The condition of the piece and the "desire" for it by the market will set a price. It has been observed that a number of more successful second hand stores have a computer on site that has a web tie and an eBay window up and running. (No offense to Craig's list.) Why do you suppose a store that buys and sells second hand stuff would do something like that? A Universal #1 in the original box is worth about $18.00 Without the box or a box in bad shape is worth about $12.00 in the Ms, La, Tn area as of Dec 2008.
