Military 252 Contest Yo! Ended.

Postby campmaster-k » Wed Apr 03, 2013 2:38 pm

Throw down your best guess on this 1952 beauty. The selling price of the Military 252 is a mystery to me so this will be interesting as I own one of these.

Stop guessing 1 hr before end of auction. Anyone can play and win. The more players the more fun it is.

The prize is a nebo flashlight perfect for tear camping.

Step right up ladies and gentlemen.

Welcome to the Show!

Ladies and Gentlemen please, would you bring your attention to me

A feast of a lantern for your eyes to see,

like nothing you have ever seen before

watch closely as I open the door ( to Ebay) - your jaws will be on the floor

After this you will be begging for more.

Ladies and Gentlemen good evening, here you will see and seeing is believing (how much people pay for this stuff)

please check to see if you are still breathing

If you will please come in closer, you are about to be bowled over

By the wonders you are about to behold here.

Ladies and Gentlemen place your guesses. ( I borrowed this song from a band called Saliva) seemed to fit.

I will say $75. But since I just won a flashlight in the last one, I will only be guessing for bragging rights. :D You can give it to second best if you want. Although I would take another one after seeing how nice the first one was, so maybe in a month or so? :twisted:

After looking through the listings (current as well as completed), checking out the shipping cost and considering it's of Korean War vintage,-------if it does sell, I'm guessing an experienced sniper like myself (best snipe to date--3 seconds), will wait until the last seconds and bid $91.77.

Ah! This sounds like a challenge! Been sniping fleabay since it opened next door to my house in San Jose. Gosh I love sniping. I love this lantern too. Not a collector, but after being on this forum for a while now, I am really starting to think I need a side hobby.

I also believe it will be a no sale, but with that taken, I will guess $61.95.

That's a pretty cool lantern. I might have to bid on it myself.
