$250 for the cylinder? Wow. I have the song on a flat disc and did not know it was done on Edison cylinders. Not selling my version either so sorry I can't help you but that 250 kind of blew me away.

$250 isn't really out of line for a great (and rare) record like that. I think my NOS DD of it cost me $150 which I gladly paid. I lucked into my cylinder, it's fun to have it in both formats.

I'm a little confused by your comments. The Victor version is pretty common, I've had it at least twice. The Edison isn't. Of course it's always nice to get a deal, but Kurt gets high prices for desirable records and good for him. I still don't think it's an unfair minimum bid, but hey, he can ask what he wants, right? In 35 years of collecting, I've seen just two DDs and two BAs of it for whatever my experience is worth (likely not much!) and judging by the lack of responses to this since you posted the ad originally, I'd think that's also saying something to it's rarity. :monkey:
