just my opinion...
    Cheers, Glenn

    Thank you for your thoughts Steve. I agree that the only market place for it would be to a TR collector, outside of our little world, the market is limited.

    Out of curiosity, what value would you place on just the bronze if you were asked to name a price to buy it at?
    Sorry for late response Adrian.
    Well as TR collector with an interest in the period knowing that the piece has a significant damage spot, but with the provanance, I would venture a guess at 2 or 300 euros tops. Similar to German Cross in gold or silver with the enamel busted out of it.
    That is my personal and professional opinion for what it is worth.
    I hope this helps.

    Thank you Steve, you know more about these pieces than most of us and your professional opinion is much appreciated.
    I hope it will shed some light on the piece for those of us not so well acquainted with the TR history/art combination.

    I think the bust is over priced but if it was by Arno Breker it might be worth the money.

    Gottlieb considers himself a superstar when it comes to militaria and thus demands superstar prices, wait for one to come from private hands, it will save you money.

    all the best,

    Gottlieb is a legend in his own mind!He overprices everything and don't think he is a above selling bad stuff!!If you go to his site check out the "Bird Dagger" which he priced at $79,995 when he first put the piece on his site.Their was a discussion on this forum about it and it is a well known FAKE.Now he has reduced the dagger to $49,995 (nice of him).The only reason for his reduction is he bought it for $40,000.If i was you i would steer clear of him big time as as i stated he thinks he's a big S---!

    Honestly the SAD part of all this is he is one of the 10 major players that dictate the prices in this market...
    He asks for stupid money for stuff and gets it..
    At least 75% marked up higher than it should really be..

    Interesting in that the description says it is made of Iron.
    Odd material for a sculptured bust - which are usually
    cast in bronze.........
