I'm looking on Ebay USA, Germany and UK, but all sleds (empty or with
old dicks) really go for Big prices.
Since i read it on this forum, i also put my bid price level up, but
most auctions end on times that i can not follow it, so i'm always
outbid by $0.50.
I will continue the hunt, but there is a maximum price, since i also
heve to consider the S&H costs.
I will try to get one.
