    I know your not supposed to bump these up.

    But was wondering if any one was interested. If not I was going to put it on ebay.

    The worst thing about ebay is that it may not sell for its value. You can start at near value, and no one may bid on it. Or you can take the chance of starting low, and the final bid will be well below its value. Don't forget that both ebay and Paypal will charge you fees.

    Good luck, if I had the money, I'd be all over it!

    I know ebay and paypal sure do take their cut dont they. And I dont see why. Ebay owns paypal, so they should only charge once.

    **************************
    If any one is interested. I will take
    $300 + shipping and insurance fees to your zip code.

    Will take postal money order. Or paypal. But I would rather not cause it takes some of the money away. But will use it if buyer wants too.

    +++++++++++++++

    Trying to make money to move with.

    Thank you for looking.
