I realise it's going to sound like a smartass, but I always say that a fair price is one the buyer and seller are happy with.

But 50 bucks is more than I'd pay, that's for sure.
May have been on the losin' side, still not convinced it was the wrong one.

$50 is a lot. At the very least, that price should include shipping. I'd say that the highest reasonable price range would be $25-35 shipped. After that, someone is just trying to rip you off. Of course, it's possible the person offering it paid $50 for it themselves - I heard that, a long while back when everyone was first looking for the dinos, one of the bent leg Ceratos went for $50 on ebay.

It's a tough call, though. You want one. There aren't many available. Here's your chance to get one. But, the price is pretty high. I guess it depends on how badly you want one.

KH is right,
Price and value are two different things.

I've paid what people would consider ridiculous sums for items in the collection.

It's down to what you think it's worth to you.

50 Bucks sounds like a lot though.....

Especially when you can get a 'pretty close' straight-leg for like three bucks.

Offer the $25 to $35 if that's what its worth to you.
The seller can always say no if he wants more.
WTB doesn't mean you are willing to just pay any-darn-thing.
But, never hesitate to offer.
The seller may have shot for the sky in the hopes you'd pay,
but he may decide to sell rather than sit on his offering.

I think I paid a total of $45 for correct versions of the Ceratosaurus, the palm tree, and the Stegosaurus a while back.

Cerato keeps guard over my collection (with an evil laugh). :lol:
