I remember the days that cylinders like this would sell in the ball park of $3000.00

I can't imagine paying $996 for that title, except for the fact that its a really late production cylinder. Personally (just my opinion), there is not much in the way of Edison recordings that is really exciting... :roll: "Honey" is not a "hot" song, but rather a mediocre tune and certainly overrated, especially for $3,000. Obviously, if you bought one for that price, it wasn't such a great purchase as this recent sale indicates...

Maybe not a "Hot" tune Curt, but a "Great" electrically recorded BA none the less:

Way to go Billybob! I was going to say the same thing. Thanks to Norman--several late blue amberol reproductions can be purchased reasonably at $80.00 each.

Several years ago I sold 11 of 12 electric 5600 and 5700 series blue amberols that were all New Old Stock and known songs that were "Hits" in the 1920's and very jazzy. As I recall--I got around $900.00 for most of them and a couple sold for $300.00. I have never seen a late blue amberol sell for more than $1,000.00; but I was out of the hobby for several years and did not follow auctions so you could be right. I am going to list my very last original New Old Stock copy of Blue Amberol #5647 "There's A Rainbow Round My Shoulder" by the Golden Gate Orchestra on EBAY and it is very jazzy and peppy. I got a resin copy from Norman that will last practically forever; and don't care if I have original or reproductions as long as I can play the vintage songs on vintage equipment. Anyone want to guess what it may sell for?

Last copy of 5647 "There's A Rainbow Round My Shoulder" that I sold on Ebay mint condition with lid sold to 1 bidder for my starting bid of $200.00. Good thing I started the auction at $200.00 as who knows where it might have ended.

Back in early 2000 I remember a blue amberol in the 5700 series sold for $3300.00 Too old to remember the actual title but if I remember right it was said to be only 8 known copies to exist.
Darren Wallace was the expert back then on late 5700 titles and I believe he owned a number of them.
