      It is as you were told a string holder. Not sure of value.

      This one would go between $100-$300.... depends on who's buying! I would say you wouldn't have a problem getting $200+ for it. It's very cool!!
    4. tikiray tikiray, 11 years ago
      That is, of course, if it's not a reproduction. There is one just like yours on eBay for $35 and it's a reproduction.

      TIKIRAY IT'S FUNNY YOU MENTION THAT ABOUT THE REPO BECAUSE I HAVE HAD THIS PC MANY YEARS AND I AM 99% SURE IT IS THE REAL DEAL. I HAVE BOUGHT ANOTHER PIECE THAT LOOKS VERY CLOSE TO MY FIRST ONE ,IT HAD NO BOTTOM TO IT AND IT LOOKS LIKE A REPO ,I WILL LOOK AT THE ONE ON EBAY AND SEE IF IT LOOKS LIKE THE ONE I HAVE AS WELL, I LOOK AT EBAY AND COULD NOT FIND THE ONE YOU WERE TALKING ABOUT THAT LOOK LIKE MINE ,IF YOU COULD GIVE ME THE LINK I WOULD THANK YOU VERY MUCH ,THANKS GUYS FOR YOUR HELP LAWWAT56

      Here is the link to the one like your on eBay. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=380313925691&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT#ht_500wt_922

      Some of these string holders go for $100+ and some of them go for around $20. It really depends on the style and age..... and of course who is bidding. There are a ton of reproductions on eBay, after watching the auctions for a while you'll be able to tell which ones are the real deal.
