Thanks! Looks great, but the lid surface may have some issues. It'll be fun pulling off that sticker on the front as well :x .

A talking machine might be the closest you'll get to a time machine.

Plus BUYER'S PREMIUM 23% ($74.75) = $399.75

Where did the "No Money" in the title come from?

At the time of the post, the high bid was only $10 or so.

That is still half of what it would have been in 2008.

I sold a hand crank 8-9 about a year ago with missing grille cloth for $650 in California. I still have a rare electric 8-9 that sounds great!

I have the hand crank version as well, I love mine, and it sounds incredible. Aesthetically I love the look of it too. I paid a lot more for mine, but have zero regrets. I’m never getting rid of it. It’s a truly awesome machine!
