I had an ancient copy of Dracula back in the early sixties.  I am still looking to find it online so I can see how much it was worth.  I don't have it anymore, of course.  Whacko

First Edition.  Caine Mutiny.      $1500 Dollars.  Shocked
 
 
 
I had one of these but I left it at home when I left Kansas in 2003.  I wonder if my ex-wife kept it or threw it in a bonfire.  Mine was ex-library.

Ed, I had an original printing of Tarzan of the Apes.  When I went into the Army, my mother either threw away or sold all my books, comic books, etc.  I had an original Action Comics Superman that my dad gave to me, I'm pretty sure I had an original "Green Lantern", all the 1st editions of Marvel Comics heroes.  I think I paid 12 cents each for them.  Another fortune lost...

Friend of mine bought an old cap and ball revolver for $100. Did some research on the name engraved on the grip; turned out to be a something and Allen that belonged to a Maj. in the Union Army during the Civil War, yadda yadda, but he now had prominance for the gun. Took it to a dealer that said it wasn't worth anything and offered him $100. He refused it and took it to the gunshow. One dealer offered him $300 for it with a take it now or the offer drops in half if you walk away. He walked away. Came up on a table that had several pistols from the same manufactorer and several copies of a book on the history of the manufactorer. The guy at the table was the author. Showed him the pistol, and after some discusion, my friend sold it to him for $1,200. We walked away from the table, and a guy runs up and asked if my friend still had the pistol, because he was prepared to offer $5,000 for it.
