    Yeah, for $200 it looks to be in a great shape for an excelsior. Getting it for less than that would be amazing.

    Did you get it? Or the OP? Or someone who saw a great price on a good looking antique?

    Darn it, I saw this posting this morning, ran a few errands and decided I was gonna get it, and now it looks like its gone, I emailed the people, thay live a ways off the beaten path, if the person who bought it does not pick it up, im all over it, maybe Ill even offer more to them, undercut the other guy if he hasnt picked it up yet.
