Carmine C4 U-tips after a little maintenance........

Short story/background. I grabbed these around the time Horween was releasing a ton of C4. As an admitted Alden enthusiast, I grabbed a couple from them as well and decided to move these. They've been listed for quite a while and every once in a while, I'd get what I considered a lowball offer but one potential buyer advised that these were only selling for around $500. In my world, that's a surprisingly low price for C4 shell with less than a few hours of use but given my inexperience with Carmina, who was I to dispute his position. But that seems like a pretty drastic drop in value.

But all's well that ends well. Sold all my Alden C4 so these are all that's left. Unboxed them, threw a little Pure Polish on them, and they're ready for wear.
