I can just imagine this guy...he finds this box with a quaint reel of film in it...thinks "wow, this has gotta be worth something"....a friend tells him he knows a fella who knows something about film....the seller phones this film collector, asks him what it's worth...the collector tells him "ah, you'll probably get two fifty ($2.50) or two seventy-five ($2.75) or so...!!!

I seem to recall a thread like this a couple of years ago about somebody listing a Walton Laurel and Hardy for the dollar equivalent of a pretty respectable new car, but that had nothing on this.
