    I am astounded by that size 7 Whippet going for $500+. It looks like a nice hat and all, but I'd have to handle one before I'll believe it's $500 worth of nice.

    I'm with you on that Billy. I have a 7 1/4 I need to put up on the bay.

    The buyer of that $511 Whippet

    I took a look at the bidding history and found that the buyer has 34,652 feedbacks! In the last 30 days they've bid on 1723 items for a total of 2494 times.

    The runner up has 32,493 and has bid on 5242 items a total of 8453 times in the past 30 days.

    Third place had "only" 2652 feedbacks and only bid on 284 items a total of 553 times.

    I thought I spent a lot of time on ebay, but those guys must live there! And be of the "money is no object" income group.

    Amazing, just amazing.

    Regards,
    Tom

    Any seller feedbacks? I wonder if they just have a mad money self supporting ebay habit. It may be like those colored disks that have numbers on them like $5,$100 etc. that you see in casinos. If you don't touch it it's not real.

    Gotta say -- that's pretty bizarre...

    Gosh...that's...just...plain bonkers!!!

    Maybe that ebay member is merely a stand-in for a film team looking for stuff to use in production? I read somewhere that members of the Seinfeld production team scouted the US high and low to look for vintage wardrobe for the Cosmo Kramer character. But then: two competing film teams? Ah, just musing...

    Pretend that you owe me nothing and all the world is green.

    That's a good thought, Mario. My thought was that maybe it's a group of Japanese buyers who are going to sell vintage hats on the Japanese market. I don't know anything about the vintage hat market in Japan (this is where we need daizawaguy to chime in); the only reason I thought of that was because that's what happened to the vintage guitar market.

    I guess that's just as plausible as my line of thought. Who - or whatever they are, it's defnitely a very strange thing. Like encountering a whale in the little pond by the village.

    What exactly are you guys looking at to make the Cuenca judgment? Is it the brim edge finish that is the clue here?
    It's still just a hat.......
