Donít get discouraged, now when you see one for half price you will feel like youíre getting a deal. LOL I donít know how it is where youíre at, but here in MN most pumps, especially visibles go for more than they should at farm auctions. I think its because most of the people attending arenít knowledgeable about rarity and value...If they havenít seen one in 50 years, and its for sale, well you know the rest.
I talk to farmers all the time that think a washed out red crown globe is worth 800-1000 bucks. I tell them it is if they can sell it for that. I then offer to sell mine to them for half that and they look at me funny. go figure.
Still looking for an original Gray & Green Crown.
