    Yes, that was my point. He will have spent twice what it's worth to restore it.

    As an auctioneer, I can tell you that people go out of their minds bidding on something. Its a totally different mindset as opposed to just walking into a store and seeing something you want. Its almost a 'screw you, its mine' thing.

    Its the chase when coupled with desire to own the item that overpowers ones sense of reality, happened to me with my WWII F/S knife not saying what I paid for it but probably 1/3rd more than what its worth for it.

    I now have a limit and if its surpassed then too bad next time, though I have become very good at sniping online auctions on fleabay....

    Last September, I sold a Mark III fore-end to a member on this forum for $65.00 which I thought was a fair price. It was walnut but
    without the volley sight and in nice condition - no dents or cracks
