    E A SISH ?


    Mid 1900s.. such as 1950.

    I believe the seller meant $65.00 starting bid.

    If being old makes something valuable I'd be worth a million bucks. I was born right around that time. I suddenly have a greater feeling of self worth.

    So, we are shipping a $6500.00 mandolin family instrument, Parcel Select with no insurance? Makes me happy I closed my EBay account.
