Is unparallel. i had an item i looked up on ebayvthis last week. from what i found it was around 500 bucks.
so i put it on craigslist. i get the offer i was looking for and made the deal.
well he gave me a website to see the actual value of this item i sold him for 300$

And low and behold.....3500$

I was dumbfounded. what an idiot.

Yeah, when I hit my safe unit, I was so overwhelmed by all of the great stuff I found that when my friend asked to keep the Mason jar full wheat cents I didn't really think much of it. I just realized that the average wheat cent is valued at 50 cents or more. I probably gave away a few thousand of them.

Stupid is as stupid does. You live and you learn.  :'(

When you find bibles/ religious items in a locker what do you do with them?
