    What's a fair price ?

    There are 2 Yashica Mat's floating around town that might be up for sale. What would be a fair asking price for one in good working order?
    I can only go by what the going rate is on ebay.

    Thanks in advance,
    Mike

    "Fair Price" is a very subjective thing...

    What may be a fair price to you may not be to someone else. If both seller and buyer are satisfied, you pretty much have a fair price...don't you???

    But, if one participant in the deal has the benefit of more or better information concerning the product or market, it sort of tips the scale a bit.

    I bought my 124G about two years ago for about $90.00 US. I was satisfied and so was the seller. I've seen them selling for as high as $150.00 or so; but I'd never pay it...I once had the chance to pick up a D for $20.00, but didn't have the cash on me at the time...the seller was even going to throw in about ten rolls of 120 film...<sigh>...

    Just my opinion, but if you got a Mat in very good to excellent condition for less than $100., you've probably done okay...under $70.00 and you've done well....

    Thanks joeyk49.

    There are a small number of B&W shooter's in town and we sort of all know each other or are familiar by sight. "Fair deals" among this group are a given. I wanted to get a ballpark figure to work with.
