Turns out the guy that I bought the 1492 from threw in a Bolivar BBF from the Boli Centenary Humidor (1992 release) and a Cohiba Corona Especiale Reserva as bonus sticks. Gonna be quite a smoke session on my bday...
That is roughly what I paid. Rationally no, one cigar is not worth that much. I have Dunhills that are much, much cheaper. But it's for a special birthday and with the inclusion of a couple extra sticks I fell for it. The 1492s have a pretty unique history.
Yup, it was me. He said he'd attach a couple extras for the kind of money I spent. I don't actually know what fair market value for 1492's are--very likely I overpaid.

Got the McNairy brown suede captoes yesterday. Mike you were spot on in recommending the 11.5's. Fit like a charm. Little bit narrow in the toebox but I'm sure it will stretch a little bit. Look forward to the upcoming releases!
edit: also dig the grey donegal tweed and cherry red fabrics...make those up!
