    24" Hermagis Eidoscope No. 0 for US$12 000 .... is this realistic ?

    This lens has been popping up on eBay for the last few months with an asking price in the US$12 000 - US$15 000 range.

    The latest auction has ended but can be found by typing 200517910072 into the eBay search field.

    I realize that this is a nice lens and that good specimens of this size probably do not come up often, but are these prices realistic ?

    It seems like a very high price to pay.

    Any comments.

    Well I don't know if it's worth it. If the right buyer appears & really wants a 24" Eidoscope it may be the only game in town.

    It has been listed at least a couple dozen times at this asking price or higher.

    Peace

    I am not sure it is the same lens, but it has popped up on ebay 191522956096, asking merely US$32,500.

    Hugo, I see... That it is even being Sold -- By a LF 'Forum Member'.
    Like they say... "Very, very interesting" -- Indeed!

    Maybe, you should also offer to purchase (from the Same Seller):
    *Just joking of course...


    ... the "UBER RARE 'Red Dot' Prototype DAGOR 8 1/4" Mint in Box (Gold Dot) Goerz Lens"...

    (For a 'Mere' additional Asking Price: US $33,000.00) ???

    Maybe... The Seller will even 'Throw In' -- Free Shipping?

    "Nah!"

    Shoot, I've got a Hermagis twice as long (47") that I'd sell for half that!
