I pretty much agree with Dick's observations, both as to those on the market being reassemblies and values. Like everything else it will be worth what someone is willing to pay. Perhaps interest and values for trapdoors will continue their apparent decline, or perhaps pick up if new collectors begin to search for treasures. For a scarce item, current collectors lacking an example may bid very high prices just to "complete the set."
The cartridges are extremely scarce. The carriers, more so, and I have never seen any but the illustrations in Al's book.
Congratulations on a nice collection!
