interesting only on ebay
I have an RPPC listed. A parade with high-wheel bicycles and a horse and buggy.Tonight I had an email from a lady who is from the Westfield Historical Society. She confirmed that it is, indeed, Westfield and wanted to know if I know from whose estate the card came. My late husband was Trustee of the estate. The lady died in 1985. One box of stuff never made it to the heirs. He tried and tried to locate them but couldn't.This box has been hanging around for ages. Why? Well, because I just knew sometime, somewhere, someone would want it.posted on April 29, 2004 08:11:12 PM
In the box are 1935 and 1936 yearbooks from Westfield High, also a copy of a manuscript, signed by the author, detailing some event that took place there in probably 1905.

I have an RPPC listed.
Tonight I had an email from a lady who is from the Westfield Historical Society.
Long story short.
This box has been hanging around for ages.
Okay, now for my question...v How would you deal with the issue of how much when the historical society lady replies to the email I just sent her?
Any input is most welcome.
I would not end auction to sell off Ebay.
Let her be the high bider.
If she make a spectacular offer that you like, add a BIN for her!
Agree with dad, Let them do some bidding unless the offer is one you wouldn't want to pass up
But there is another possibility, you get your name attached to the items permanently for all to see by donating them to the Historical Society with that stipulation...
Might be something to consider...
AIN'T LIFE GRAND...
Thanks for the speedy responses!
I did know the lady from Westfield, she was very nice.
Dad, The Historical Society lady did put in a bid on the postcard.
Sparkz, yes, he did spend a lot of time trying to locate the granddaughter, to no avail.
Twelvepole, I hadn't even thought about my name being at the Historical Society.
Did the lady say whether she knew any of the heirs or not?
Like sparkz says, it's difficult to put a price on something like this.
