          I actually think, looking at what's on there, that's not a bad price...
          Its just that not only are 57ers a specialist field, but mini's, ribbon bars, stickpins etc. is another even more specialised area within that!!
          So, this wont be for everyone, but someone out there will love it!!!

            I wondered if a few of us with different areas of interest could make an offer and get this between us.

            I would be interested in having the stickpin groups but have no interest in the medal bars, the mini chains, the button hole awards or the mini medals.

            It's a big price on your own but split up between someone who collects medal bars, mini chains, stickpin groups etc it wouldn't be quite so bad and there are some really great pieces in there.

            If anyone is interested just shout.

            Cheers

              I'm mostly interested in the stickpins, myself. Particularly the large combos (7/8+ and RK combos, as I have a good RK combo collection going)

              But not opposed to the medal bars and chains..we'd have to find a group of people and then haggle who gets what. Lots of trust involved, since it all would get shipped to one person

              Ribbons are a huge chunk of that cost...if we don't have someone who wants those, then we're not likely to make this happen

                I would grab a few items. Esp. the miniature medal bars and chains. Plus some of the ribbon bars. The thing is who has that amount of money to front it??????

                  Rudy perhaps you and Brig could share the mini - medals and chains. Perhaps Brig and I could share the stickpin groups. Even the mini Rk with oaks, swords etc I wouldn't look to beat someone to as I have a few already. We just need someone who wants the lions share of the ribbon bars and perhaps the Tr bits and the button holes and perhaps this is worth an offer.

                  Cheers

                        Gents,

                        Based on my calculation I would pay £3800 for the whole lot, that is 4450 Euros or so, I am pretty sure the seller will come down, week by week they are reducing the price. It is very difficult to sell such a collection in one go.

                        Then we could do a quick sale: we would make a list of the items dividing the whole purchase price in a realistic way, I would put some acceptable margin on top and whatever can be sold here I trust will bring back 50-60% of the invested money, the rest will go for sale on eBay.

                        Obviously if someone else wants to do it, I am interested in buying the "rest" in bulk.

                        Andrew

                          I think at that price, a 50-60 percent markup will result in slow moving. I don't see that much meat on the bones, unless the Imperial stuff is all gems

                            I did not mean 50-60% margin. What I meant is: if I can sell (with let's say 25% profit) half of the items here on the forum, that would bring back 50-60% of the invested money quite quick so I do not need to keep 4500 Euros in the collection for long.

                              An interesting lot for sure ... and yes, at the right buying price there is some money to be made.
                              With both money and sufficient time, you can move it all and still make a nice little cent.

                              I thinks that Andrew's guess on price is not that far off ... however, still too rich for me at current asking price.
                              Once it gets around the 4K mark and you have about four members will to front 1K each, then I might be interested to join.
                              I just don't know enough about mini's and stickpins and their values, but I'm sure some members here do know them very well.
                              The how's and when's of splitting the group, selling and shipping will be another story of course ....

                                He will not sell it for 4K, I have offered him just that a couple weeks ago.
                                I am interested in buying it all, but the seller thinks it is worth 5k+
