Nope. Not me. :D If it’s the real MCoy , with original DJ it would be almost like gold dust. Not sure if it warrants that price though.

I bought a true first without dj a few months ago, from Mandy who posted here looking for advice in the For Sale section. Suffice to say, if you knock a few digits off this one you're getting closer to what I paid. :wink:

Another seller tried to sell a very similar condition Hamilton COTC in a slightly better DJ in December 2018 for a slightly lower price than this seller is asking. I’m not sure if it sold or not. Back in 2013 one of these sold for GBP1250, it had a near perfect DJ. Its marvelous what extra value a good DJ makes to the value of a hard to find edition.

Definitely not me!! :D :D

I bought a Hamilton 1st edn of Condor sans DJ last year somewhere in New South Wales during our travels. Much more reasonable price. The DJ definitely makes a significant difference.

Sheesh. Someone has deep pockets - the listing has ended.

I don’t think it was sold, though.

Yes, it did sell - hence the thread title and my asking if anybody was going to own up to being the buyer! :o
