    $3.00!!!! I must have gotten started a little while later after you!
    These were about $60-$75US....and that is perhaps 10 years ago I think when I got my example.
    $3.00!! WOW - where's my time machine!

    Cheers!

    Everything is relative to the times. I began collecting in 1956. The average weekly salary was $40. Gasoline was .19 cents a gallon.
    There was an abundance of material and a shortage of collectors.
    So, the armband was about 8.5% cost of the average weekly take home gross(before the government got their share taken out of the check).

    Congrats Ewan.....my opinion is just what it is: an opinion. I guess it always comes down to what you want to pay. I've had mine for a while now and that influenced my take on the price....I didn't pay that much for it but then again that was quite a while ago. Prices have certainly changed in the last 10 years or so. Three piecers are the nicest you can get! You'll be pleased!
    Congrats on your new piece! Post some pics when it comes in!
    Cheers!
