I thought this emblem would go for several hundred more dollars, so I wonder what's up with that? Is there a down trend in emblem prices?

 

Here is another of the same type that sold on eBay in 2002 for $898.88

And one from last year that sold for $998.88. I'm sure this is the emblem Mike Manifor mentioned in his auction as having reached almost $1000.. This type of cover emblem doesn't show up on auction all that often, so it really surprised me that the most current listing ended so cheaply? Someone really got a bargain! :unsure:

Gary, I do believe collector market is cyclic in nature, as is the market and housing. Have observed the trend you speak of in high end EGA's go soft just as the housing and refi markets have slowed.

So this is a perfect time to buy at the bottom end... in the past 6 months have seen allot of these high end - hard to come by not meet reserve, only to see them come back with lower reserve.

Would not surprise me to see this one or identical come back a year from now and fetch 1k or better.

An example from my collection. Of special interest is the different screwpost and roller nut found on my example. The screwpost on this emblem appears to be the original and is thinner than what is usually encountered on this pattern of emblem, so it would appear that different screwposts and rollers were used during the period of manufacture on this particular style of emblem.

It is indeed an interesting variation, could it be they simply ran out of the post & rollers while producing this generation? I too have seen subtle and or difficult to detect elements of emblems.

You may see in another post today, perhaps we look at the question of "correct" rollers for EGA's. These is a very desirable emblem and rare pattern and on my list of "wants"... along w/ dozens of others...
