Tested 6380?

There were 37 knife patterns manufactured in the early to mid 1990s that make up the Case Classic line of knives. They are the product of Jim Parker's realization of a dream to replicate classic knives of many years past.

Hmmm! Perhaps someone should have explained the concept of value in less than mint condition and the difference between book value and actual value. ::woot::

Does nobody understand the concept of a best offer listing? Pretty common on Ebay. Could ask for a million dollars if I want to. Buyers are welcome to make.an offer or buy it from someone else. I'm well aware that the value, in this condition, as stated earlier in this post is 2500 to 3500 dollars. Not quite sure why it matters either way.

When I see a knife listed for way over what the knife is worth it immediately tells me something about the seller. Should a novice or other uninformed person actually offer that price I think the seller would take the money and run. He's fishing for sucker's. I'll just take my business elsewhere.

To clarify in this case the question asked and answered was "what should I insure it for?" Not "what's it worth?" Those are not always the same. ::doh::

Yes I'm very familiar with "best offer" eBay listings - and in my experience most sellers that successfully use that method price the item around 20% above what they expect to get, or believe the item to be worth. So if they think the item is worth $3000 for example, the price listed would be $3600 OBO.

But it's a free market so you see all sorts of price schemes. If someone is willing to pay at least 2x what an item is worth, so be it. I've overpaid myself (but not over 2x ::woot:: ) for knives I wanted and thought I'd probably never get another chance to obtain. I've also seen overpriced items go unsold through multiple listings, with the price incrementally lowered each time until either someone finally bought it, or the listing disappeared. ::shrug::

The most current price list I have from an esteemed Case dealer with 60+ years experience with Case knives shows a $5500 book value for a mint Case Tested XX 6380 Green Bone. Who would have thought a knife price on that price list could be under-priced? :) ::uc:: ::hmm:: ::shrug::

The original post knife is no longer listed on eBay and I can’t seem to find it in the sold or completed listings. I was following it to try to determine what the selling price might be. Does anyone know the outcome for this knife?
