I'd say it's worth at least $9.00, but the box market is hot so it might hit $9.25.




It's at $12.05… scorching' hot!




Yeah, I was going to bid but it's out of my price range now!

I recently sold a Meade SWA 5000 34mm eyepiece but I couldn't find the original box. No problem with this from the buyer, btw. After reading this thread, I'm keeping the box. Who knows what it will bring a few years from now.

The seller also has a vintage Meade box that comes *with* an eyepiece, though the box is stained, and a previous owner wrote on this Meade RG Ortho 7mm with a felt-tip marker. It seems hard to tell how well this eyepiece would clean up. I actually have one of these, and would like another, but I think I'll pass on this one.

And not in the least because of the stained box! Oh the humanity!

Bought my Meade RGO 7mm for $45 and would have wanted the box, but alas, there was none. Willing to have paid more if the original box was available.

Best,

You did better than I on my RG purchase. C'mon, the box alone is worth $45!

You'll be lucky if it brings anything, This thread is all hype over boxes. The only thing eyepiece boxes bring is a tad higher resale value on any eyepiece as people seem to like the boxes. Personally I could care less if it comes in a box as long as the EP is in excellent condition.

So, does the box live up to it's $40.95 cost? Any scratches, scrapes, pencil marks??? And just how does one rate boxes? Obviously LNIB doesn't work....
