Whoa. That is quite the treasure!
Congrats to the buyer and seller!

I don't know what impresses me more, the collection or that someone offered to buy a $1500 item in less than an hour!

MWF in bowl
30 Israeli blades (thank you shaving-shack)
Took the MWF for a spin, and I can see what the fuzz is about...wow!
Luck is my middle name. Mind you, my first name is Bad.
My first score was a Progress, a col Conk travel brush in a tube and Unscented AOS soap in its wooden bowl. That was almost 11 years ago...I still have the Adjustable, the brush had been grinded to a short loft from use and died in a resto attempt .
I bought another puck of the AOS after the first one got finished. Finished that one before finding B&B, well the rest is legend in my household already.
Sold for $1500.... the buyer was me
Now before you organize torch and pitchfork riots, please let me explain. I was given the exclusive opportunity to purchase this set (because I asked first) for said price of $1500. I had no idea what a reasonable price for this set was and I had no one to consult. I posted the offer, as it was presented to me, on the BST to get an unbiased gauge for the value. Thank you to all of those who made offers and please accept my apologies for this whole fiasco.
Now my plan for these is to in fact digitally scan every single page at 600dpi (really high resolution) so that the content will be preserved for all time. When this project is complete (or in the process), I would like to share the content with all who are interested (and there seems to by quite a lot of you). Now I am debating how to go about this. I am in the hole $1500 and I want to make the content available, but I don't want to be in the hole $1500 in doing so.... I have thought about selling issue reprints for a much lower price ($10-$25), or there is the option of accepting donations for this project. Please voice your opinions.

If something is offered up for sale in BST, I think it should have been sold to those that made the offer irrespective of anything else.
Yeah, I agree with Paul. I think you got a few folks' hopes up, but it was all for nothing. A simple post asking "How much would you have paid?" would have gotten you to the same place.
That being said, I have a Blue Dot Fatboy for sale and I am asking $24,000. Any takers?
I don't know all the ins and outs of copyright law, but I don't think these issues would be in the public domain for several more years. I don't think you could legally sell copies.
I got my heart riped out, that's what I got!!!!...But you know, life goes on.
Some day I'll have that complete set right shaved_*****
(just say yes Seb)
