OK, who is crazier, the guy that thought he had a 1925 Martin backpacker mandolin that was made in Mexico or the people that have bid it up within striking distance of a new one without any damage? You gotta love eBay!

P.T. Barnum might have been thinking of ebay (had it existed then) when he uttered his famous phrase.
Besides, backpacks were so big and heavy in 1925 that nobody would've noticed the weight of even a regular mandolin.
