The widow of a friend who died is interested in selling his 1977 RB-800 wreath. Does anybody have an accurate current market price estimate? I'm guessing in the $2500-2700 range. She prefers to sell it locally in the Asheville area.
Your guess may be right.
Current sellers seem not to have got the message.
Here's one on eBay right now -- RB800 wreath -- with a starting bid of $4,000. With 2 days to go, still no bidders. $30 shipping.
Here's a flying eagle model, listed at $3,850 Buy it Now or Make Offer. Shipping included.
And here's a hearts and flowers version, offered at $6,532 Buy it Now with $125 shipping. It's from Japan, source of many over-priced 1970s Gibsons.
Based on the actual eBay sales from the past 90 days, I don't think these sellers are going to get anywhere near their asking prices. Your guess looks accurate.
You shouldn't have a problem at $2500. Especially with a good case.
