In early 2009, long after the rush, one eBayer sold CoH (#35) & S&G (#41), both super deluxe signed, together (in one auction) for £705. BH

That was me, Khamul. I sold those at the end of June / beginning of July of 2009. I had picked up several of the Super Deluxe COH when it was released, so I had a couple extras on the shelf. The Super Deluxe Sigurd and Gudrun had just been released in May and I bought only a single copy of that book, being a little skeptical of its resale potential. I actually only received my copy (#41), a couple of weeks before I sold it. I opened it, inspected it, decided that I didn't like it very much, and thought that I would get the best return if I sold it right away. In fact, I offered the book for sale with #35 COH in order to help it sell faster.

I still have a copy of the standard deluxe edition of S&G, but I came to the conclusion that the Super Deluxe S&G was not made to the same quality standards as the SD COH, nor was it as striking of a book.

As I typed this, I had a bit of deja vu:
