The Penthouse (NOS) currently on Ebay
« on: February 16, 2019, 06:57:20 AM »


One finally surfaces and it's a NOS.  This will be a Battle of the Titans auction, not for the faint of heart (or wallet).

Think this one might break all previous records?

I seen it at $600 this morning, but that was before '"the giant" started bidding.  Im guessing it will set a record!

It's only the first day it's currently at $2150 (21 bids). 

I hope it stays in the WKC so we can get more detailed photos of it and the owners manual.

Nice rarity! It would be nice if the owner would share a photo of the bowl flipped.

$2,150 !!!!  I'm'a gonna go out on a limb and say that the (if it exists) Weber Corporate Museum and Archive bought it. That's a whole lotta prime rib right there!!

I knew someone was going to try and lure the seller with the right amount of money and highly doubt it was Weber. It comes down to the seller knowing that Ebay is going to take a large cut of the profits, the more it sells for the more they will take. It's enticing when a person makes a cash offer to end the auction rather than gambling it will hit some obscure amount and not reaching those expectations in the end. I'm sure the seller got around $4K and that's probably around where it would have ended up anyways, but they get to keep the full amount now. As much as we would have liked to see where it would end up the people who wanted it the most made the right moves. Well played by the seller IMHO, not so sure for the buyer, only time will tell.
