Thanks alot. There was also a more comprehensive topic from Ask Andy's as well.
I think that this is what you are looking for: http://www.styleforum.net/cgi-bin....ndmades
I was by Bennies today and they still had lots of small sizes left and also had two pairs of "shovel" soles in size 9.5 B. When production ceased in 1999, the Handmades were selling for $1,000.00. I guess they would go for $1,200-$1,300 today, if they were still being made. Louie recently showed me an old 1970 J&M merchant's catalogue with pictures of all of the Handmade models, plus many others (some terrific-Chris should post pictures). The number $100 was scribbled by each Handmade model. We were not sure if that was the wholesale or retail price, but it was probably retail, as a good pair of regular J&M Aristocrats went for about $25 retail then. They were about $250-300 in 1999, so the ratio of being able to buy 4 Aristocrats for one Handmade would be the same.
