    https://reverb.com/item/7509141-webe...serial-4199107

    Just posting cause the ad made me laugh....no affiliation, good, bad, or otherwise.
    Might offer him a cow and chicken for it..

    Quote from the ad:
    " I traded an autographed photograph of Yasser Arafat and six hedgehogs for this mandolin. "

    I'd love to see the photo of Yasser Arafat with 6 hedgehogs. Wonder if they signed it too?

    I think the seller's mentioning two separate barter items: the photo and the "herd" (?) of hedgehogs -- not a photo of YA with the critters.

    I may be wrong. I'm often wrong, though never in doubt, as they tend to say about Harvard types...

    I believe it's an Array of hedgehogs. However, I don't know what a group of Yassers is called.

    Strangely, the autograph was "Christopher Walken."

    Did the hedgehogs autograph the photo, too? That would drive up its value considerably.

    This was a photograph of Arafat posing with six hedgehogs, autographed by James Monroe.
