Picked up two Shiva's

Post by edteach » Tue Jan 17, 2012 4:02 pm

On is in excellent condition the other has some minor glue reaction on the bottom but still stands up. The face is fine. I got it with an auction lot and most of the others have the same {glue} reaction to the back. the red Shiva is fine with no damage. I paid 38 shipped. What do you think did I get ripped off? I paid this because the Shiva's are so hard to come by. This will make 4 for me. The back of the Shiva is good on the yellow one, its the base that is a bit dodgy. any thoughts will be appreciated.

Congratulations! I've been keeping an eye out for Shiva's for you. Sooner or later I'll find some to add to your collection.

As for the price, "Everything is worth what the purchaser will pay for it" - Publius Syrius. It's a little more than they're worth, but I often spend more on something I want/need, then after I have a few of them, I'll only purchase them if the price is right. (Unless they're exceptional in some way, e.g. beautifully marbled)
