    What are these worth #131

    Bid once before on it and lost at 30 PS. Now it's back starting at a ficticious 25 PS since there is a reserve and they paid 30PS plus post.

    Just what are these worth. I don't feel like wasting my time again !

    Well I am not sure that "worth" has much to do with it. If the works are there I'd guess 100 USD or so. I paid 50 usd per Hotchkiss fuse.

    Ahhhhhh ... the heady days of my youth when fuse arbitrage was what all young men of a certain upbringing engaged in.

    Well ~

    as far as I know a 2 Pdr. AA round with one of these on it is worth about $100 - $150 , But I don't want to buy one on a projectile and then have to take it off. A few 1 Pdrs had these and if I ever found a fuseless body then I might need one, chances are slim how ever. How ever if you want this go ahead, the seller is on Specialist also, (Grenade UK) the price will be high.

    Feh. I need to focus. Also I have a line on another early Hotchkiss gun ... that might be a problem.

    Maybe. Problem is I would have to drive to God's armpit Wisconsin to get it. Ouch.
