I was watching this listing and it had some bids on it. Bids were canceled and then listed as a Buy-it-Now. Looks like someone offered the guy $800.00 for it.eBay Item #401777606454

The first Opera's were called Concert's.I don't know what's up with the crank but I think it's worth considerably more than $800.00.

Actually, it's the late Operas that were labeled at Concert due to a trademark issue with the U-S Phonograph Co. who put their "Opera" out before Edison did.

Thank you for that information.

wow, somebody actually purchased an opera or concert
or whatever they were calling it that week, for
a reasonable price.

On ebay even.

It was the seller's first listing. I hope it wasn't a scam.

Who knows? At least if paying with Paypal the buyer will be ok if it is. I think the seller would have done better to let the auction finish though. I'm sure the people that had already placed bids were disappointed.

I hope not as well. I know I've seen that crudely painted Edison logo before. Makes me very suspicious.
