Thread: Dagor!

    Dagor!

    What is a reasonable price for a 9 1/2" gold dot in a shutter? Assuming, of course it is clean?

    There is no such thing as a "Reasonable" price for a 9 1/2" Gold Dot Dagor. They are all grossly overpriced.

    I bought one in Copal that has a very, very slight separation in the front cell that's only really visible if you remove the cell from the shutter, but otherwise perfect, for $550. If it's truly mint and pretty in a factory mount, I'd probably start it at $650-750 and see what you get.

    Cheers, Steve

    Before the meltdown I remember watching one go for $1800 on evilbay. Money is tighter now but the rare stuff still finds buyers.

    shoot. So the 9 1/2" draws a bigger price tag than the 12"? I better start trying to find that money tree...

    No, the 9-1/2" should be cheaper. You can probably find a nice shooter for $600 $700 range. Even though times are tight, the really pretty, near mint stuff like Dagors, Deardorffs, Cookes, etc. seem to be holding up quite well.

    $1295 wouldn't be unreasonable today although the money is worth less.

    I just purchased a M- Golden Dagor 8-1/4" in a very clean Compur shutter from B&H for $649 and a very late standard 12" in an Ilex 4 for $300 off ebay. There were no issues with the 8-1/4 and only a minor coating defect on the rear element of the 12". I bought both in the past 2 weeks. The 12" is only 2 digits under where the Golden was supposed to start.
