    While trying to sort out old items in secures and bank boxes, I found some old items that can no longer be made or found, is there any interest and market for them ? Any price indication on what they might be worth, please ?

    For example :

    1) Crafted items that read :

    Crafted by NameofCrafter
    Exceptional

    2) - Various tems like these (also shields which may have Spell Reflection charges, Protection charges, various resists, Strength/Cunning/Agility charges, Intelligence/Strength/Dexterity bonuses, Self Repair 1). weapons may come with Curse, Paralyzation, Clumsiness, Mana Drain, Weakness, Feeblemind charges:
    Item1.jpg Item2.jpg Item3.jpg Item4.jpg Item5.jpg Item6.jpg
    3) - Various tems with Teleport, invisibility charges.

    4) - (practice Weapon)

    Thanks!

    Crafted by ____ " double exceptional are worth about 25k a piece - sometimes you might find a buyer who might pay a bit more for a suit with the same name or a name that is either historically or aesthetically attractive. Most people who collect old armor, do not collect this type as to most it simply looks like a normal piece of armor.

    The old charge items sold for about the same with the exception of the invisibility items or teleport rings. The old charge items can be turned in for points now and so their worth is based off that. I'm unsure of the current going rate for the invisibility items or teleport rings but it is typically more than point value unless it has very low charges. The only exception to value that would increase it would be items with maximum charges. I have a couple, but there aren't very many around to my knowledge. As a collector those are generally more attractive than random numbers.

    The old tags from are what durability/power-based weaponry pre- AoS turned into whn they converted. They might be worth 10k a piece. I don't believe they have a point value, but you could always check them via a trash can. There are very few who collect this type of armor/weaponry as it isn't easily seen as a "rare" item.

    You might check with The Scandinavian, he has a soft heart for all things metal and may be one that might be interested in them.

    Thank you very much, do you know what would be the maximum number of charges to see if I have any ?

    I also got odd items like boots and sash with charges.... Does it matter what the item is ?
    I mean, are there items which are rarer and harder to come by then others with charges on?

    Another oddity I found, is a shield with Strength, Dexterity and Intelligence bonuses all -10 (negative). I also got the version with all of them 10 (positive), though....

    Also found a 5 pieces full set of Tree Ornament jewellery (ring, bracelet and the 3 different types of necklaces)..... worth anything good ?

    I also found this one which I imagine is a gem, I have not seen another that I can recall of....
    WaterTroughWest.jpg
    as you can see, only East and South can be crafted..... http://www.uoguide.com/Water_Trough . One of a kind ?

    I believe the maximum charges for most are 100 with the exception of item id which is 200.

    Item type generally doesn't matter in my experience. The items can't be worn as they passively eat the charges.

    The -10 is an item with "curse" charges and the +10 is one with "bless" charges. They aren't worth anymore than any other charged items as once the charges disappear the bonus will no longer be given. The item dispenses passively which means when you put it in it will auto-use a charge every time it can so the charges go fairly fast. You can try to "item id" to see if it'll reveal the charges. For some reason they go invisible occasionally.

    Tree ornament jewelry is worth about 3m a piece. A full set of tree ornament jewelry is 6 pieces (ring, bracelet, earrings and 3 kinds of necklaces). If you have all 6 you might get a couple more million above the piece price.

    Prepatch deeds are worth about 150k generally, with some of the more rare ones like the flour mill or the big forge might fetch upwards towards 1m. Similar to there being multiple versions of double blessed, there are multiple kinds of prepatch add-ons. The "Facing ___" suffix are the most widely known and also easier to recognize as rare. Most folks don't know about the other prepatch versions so they are harder to sell. I sold a few small forge prepatch deeds of the same kind for 50k each. The west part will help as it makes it easier to see that it isn't modern and you might get closer to 100k. You used to be able to make the water troughs with a west facing. Not one of a kind, sorry.

    Hope that info helps you out.

    good demand for invis items. especially earrings, then boots, sashes, cloaks are too big, take up too much pack room. armor pieces mean you have to take off an important piece of armor to use it. more dangerous when trying to escape.

    teleport jewels average 50 - 100k per charge.
    invis earring used to be 100k per charge, but i usually find for alot cheaper. sometimes 10k a charge.

    you can check search for current prices.
