How much???!!!

I've been keeping an eye on 3 Lego sets on eBay UK that finished today. The sets were: 6881, 897 and 6691. All of these sets were still mint in unopened boxes, and considering the newest one was 28 years old, that's pretty good going! I know unopened sets go for a premium but I was astounded at the prices they fetched. The saying goes that something is only worth what someone is prepared to pay for it. At these prices I'm never going to open a Lego set again!!!

First, the 3 sets that were on offer:

6681 - 'Lunar Rocket Launcher' from 1984

897 - 'Mobile Rocket launcher' from 1979

6691 - 'Red Cross Helicopter' from 1981

And now their final auction values:

                GBP          Euros          US$            AU$           Rubles         Yen
6881 - - - 57.00 - - -  70.05 - - -  91.23 - - -  88.34 - - - 2821.2 - - -  7,232.5
897- - - - 129.00 - - -158.54 - - - 206.48 - - -199.94- - - 6385.0 - - -16,366.8
6691 - - - 191.00 - - -234.72 - - - 305.71 - - -296.03 - - -9453.8- - - 24,233.0

In anybody's currency that's a LOT!

One of the annoying things for me is that I owned both 897 and 6691, and when I entered my 'Dark Ages' I got rid of them both! Aaaaarrrgghh!!!!
