I've been watching this (http://cgi.ebay.com/Vintage-Regal-8-String-Mandolin-with-Case-No-Reserve_W0QQitemZ230321230811QQihZ013QQcategoryZ10 179QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem)Regal mandolin for a few days (so hands off! ;)) and I was wondering how much you think it will go for.

Now that you've shared it with a few thousand of your closests friends with MAS more than it would have gone for before. :)

Yeah, I thought of that before, but I figure it won't make too much of a difference, as anyone who would want it had probably already seen it.

Plus, I just couldn't wait to find out its worth...

$50 to $100 dollars.

It's probably not worth much more than that but with the craziness for 2 pointers it will go for more. These really weren't fine mandolins. I have my Uncle's A style that is the same vintage. I wouldn't own it still if it hadn't come down through the family.

Well, it's kind of hard to tell from the displayed photo (the one used when the listing is seen in a search) that it's a two point. I would guess maybe $150 dollars at the end.

That neck joint scares me. I'd steer clear, but guess it'll end up $150-200.

That is without a doubt the ugliest sunburst finish I've ever seen :) !

It's so hideous it's..well..erm...no, it's just hideous :(

Let us all know how you go, Link. Good Luck !

Actually, I like the sunburst, but to each his own.

Went for about what is is worth.
Ebay has returned to earth.

Hey, you're a poet and you didn't even know it.

Anyway, I think that, as far as Regals go, this model is relatively rare-I've never seen this kind of wide two-point body style.

Yeah. I think I did pretty well. I'm looking forward to seeing what the tone is like on this thing. I've never seen a two-point in this shape.

Can anyone date this thing? And has anyone seen a similar model?
