Yes, they are going up. With the world credit crunch people are investing in gold, silver and antiques rather than having paper money in the bank. Armours that I would buy ten years ago are reaching three times the value.
Mark, Take care. This seller is using a scam I have seen before. They pull off images of items on Yahoo Japan and offer them for sale on eBay at a greatly increased price. If you look at the items they are advertising on eBay there is an armour listed by them for a 'Buy it now' price of $4650. That same armour is on Yahoo with 15 hours to go and has reached a price of about $650. If someone buys it on eBay, they will win it on Yahoo and pocket the difference. I they don't win it they will return the eBay bidder's money and pretend there was some kind of problem. Ian B
