I seen this myself this morning Dick. They should start it at $100.00 with no reserve & it would sell & be cheaper than all the listing fees they are paying. Oh well not my money lol

I sent a message to the seller:
I can't get a copy of it, unfortunately. It just said that it is overpriced, but they're moving in the right direction - just not far enough. I said I figured it was worth 1000 to 3000 bucks, and that they're wasting a lot of ebay fee money, and should let the bidders tell them what it's worth. The email was not ugly or anything.

This is the response I got!!

Why don't you take the time to contact Petersen Museum in LA. They have called here twice. (Alex Symms--Curator). They have stated that we have it under-priced and are interested if they find find the money in their budget. Also contact Jim Lee in Dearborn, Mich.--One of the largest collectors in U.S.-He wrote the book on Bowser Pumping Cabinets. He stated that we were probably low in our asking price. We are in process of sending a copy of your e-mail to ebay and reporting it as harrasment.

Wow - talk about rude... I don't think my email was out-of-line enough to be considered "harrasment" (as they spell it).

Man, I bet if I tried to bargain with them at a swap meet they'd call the cops and then try to have me arrested for "harrasing" them.

Interestingly, there is no Alex Symms (but there is an Alex Symcox (sp) who is a "curatorial assistant") in the phone directory when you call the Petersen Museum. The curator's name is listed on the Petersen Museum website as Leslie Kendall.
