Title: Near mint yellow on eBay
Post by: Bbqspott on December 06, 2017, 06:32:49 PM
I noticed a near mint yellow on eBay about 30 minutes ago with no bids on it. Now it's already up over $300. Mannnn is it nice!

Handle is broken, what a piece of crap...

Should be a fun one to watch.

Wow. Wonder how that kettle has remained in that condition. Can't be many in better shape from that era.

Thats a nice looking kettle!
 Looking at the bowl pics I see yellow... They were yellow inside under the black? I don't have any experience with how they made/make these and I've only been looking that closely since the new limited edition posts.

Nice, but not over $1000 nice. Maybe to a real collector with some spare dough. For that kind of money I will be looking for small tab kettle with metal/rubber wheels.

I got my nice 22" A code yellow for $40 on a Everything but the House online auction. Not as nice as this but nicer than most I have seen here.

So, I absolutely LOVE this kettle...and if I ever found one on CL, OfferUp, Letgo etc., I would buy it in a heartbeat...however, I will say, I'm so happy that my yellows have some chips/flaws because they are my absolute favorite kettles to cook on, and I don't worry too much their overall condition (I still use baskets on all cooks, don't freak out).  I'm still captivated by the color change, and enjoy showing my wife/friends each time I use it.  If I bought this, it would be a looker, not a cooker, and man, I would struggle daily with the temptation to break this one in, versus leaving it pristine.  Best of luck to all the bidders!

Agreed, I would really struggle with a kettle that has never been cooked on.

Wow, that was a boring finish for sure.   Kind of wishing I had put in a bid at the end.  I'm shocked that didn't go for more.  I thought that last one would go for less due to the Holidays and I was wrong, but maybe that was the cause of this one not going so high.
