HOW MUCH !!!???

Post by seboomook » Tue Jan 05, 2010 11:55 pm

Take a look at this recently ended auction. What am I missing here, Is it the arrows, or heads or both.

Item number: 260530438714

Dollar to a doughnut the winning bidder meant to bid $71.00, boy is he going to be surprised by his bill.

If this is a real bid without errors I want some of whatever that guys been smoking!

Take a look at the bid history, he wasnt alone. Heads look like zwickeys and older hilbre. Maybe the bear claws?
Thanks for the widget Cody, is there a tutorial for putting those up?

The barbed BHs are Pearson 789s I think. The pink crested arrows could be Sweetlands. They look to be a pretty small diameter.

At least 3 people thought the pile was worth $700.00

I'm confused as well. The 789s are collectible but are they worth that much? I guess they were today.

Wade, Hink, can you explain?

Trap...yep...that's the head on pg.B-17 in Broadheads 1871-1971 it shows more then 12 on Rarity, Ben Pearson 789-11/32" Rnd Ferr. tip , The head is a tough one to get BUT there are more out there and the price will come down. well...I think I might even have another around here, or I might have used it last spring on that big carp that got away with the arrow......... ;) ........off to work, have a good day my freinds....Hink.....

Thanks Hink, Cool head.

I'd love to find that carp. I'm a little obsessed with barbed heads. ;)

seboomok, when you have the eBay item number, for example; 190362867841 then all you need to do is click on the gray box (small) above the normal white box you type in and click the "ebay" button(box). That will give you this

Code: Select all

[ebay][/ebay]
Now in the very middle of the bracket group paste your item number like this;

Code: Select all

[ebay]190362867841[/ebay]
That is it. When you submit or preview the code snippet will do the rest like this...

So just to clarify Pearson 789's currently have a value over $100 bucks a piece and Hink thinks he may have lost it in a carp!


You guys are in a completely different tax bracket than I am!!!!

Lucky Carp!!!!!!

Oh and, careful, there are 2 different 789s and I doubt the other style is worth $100.00

Trap - Doubt that the Carp feels lucky, he probably doesn't care about collecting broadheads. It is likely that he'd rather not have the broadhead at all.

Yes, there are 2 different 789s and the other one is very common.

Actually the round ferrule model of both the 788 (sloped shoulder) and 789 (barbed) were very rare heads 15 to 25 years ago. Even six years ago in 2004, both had a published value of $375. Even though more of each have turned up since 2004, $100 for one would be a real bargain today.

The 788 was a broadhead that Ben Pearson used personally.

When Ben put on an exhibition in Omaha in 1956, he took one of his arrows out of his quiver and signed it to the Omaha Archery Club. The arrow still has the original 788 with Ben's file marks on the edge...

Ben's personal arrow is the white crown dip arrow in the photograph below... The text below the arrow gives more information...
