So what's with the P in the Coonyard diamond? Looks like some other hieroglyph to the left.
I hope the dood uses the proceeds to buy a book on proper lighting.

Actually, they claim (and I believe this is correct) the "Diamond P" is Salathé's mark which Yvon stole as his own. The CW on the pin is Chuck Wilts.

This guy is a cheap ass seller.

$5000 bucks for a dumpster piece of metal and then charges the buyer $12.00 shipping on top of it.

Way homo greedy ass people ......

ONLY 2 HOURS AND 38 MINUTES LEFT! HURRY! HURRY! HURRY!

Or maybe the owner isn't REALLY interested in selling...

He's been "trying" to sell that on ebay for at least a year:

Previously the starting price was $2500; that didn't work so raising the price is his new strategy? :-)

I agree Boo. How ELSE could you establish appraise the value of a Salathe pin than to run it through an auction at too high a value? It is clear though Salathe's pins are worth a great deal.

A Salathe pin that was owned by Chuck Wilts. That's some nice provenance. Hang on to that puppy.

A better strategy might be to accept offers - to root out the serious potential buyers.

Reminds me of a conversation I had years ago with an honest and ethical importer of authentic Chinese antiques. After three or four deals, one of his suppliers invited him to tour the authentic antique factory.
