That's a very good point!

I don't know if this seller owns or owned a projector, but just imagine how much higher the print might have went with actual screenshots from the print! [Eek!]

I did offer, but geography was against us. From that you can deduce that the owner did indeed, not own a projector Osi.

Dino is right on target ..in fact just about everybody's opinion on this thread is probably on target. It does give me a feeling of security in knowing that my stereo/scope Super 8 print...that I bought for 250 dollars about 7 or 8 years ago could be a source of needed money, if things get really bad. But right now...I'll just enjoy watching it every year or so...seeing the great colors...hearing the outstanding stereo re-recorded sound..and enjoying it. Maybe that's all the buyer of this print had in mind. He or she is just a lot more endowed with cash than most of us. At that high a price, he or she could not be buying it for an investment to sell for a profit.

You never know Gary, after all who would have thought 7 or 8 years ago that these could fetch £1000?

Given there won't be any more...ever... who's to say that the money paid when one is unearthed (usually through bereavement sadly), doesn't go higher and higher.

After all, the money paid versus the time that passes when one of these in top condition does become available, is already forming an exponential curve if plotted as a graph!

Perhaps in another 7-8 years we may be on here discussing the first print to break the £5000 barrier.. who knows?

Just make sure, whoever has one of these to use for purpose, that you treasure your asset dearly and project it only on an immaculate, trustworthy machine, or else you may be throwing away a serious amount of money as well as giving all us Super 8mm Derann fanatics on here that would, one day, truly adore a copy of this, an horrendous nightmare!
