    This old feathered cap was listed on eBay for a whopping $299 "buy it now" price.

    Not one often seen, however value no where near seller's pipe dream. I sent a message commenting that it is listed in the books at $35, and made an offer for a bit more. No dice, seller was convinced it was The Holy Grail of beanies.

    About a month later, I checked the listing, still there, price dropped to $199. I sent another note, kindly asking if he'd lowered expectation. He responded that he'd been contacted by no less than 50 collectors, some were very rude about his price. LOL, the Coca-Cola collectors are a spirited bunch! Seller thanked me for my polite correspondence and made an offer... let's just say "under a hundred" ;0).

    Persistence often pays off when collecting. And a little honey never hurts.

      The hat is a nice addition to your collection. Can I ask if you know how old the hat is. And what time period it comes from." Just wondering" God bless

      Thanks Henry, glad you asked. Checked the book again and it's listed as 1959 (not 1950).

      Another feather in your cap DN. I see plenty of ads with Coke items marked at the "please send my kid to college" price. If it's something that needs to be in the collection, it's worth reasoning with the seller and explaining the actual value. Otherwise, I follow the ad to see how long it remains up.
