$909,000 in income fencing stolen goods on eBay He did have a great feedback record though Great prices and speedy shipping. Must be because of the low overhead.

Seems like a person that 'acquired' it and does not know what he is talking about, especially asking $3500. I know nothing about steamers so maybe the engine is worth something? Or not. A lot of time spent on a model does not necessarily raise it's value. If your getting rid of something, unless it might be appraised, you think the value of the object is more than it is. Example, getting rid of things around the house. It most instances the value might be what a person is willing to spend on it not what the seller wants for it.

Ken, I just had to read what the seller said, and I think you're right in that he simply picked up the model somewhere, and is trying to "flip" it over for big bucks---.

The comment about the "thousands of hours" spent on it made me want to put on my hip boots, as the manure was starting to get a bit deep---.

WOW!!! I guess you can sell anything there! Amazing. Either someone has plenty of money to burn or they don't know what they are getting. Maybe we'll see something come in the Steam Boats forum.
