A Must See...

I've been listing a bunch of stuff on eBay to get ready for our vacation. I'm using the proceeds for extra spending cash.

I've got a really awesome item that I was going to sell on eBay, but I don't really know how to start out the bidding. The thing is the item is both invaluable and worthless at the same time.

In this tin there's a collection of letters, a doctor bill from Scott & White Hospital from 1928, Ration cards from World War ll with some stamps still in it, a letter of recommendation dated Nov 1911, Soldier's letter from 1919, postcards, a written job offer from J.M. Radford grocery company in Abilene, TX from 1918 for $60 per month, post card from Paris in 1918, some kind of special greeting book from Germany in 1913 and a scholarship certificate from Draughon's Practical Business College for book keeping tuition. There's letters written on American Red Cross & Knights of Columbus War Activities stationery. AND...several other things.

Anyway, it's all just amazing. It's history in a charming metal tin.

I'm planning on listing it on eBay in a day or so....UNLESS one of YOU wants to make me an offer on it. Randy and I love the idea of someone getting the letters that will really enjoy them. If that's YOU then leave a comment here, on facebook or text me and let me know.

Wow!! That's phenomenal! Due to our own vacation funding I'm not in the market for anything, but those are super cool items! History is so cool!

Interesting stuff. I have no idea how to even begin to put a value on something like that on ebay. So how did the sale go? Was there much interest? I imagine that description and listing it just right would make all the difference.
