Saw a Walzflex for sale at my local car boot, it looked quite good and the shutter speeds all seemed to work. I knew the name but hadn't seen one before. The seller wanted £50 but I wouln't pay that for one even in mint condition.
A swap meet dealer had a non-working, cosmetically poor Spartus Full-Vue ( camera-wiki.org/wiki/Spartus_Full-Vue ) tagged at (US) $55.00. So naturally I didn't buy it. I looked on eBay later that day and there were a bunch of them on offer, a couple with original box and instructions, starting at $5.00.
A couple weeks later I overheard someone ask him if he really thought he could get his price for something, and he said, "It's just a matter of waiting for someone who really wants it." I just kept quiet and continued pretending to look at things at the next booth. But I wanted to say, "No, it's just a matter of waiting for someone who never heard of eBay."
