Title: Crotally Crazy on eBay . . .
Post by: Neil on August 05, 2013, 09:06:44 AM
Be interesting to see what this "bomper" of a Crotal Bell finishes at. I found one the same size last year on a DW rally that had sadly been bullied by the plough!

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/290953787272?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649#ht_157wt_962 (http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/290953787272?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649#ht_157wt_962)

I seem to recall Deadlock found one a similar size intact at another DW rally.

I didn't realise that there was such a collectors market out there.

Anyone like to hazard a guess at what price it will finish at?

That's a crazy price :o I'll have to search through my extensive crotal bell collection ::).
I reckon 210

I think it will ring out at 190 - the bidders seem keen as a clanger!

How did your 10 second search go? ;D

Well It took me longer to find them than to check ;D but I can certify that after exhaustive weighing and measuring, none! I repeat none of my 3 crotal bells are that big :-\
