    Hi, all -- these items survived my house falls by being in my bank boxes. Was hoping to get an idea of their current street value as I'm trying to finance a house and considering putting some or all up on Classifieds. Don't worry about hurting my feelings, any insight is appreciated, thanks! (included a few photos below for reference)

    Old-style Statues: (Sonoma)
    • Standing - Darkest pink/red Jaana (read this was least common shade), peach Joye (read this was uncommon)
    • Busts - white, of Mondain

    Misc: (Sonoma)
    • 10,000 Diamonds Bracelet, Weddingband & Earrings (set) ---- don't believe these are still craftable?
    • Old necro reagents: Blackmoor, pumice, executioner's cap
    • Coconut, halved, facing left instead of right (not sure, might be junk)
    • Dead Wood (not sure where this came from)
    • Arcane Gems: old, non-stacking kind from around 2003
    • An Unmarked Recall Rune, Uses Remaining: 50 (think this item may be unique; graphic like nail kit)
    upload_2015-10-20_1-27-41.png
    • A deed for a reindeer raised by Mesanna
    • Practice weapons (Sonoma): a gnarled staff, a longsword
    • '03 Holiday gift sets in boxes: incl. snowman (w/dev names), poinsettia (original red), a snowflake, holiday wreath deed
    upload_2015-10-20_1-30-37.png
    • Mini-house deeds, including Thatched roof Cottage (rarest) and Tower (uncommon)
    • Various snowglobes (none notably rare)
    Other shards:
    • Various Practice weapons: a skinning knife (uncommon), a bow, hatchet, crook, longsword,
    • Europa: various old Valentine cards ('99), from/to "Jesus Christ" -- they're both blessed AND holy ;-)
    • '01 Holiday prize tickets (choice of holiday tree, snow, snowglobe, statue)
    • 2 holiday trees, more mini-house deeds, more '03 Holiday gift box sets
    • wands, etc. with Item ID charges (worth anything or throw away for points?)

    the recall rune would be worth posting. definitely an oddity, ive never seen another. could fetch a good amount. no idea on price. could be 100m, could be 300m.

    the others are a few hundred k at best. i dont think they would have much interest here except maybe as a bulk lot (at resale price, usually about half of its worth). youd get better prices selling off a vendor in game most likely.

    Thanks, Smoot. So being as it's sort of an unknown (unless someone else chimes in), would you post it as an auction with a reserve or...? I used to do some trading back in the day, but it's a new game these days.

    I've also noticed that a lot of the trading on Stratics these days doesn't seem to indicate the originating shard. Is that primarily because now with shard shields,there's a presumption that people will transport the things they buy so it's not a big issue?

    that kind of unusual item whos origin cant be located can have a very wide range in price.
    like if it were a seer item, with a history behind it it could be valued alot higher. also an event item 1 of 1 may be worth a billion at least.
    however yours, while very unusual is most likely a very old bugged item (i could be wrong) its probably one of a kind, but has common name, and common graphic. its just the combo of the 2 that makes it extremely rare.
    As for how to sell, personally with such items its as much as you would be happy taking for it. if you put it for auction, just put a reserve high enough that you would be happy if it sold for just the minium. if you want to hold out, maybe for months, you could put a much higher price, keeping in mind it also may not sell, and involve more "work", negotiating and what not to finally arrive at a sale. thats the thing about rares, all about the right buyer and how long your willing to wait vrs price.

    As for shard not being listed, many sellers (including myself) list shard when they can. To many people shard doesnt matter, and many casual sellers might not bother (or know) the shard. I dont see it as a huge issue because if a buyers really concerned about the shard he or she can look it up on Manitcores master list. ive done this many many times when seeking information on an item a may be interested in buying.

    Also for the location of an item, most people assume its on atlantic (or available to be trasferred to atlantic) unless otherwise noted. for clarities sake i always specifically state the items location, but many just assume atlantic if not listed.

    Thanks Smoot...you've been very helpful!

    I'm not familiar with Manticore's master list -- all the old "rares" sites I used to use seem to be gone or no longer maintained. If you have a link that'd be great!
