    I just bought a lettered copy for $150
    What letter? A lot of these were damaged during shipping and replacements were issued. If the original buyer didn't destroy the duplicate then this could be one of those cases.
    I have letter N.

    This reissue is something I wasn't aware of. Is there an indicator of any kind that would signal a reissue? It could be a nightmare seeing two letter B's on eBay.

    Marco - any insight into this?

    **to add, I originally purchased a #'d from a seller years ago off eBay and it arrived damaged and I shipped it back to him. I paid issue price and that was April, 2016 according to my emails.

    Good to know! I've never seen a lettered for sale.

    That seems reasonable but yeah, there just isn't much out there re: previous sales. I see so much of Hill's stuff around that it's a little surprising that there aren't more of these out there, even with the issues with damage.


    FWIW mine ended up with a member here for list price + shipping, which I'm fine with as it's just too big for me to find the wall space for and I'm happy with a small stack of cash and one less poster tube in storage . It was a very ambitious packing job that involved a roll-within-a-roll and a fair amount of Amazing Tape but I'm pretty confident it will be fine once it's eventually opened up.
    And a huge thanks for that, Tim! I will eventually get around to opening it. Framing it; well, not promises when that will happen

    I can only confirm what Kingfan24 said, there are duplicate numbers and letters on the secondary market. I reckon that if the copy you bought has no flaws itís pretty safe to assume thereís no duplicate copy as it wouldnít make sense if someone sold their undamaged copy only to keep the damaged one...but then again, thereís some crazy people out there

    Was closing a deal with someone for what was about to be the holy grail in my collection, a Suntup lettered copy of Horns. Unfortunately the guy seriously increased his initial asking price while we were corresponding so....

    does anyone here have a copy for sale?

    Sorry to hear that. How can anyone increase an initial asking price after negotiations have begun?

    Yeah, pretty bummed about this. He mentioned that his post with the initial asking price was posted when he was out of a job and needed money a couple of months ago. He never sold it and when I contacted him, I asked him if it was still available and he confirmed it was so I told him Iíd wanted to buy it. He then sent me some pictures etc. And when I asked for a total including shipping he came with this new price

    The ad was on the Fans of Suntup.... some 4 months old. The guy wasn't even actively selling it anymore. Marco found the old ad... contacted him to buy it. He informed the seller of his location and the seller stated he would sell it.. but he wanted $3500 shipped. The price did not change during the transaction but rather over the 4 month span since he listed it... AS ALL things Suntup have increased is value. I think this is a case where the seller did not do a THING wrong at all and Marco is just frustrated but taking it out on public forums I think may be a bit in bad form since there was not a thing wrong with the sellers asking price. The old ad he didn't even realize was still up on the group. If this happened over the course of a few days.. a few weeks even.. sure BUT he seen a price on an ad! The seller didn't give it to him.
