    I felt bummed after not bidding a penny for a set of omega branded screwdrivers. It was only a penny and all I had to do was submit a bid. All I thought about that day.

    I totally forgot about it until I read this post and now it feels silly to think about what could have been, and I know I have one penny in my pocket for the next thing that catches my eye.

    Best of luck in finding that next special piece but don't worry about the things that got away.

    Weren't those going for almost 7k just a few months ago? I know earlier -69s w/DON have strengthened a ton since then, but have straight-writings actually weakened?

    It is the rare Apollo XI version, so a bit of a premium I'd guess.

    Ugh, I know this feeling all too well, many times over. :( Have a cold beer (or 3) today to drown your sorrows, and then start to cheer up knowing that this won't be the last opportunity, and that another one will present itself down the road. Personally, I still think we're due for a correction in pricing for certain Speedy models. As the global economy continues to sputter and choke, it should have the inevitable result of depressing demand for luxury items, and with a lower demand, come lower prices (usually). Let's all hope at least. I like you would love to have a straight writing in my box.:thumbsup:

    Hopefully it was you or another OF member that was able to snag it.

    I sold it ;). It ended up with a great client of ours, not sure if he's on this forum.
