You can add me to the list of guys who sent in a sase.

I gave up on ever hearing anything about a new printing.

There is enough information out there now that it is getting
to the point that his s h i p  may well have sailed.

IF a new one ever DOES get published.... I will probably wait and
see even then. As I say, I have pretty much given up.

I loathed for that book but wouldn’t spend the money when it was highly sought after. I settled for his less informative $15 pocket guide. Today, I think it would be difficult to nail down accurate values and a wide price range doesn’t help much. Lots of variables to “worth” and anyone who has been around old tools very long knows that a sudden change in wind direction can make a tool double in value overnight. Schwarz’s blog could send whatever he mentioned or used to crazy prices on the auction site.

If I put my copy on eBay will I have to pay capital gains tax?

I checked one out at the library many years ago. I didn't see the fascination over a wanna be $200.00 book, so finally quit trying to snag one on ebay.

I snagged one of Ebay for less that $40  I think it was listed incorrectly by the seller.  I have only looked at it a couple of times
I got it mostly to see what the fuss was about.
