Paid $675 for mine - bought it from Joe Poyer about 25 years ago. He wants it back! I've got him at the top of my refusal list, but I'd rather sell it to someone else for more money! It was cheap even then, due to having a wrist repair and missing a noticeable sliver at right side of tip.

While speaking of rare TDs, does anyone here have ANY interest in a rather ugly M1880 TRB? It's all there, and all correct, and the bayonet works like a Swiss watch, but the stock is awful. It's salvagable - in fact, with sufficient work it could look pretty nice. I've got other projects ahead of it. Looking for $2000, plus freight.
