    Default Suprised this G-bar did not sell

    I was following this G-bar on ebay:
    http://cgi.ebay.nl/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?...:B:WNA:NL:1123

    The picture is quite bad and at first I thought the plating was gone until I realised it was the reflection of the surface.

    I was quite tempted especially because of the aestetics but realised it would probably not shave much different than my push button which is far from my favourite razor.

    How come this one went unsold?

    Well i for sure wouldn't bid on it, since its in a language i cant understand, Also its not a good picture, and its over seas for some of us here in the USA :o/

    Why go out of my way to get this one when there are so many here in the USA :o)

    What if you have an issue? and you have to ship it back? you will be out of shipping both ways :o/ Not worth it in my opinion its not like its a Rare item.
    Im just having fun :o)

    When did New Jersey separate itself from the USA?

    The link was from the dutch ebay so maybe that confused you.

    Bad picture, looks like it's in rough shape, high starting price.
    You'd be taking a risk on the actual condition and for $13 you can get a lot more.

    My gut feeling tells me that if it started lower, it would have sold for more. Ebay psychology is weird.

    A better picture would certainly have helped.

    Price was too high for condition of the razor IMHO. It is easy to buy a very nice GEM G-bar for the $10.00 to $15.00.

    I just picked up an exceptionally clean G-bar for $8. Seems like they're readily available for less than $10.

    I guess I overestimated the value of the G-bar razors. When I was on the lookout for a single edge razor, I could not find anything like that for such a price and I settled for a user grade push button.

    That one is in pretty rough shape. I have a pristine G-Bar (i would swear it was never used) and I paid less than $10 including shipping. I've never paid more than $10 for an SE....usually quite a bit less.

    Mine as well. It was filthy, but when I cleaned it up it looked NOS. It seems to have a bombproof finish.

    I got an NOS G-bar (in a box, cardboard blade insert, instructions, box of blades still wrapped in cellophane) for $4.99. I know that was an exceptional deal but I still believe there is no reason to settle for a G-bar that's in less than perfect condition. I've seen many nice ones on the 'Bay.

    Mine cost $0.00. It was my Dad's back in late 50's early 60's.
