The word "rare" in association with eBay auctions is about as meaningful as the word "gesundheit" after a sneeze.

Two like yours here. http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_trksid= ... &_from=R40

Of course that's just asking price. I didn't see any that had sold.

My apologies. I didn't look closely enough. Three listed in Worthpoint but I'm not a member there. (used your pattern number this time)

The term "Rare Finds" is one given by Case on certain low runs. I think there's info about it on their web site.

found one that sold on the bay back in June for 46.00. I would say that's probably slightly more than 1/2 of what it sold new.. Have not found that yet but I would say new in the 70.00 to 75.00 range.
