I just looked at the members collection for Eric. The selling price is posted with each machine. I knew things were bad but the prices were redicculus. I know that they were adding 20% commission plus 6% for taxes plus cost of shipping but even adding that it was bad. A lot of them had clocks & the clock would have sold for half of what the whole machine sold for. I guess I'll just bury mine with me when I go. Big auctions are not the way to go.

I could have told you guys this years ago, things have been steadily going down since 2008, now it is just rediculous! Im glad I was able to sell some machines for what I got for them, if I would try that now I would be better off just scrapping them. A real shame to see my investment go down the drain like this. And actually Erics machines did allot better than I thought they would, he should be glad things were not allot worse! I still love the registers though, and now when I buy anything it is totally because I want it for my collection just to have it, and know right now I would never be able to sell them in the future, just paying for the price of enjoyment. This should seperate the true collectors that appreciate these machines for the love of haveing them, and the voulchers that want to take advantage of screwing unsuspecting prey. Harsh words, but this is the way I feel.

Could not agree with you more John, not only is she walking out on stage, but she's carrying gasoline and matches!

Just wondering, Has anybody spoken to Eric about why he sold his collection? I don't know him personally but i remember seeing pictures of his collection before(think it was in the newsletter years ago)

Also curious about the candy store woody register. Was the inlaid design original? Never seen that design before.
