The perfect camera to use in the new Liberace movie.

Forgot about this auction until just now. (Reminded by a gold 645 listing.)

From the log:

Typically, nothing happened until the final hours, in which we see one guy bidding like crazy to out-do another's automatic price matching.

Final price:

581 000 円
AU$7215 at the current exchange rate

Re-Sale Value?

It looks like the same camera came up again, maybe the first buyer is trying to make his investment back, at a slight increase?

It was probably the first seller bidding against himself from another computer on a fake account trying to make it look like someone was actually bidding on it. :P Totally illegal, of course, but I'll bet. LOL Actually while it's too pimp flashy for me (because I'm not much into yellow gold) I think it's actually quite well done. If they had done it with that skin in say all copper or silver how many of you would be sitting here joking about it? It would be rather nice I think if it just wasn't such a bright yellow gold. True, it looks like something a rap star would want to own these days if they were into vintage cameras, but still I think it was well done, for what it is. What is that alligator skin? I think the only thing I've ever seen that used for is purses and boots...
