I am going to start putting interesting eBay auctions I run across (separate from the head scratching thread The Wonders of eBay ) that I think are interesting or worth a look. Feel free to add your own, or add commentary on anything posted here. I am not the seller or affiliated with any of these sellers, by default.

For people who track such things. A bit surprised at the price he got for this one (£575). A bit higher than usual for a 1946 without jacket.
