I bid on a Nikon Zippo (unused) a few weeks ago. Never though it woulda brought this much cabbage...
I can't remember the lighter, but Nikon used to give stuff like that away as part of sales programs to employees of dealers. The NASA thing looked familiar, I've got a Nikon jacket with the same shuttle logo on a sleeve-patch. I've got a Nikon thermometer too - nice for the wall
Like I said in another post recently, I wish the used prices would regain some kind of sanity. For instance, D200s were going for $599 new a month or 2 ago, and the used prices (even on keh) are $700+. What the frack?
Zippo the name wasn't registering at first. LOL!! I thought for sure when I clicked on the link you were looking to buy another camera bag.:biggrin:
Yeah that was a sweet deal on those D200's. :biggrin:
I'm betting it was more of a NASA freak that bought it than a camera geek - although its not unheard of for a camera geek to spend too much on stuff either
Not related to the D200s, but this is a chance to say how esctatic I still am to have found a 24-70 six weeks ago used for $1275. :biggrin: - ever so slight hairline crack at the edge of the filter threads. Filters go on fine and the lens works perfectly.
I'd hope it's a collector of high end Zippos, not a nutty fanboy from DPreview. :tongue:
Alot of the special Zippos go high as it is but, now I wondering what I can get for my Nikon pen. It writes really good and, has no noise at all in any speed.
What was your high bid, $5?
I actually gave away a Zippo lighter the Nikon rep gave me years ago. It had a large Nikon logo on it, not a NASA/Nikon one like this. I didn't smoke so I didn't need it.
Ya know, I noticed that all the stuff with a Lamborghini logo on them run a high price, too. Birds of a feather ....
