Just some more comparison points, FWIW. As a naive newbie, willing to believe that these were worth a lot, I found one at local antique shop that was in general very minty and shiny, original box and papers, $35. I noticed that the hone was cracked, though, and passed. Picked up one for $17 shipped on eBay, but when I got it, it looked like the edge of the blade had some waviness, not just a simple hone job, and there's some rust on the handle. Got another for $25 shipped, much better condition although hardly mint. Came with original box and papers, and a second blade in a plastic case. I now think I overpaid for that too, but live and learn. Anyway, I've got mine now, and at some point may actually shave with one.
