    read the ad

    I am listing this at a outrageous price. Now I know I wont get $50,000 for it, though that would be awesome. I am doing this because I don't know what to ask for it as it is almost a priceless piece. I will take offers over the next few months for it. I will let you know if I decide to accept your offer. You will most likely never have a chance to buy this plane again.

    Maybe you will find a JLC or VC watch inside that plane.

    I'm thinking a Hamilton.

    These were put out in "Limited Editions" for, I think 30 bucks originally by someone like the Franklin Mint or similar - a Bargain!

    I have found that some people just like to hear themselves typing.

    Friends don't let friends buy G-Schlocks.

    You think I'm condescending...?? Do you even know what that means... ??

    Any Air show that has the Hamilton planes will sell the models.

    The last Akkie sale I heard of was less than 1/10 this price, and Akkie is a lot less common and a lot older than this advertising piece. I sure haven't heard of a huge collector market for modern Hamilton ephemera.

    At first I thought it was a full size aircraft like the one outside trump tower. Then I realize he is just a fool.

    That's a nice Hammy plane. I think I'll throw an offer: $20.00.

    Aw, darn he declined my offer.
