Post HOW MUCH IS MY KEY WORTH ... OR, ARE THEY TAKING THE P1**
Just having a quick meander on the keys "for sale" on RIP-OFF BAY and it must be this new medication I have been taking!

Hi-Mound keys £150 :rotfl:

I have for sale to make my fortune ... Begalli Iambic key (retail from them £250) at £500; Alberto Fratini Iambic key (unused) £220 ... available at £750! Couple of Junkers (untouched and not messed around with paint) ... will let these go for £300 each.

AM I SEEING THINGS?

Give yourself a New Years' laugh and have a look!

What planet are these people from?

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL TAPPERS AND SQUEEZERS
:lol:

I've got two Hi-Mounds here, and I think they are just great for everyday bashing.
But I've never figured out why they retail for any more than about £35.

Same here, I have a couple, one with cover complete, one minus it's cover.
Bought one off a mate for a few quid, the other was a gift from someone who found it in a shed clearance.
As you say once set up good basic bashers, but I am also bemused by the well over priced value some now seem to place upon them!

Hate to think what they would want for some of the top-end keys available!

LOOK IN YOUR CUPBOARD FOR A HI-MOUND ... WORTH A FORTUNE!

They are coming out like "teenage spots" on Rip-off Bay ... I must have thrown ££££££££££'s away over the years getting rid of these "prized" keys! I wish I still had my frog-eyed Sprite too!

:cry: :beg: :tease:

I would keep it under armed-guard because the value is rising by the minute!

I am going to try and find mine as it will help towards my pension ...
