Private collection for sale, via reddit

This is not my collection, but a post I saw on reddit.  The seller's contact info is in the link on the reddit post.

Strange that the seller seems determined to sell the collection whole as opposed to parting it out. We've seen this phenomenon a few times before here, and it's definitely a far more difficult approach. Although a couple of the machines interest me, I would never buy the collection since I already own examples of most of the other models, and I have no interest in buying and selling a dozen machines that I don't want just to get a couple of machines that might be interesting to obtain.

Yeah, I agree. I'd think you'd get more splitting it up anyway.  Interest in this would probably be from someone like Antikeychop, or some other person who flips machines.

Gosh that's a beautiful collection. Selling for purely financial reasons; it would make SO much more sense to see them singly.

Re: Private collection for sale, via reddit

A splendid set of machines; a couple there that I would like! 
A collection such as this could likely only go to a well-off new collector, since, as Uwe points out, any established collector would already have many of these and may not want the bother of selling on the doubles.  I chime in with the obvious 'List them separately on eBay or another major site'.  The only sure way to turn ready cash, I should think.
Can anyone leave the message for her - or guide her to this page?
 


Sincerely,
