Just not fair

Post by JohnGoldsmith » Sun Jul 18, 2021 3:39 am

Well the lovable bunny rabbit that you all love beyond words. Needs just one more small itty-bitty eight tail to finish his basic set. Well right now I was loaned the last coin to take some pictures. I have to return the coin tomorrow. Now if a certain rodent was to sell that POS collection he has, it might pay some on the last one. I figure his set is worth two cents over melt. So close yet so far, not fair.

That missing piece is one rare bird. It was the last of the 8TF's I was able to see in hand and photograph
often the crusher of hopes and dreams

Meh, I had two, but I gave them away to friends of mine... ;)
Well, one was a friend, the other guy I had just met, but he seemed okay to me... :shock:
I go totally NUTS for WOW! VAMs!! Or is that from WOW! VAMs?

What one John? 14.17 I would guess.
They all must be easy too find.

14.17 and 4A are the two I immediately think of. But the 4A would not be a basic 8TF set piece.

Correct, 14.17. Took about 100 pictures of close ups. But I would starve if that was my day job.

Rodent is a liar, he would have given both away.
Here is one picture.

14.17 has by far the fewest sales entries of any 8TF VAM in my database – just 3 since I started compiling it in 2005.
It has even fewer than 1889-P VAM 23A does (4).
When in doubt... don't.

Please let me know if you do remember... that one isn't in my database.
When in doubt... don't.
