A dreamy Silver Beaver?

What happened here?

I realize it is old, but that valuable? Gotta find my box full of these somewhere. 😉

Since it’s a Silver Beaver medal as opposed to a neck medallion, that means it’s from the very first year the Silver Beaver was offered, 1931. The Silver Beaver switched over to the neck ribbon style the very next year because the medal was too heavy to be pinned on the chest. So these are very “rare” if I can use that term here.

That I understand, but the opening price is almost 10 times the low Cuhaj closing value, and that was in y2k+- when money was being thrown from windows.

Be careful quoting Cuhaj’s Values. I have found them completely out of whack with Reality. I have no idea what the Beaver go’s for but I would bet the starting value isn’t far off the going price.

Only two bidders. Let’s see if it gets sniped.

Probably worth it, yes. In eight or nine years (have I been on eBay THAT long?!?!?!) I think I’ve only seen one other one. Very scarce.

Who ever g***e is he or she realy want it bad. I wouldn’t be surprised if some deep pocket snipes it at the last few seconds.

$3529 final bid. Only two bidders, but that’s all it takes for a real auction!

@Zorro777: Better dig out that box of them that you had. I’ll take two.

I’ll take two also!!!
