Gold Bond 200A contest! Win a Flashlight! Ended.

Postby campmaster-k » Tue Nov 19, 2013 11:56 am

What I have learned in my life is that you should always have something to look forward to. John Travolta said in an article that I read once that the key to a successful marriage was always having something planned to look forward to no matter how small or insignificant.

So here is a small thing to look forward to. The ending of this ebay auction for a Gold Bond 200a lantern.

Anyone can and should play, it will extend your life. You must be a member of the forum. No risk, just guess the ending bid closest without going over and I will send you a cool prize. Probably a nebo led flashlight.

Please play even if you have won this contest before. All guesses must stop one hour before the end of the auction. Read through the guesses before you guess to avoid duplication.

We have 5 days on this one.

The last Gold Bond Lantern I was watching went for close to $400. My guess is this one will sell for about $150-$170.

Hmm. :thinking: Minor condition issues could knock it down a bit, but I personally would value originality over a resto or fake, so I'm going higher on this one.

$375

Since I have won before, if I win I think the prize should go to the next closest guesser.

Thanks for putting this on, Kirk, it's a fun thing. :thumbsup:

I can attest to it being a great prize. My little Nebo flashlight lives in my tool belt, I use it nearly every day.
