    JUST TOO MANY 4X5 FILM MAGAZINES

    I wonder if some of you folks can advise me where I might be able to unload some of my 4X5 Film Holders. I have dozens and dozens of Riteway & Lisco dual negative film Holders. Some are brand spanking new others have some wear but are light tight. All have safety plates and plate locking tabs. I thought about ebay but I only have purchased there and don't know anything about selling there. And, if I did, I would still not know what to price them at. Any suggestions or comments are welcome.
    Ciao,

    Sil

    Depending where on planet earth you are, the price will be different somewhat. This is due to supply and demand!

    In my country, reasonably good secondhand ones in the local camera stores are around the $25.00 mark not so good ones $20.00.

    At camera fairs they go as low as $10.00 for reasonable condition, up to $40.00 for as new condition.

    Your call.

    I think the going rate is more like $10 each if in good condition, with maybe a deal on larger lot sales. You can unload them on largeformatphotography.info/forum (in the buy & sell area) or here in the classifieds. They sell at good prices on ebay too. Just list them in relatively small lots (say lots of 5). Stagger the listings too - don't just list them all at once. If you list a big lot you'll get much less for them, and if you don't stagger your lots by a day or so you'll also lose bidders. If you just want to get rid of them on the other hand, ebay is a sure fire way... as is here. Hell I'd buy a couple.

    Someone listed something like 16 individual listings for Grafmatics last night. Not a good selling strategy.

    Well, I'm on Highway 80 East and I don't see you. Can you wave a hat or something?
