Re: Super Deluxe values

ebay and abebooks are very bad parameters to find out the value of a book. Only rarity, state of the book and demand can tell us the real value.
And when it comes to selling books at their true value that is a completely different issue. One can indeed own a 1 million dollar home and sell it for 500.000 if you wish... if the state is correct, the estimate is done by a specialist it IS a 1 million dollar home. If you can sell it for that amount or not is a good test of the estimate. But when it comes to books, especially expensive ones it all comes to finding a buyer - timing is probably everything.
