I bought that 1955 Speedster in 1972 for $2200--spent 15 years restoring it to Absolutely Original condition, and sold it to a private museum in Stuttgart, Germany in 1987 for $42000. Now, It's worth around $150K. Oh well...0March 15, 2019 9:57PM
KindaNewishyou did well. $42k in 1987 dollars is about $4 hundred million in todays money.
I hope you retained visitation rights. Go to suttgart and insist on taking it for a ride around the ring.
KindaNewishIf you are divesting from coins, please offer me one of yours. I am kind of newish to the collecting realm and would like to carry on a part of a careful collection. I am not going to offer you $42k for anything, but please pick out something you like from your collection and offer it to me.
