Re: You've Got Grail! The Valuation Thread

Any ideas on a Konami salamander pcb? I know one has been for sale here at 600 for a long time, so I know it's worth less than that at least!

Thanks!

Cyvern with mobo.
If it’s an original the last one on an other forum was sold for 800 euros.It’s a pretty rare game.

I bought a Japanese one w/ art and instructions for £550 (probably more like £570 with currency conversion to yen) earlier in the year. Although given how GBP has tanked since then, you can probably add £45-£50 for the same transaction now :problem:

I'm sorry mate, unfortunately I'm not selling one :(
I'm looking for one but 800€ is too much money for me. I'll forget it.

Bummer :( Thanks for letting me know, though :)

I probably wasn't banking on necessarily going as high as 800 EUR either. The last few I've seen in the last year or so have been more like 80,000 yen. Still a lot...but a bit better, I guess.

I usually do 300 yen basic fowarding and mark everything at 500 yen and a 'gift' - so no Customs and less than £3 comission ;) Although no insurance either :oops:

STV actually had a Cyvern on his site for I think 79k (with free shipping) that sat there for ages before it went recently-ish. He seems to mark everything down to avoid Customs by default, anyway. Although I tend to only shop there as a last resort :lol:

Same here FromJapan is cheap for small items. Rinkya is only good for item over 200'000 or more.

Both proxy bidders send you the item as you tell them. 500yen per item is fine. :D

I think 1500/2000yen is the sweet spot (per item), but we also get taxed on the shipping value.

It's not so much about avoiding customs, more like making the charge as low as possible.
