What a bargain.
Who knows what collectors pay anyway...
But it's not numbered. You can buy this box for your mint but boxless lens, forge the number and add at least 200 pounds to the value.....
On the other hand a Noctilux lens for £350 'buy it now' stinks of possibly being 'knocked off' (stolen). A Noctilux for sale anywhere else would be far far more than this. You would pay double for a late model Summicron.
It's a cardboard box.
C'mon, it's not just a cardboard box...it's a Leica cardboard box!
A Leica expensive box...very much Leica indeed. I can imagine the cost of the lens fitting, or befitting, this expensive box.
Oooops. My mistake and I should have read the details closer (Blush & squirm with embarrassment!)
Methinks, it's time to sell my Alpa 24mm box . . .
In the rare book realm sometimes the (proper) dust jacket from a 1st edition is worth nearly as much as the book itself.
What's a Noctilux sans box worth compared to one with the (a) box?
I don't see the problem. As post #10 says.
Watch for my upcoming auction of an original Holga box. (camera not included) This is the original pre-hipster packaging, and includes one (1) authentic Holga lens cap, one (1) 1/2" woven camera strap and two (2) image format masks. (never used) This classic packaging will show your friends that you were cool long before the current generation of college students, and is a bargain at the low Buy It Now price of $125 USD.
That's right. I like vinyl and very often it's the album jacket that's worth money, not the thing inside with the music on it.
I still have the box my refrigerator came in. I wonder how much I can get for that?
(Even though Grandma has been living in it for 2 years now?)
To answer your question seriously, your fridge is probably worth nothing on the used market. Well, maybe 100$ or two. Therefore, its box might be worth anywhere from Zero to 10$.
You can probably sell your Grandma to a lonely Grandpa for 10-20$.
It's my Not-A-Box.
