    I won these on eBay for $27! The seller said they were "new" but I didn't really think they were actually new. They arrived today in their original box, with the paper still between them! Not a single rub mark or scratch!!

    I know! When people say "like new" I always expect SOME wear, but these have absolutely none! Its like they were bought and then stored in a closet forever!

    Wow those look nice, and for less than 10 buck each I would say you did very well. If they were 5x7 Then I would be very envious.

    Yeah...mine are nowhere near this cosmetic condition. Heh.

    I saw some more that were basically new in box on Ebay and was tempted, but I don't really need them to be NEW new...and I need 5x7 holders more than 4x5, but I don't really need any. 6 5x7 shots and 22 4x5 is...enough.

    Was just at Seawood Photography in San Anselmo, and they have to boxes of NOS 3 1/4 x 4 1/4 holders, box looks just like the OP's. Didn't ask the price. Did pick up 4 nice 5x7 holders though.

    Nothing like virgin film holders, especially ones older than your mother.

    I bought a couple boxes of 2 1/4 x 3 1/4 a couple years ago off EBay and was pleasantly surprised that they were indeed... unused.

    Just as happy with a set of 5x7s that had writing on the film memo area but looked brand new... used once I guess. Those were around 10 bucks a piece and absolutely clean.

    Take good care of them, they will last forever.

    The 5x7 holders I picked up at Seawood's are very clean. Paid 15 dollar each, which I thought was fair for wood holders.

    That is a great deal. Just one thing which I always find funny when people buy on Ebay, they always say they "Won". We seem to forget we paid.
    I say this as well of course.

    It use to be an auction site and "won" was pretty accurate.

    Yeah, you sure don't see the deals that you used to see.

    That was a great deal, Chris!

    What I meant was that you sure don't see as many deals as you used to see.

    Always nice to get a good deal on holders. I scored on three boxes of 5x7 Fidelity holders which were supposed to be NIB for $30 on ebay last year. Believe it or not, the were new, untouched holders. I don't think these boxes had ever been opened. I only wish I could find more like this. :smile:
