Only 400 in Am'n grade.

Why you guys knocking this one?

20s gold cases are difficult to find in any condition.

I offered 3,800 for this watch before it went on eBay. It was on ebay for one day at $10,000. Then someone thought better of it and put it up at NR.

Then someone else tipped me that it may a fishing effort, meaning the seller already had a buyback price in place.

Does anybody have an Am'n Grade with a small balance variation to sell? I know of one but the owner is not willing to sell.

Unless you are digging in Jon's backyard these are tough to find!

I have one in my collection that makes that one look sick, plus it is a triple signed PL!

Tagline: are you figuring at the new gold?

When I was offered the watch gold was at 1575, and I figured at that price.

I would have pursued it further but i'm tired of these manipulative listings!

He is impossible to deal with, his prices change like the wind changes direction.

Do yourself a favor and don't bother with him, it is not worth the bullshit and frustration!
