Just look at the price this one fetched on eBay just recently.

The buyer is due for a shock as it appears that the sale only includes the last half of the feature "Kelly The Second".
The listing does seem to make this clear by saying "reels 4-6".
The accompanying short is a two-reeler and is on the other spool.

The seller did revise the listing as a result of someone informing him that the feature was incomplete, but it did not stop the listing making an exorbitant price. Perhaps the buyer has the other three reels and was willing to pay that to get his missing reels to this feature.
Incidentally I've never heard of 'Kelly the Second'. Is it a rare film?

i was bidding on it and then noticed the missing reel and asked the seller to look around...I think based on how he is selling his dad's reels someone is going to get the other as an unidentified reel.

It just goes to show that some sellers are incompetent.
