1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    I don't think they are illegal, but they were rare in the first place. The last one I saw on eBay had none of the adornments you mention yet sold for >$500, so I think you'd be looking at well over $1000 for one with ivory, silver or gold on it.

    Thanks for the kind words all.

    Mark Cross was one of the most prolific purveyors of leather goods for most of the 1900s, most notably the case Grace Kelly used in that Hitchcock's "Rear Window". Like many great names, they faced a lot of trouble and shortly after had their name nearly ruined by having some very poor quality items marketed under the Cross name on QVC. Only recently (last couple years) has the name been used on quality goods again. I believe one of their core items available right now is a replica of the Grace Kelly case. MC is probably one of the best deals on eBay because the good old stuff often goes overlooked--personally got a great condition, all-leather holdall for less than $100.

    If anyone got a pair of those Lindricks for $400, please please please PM if they don't work out for you (even if they do, pass them on to me :)).

    Anyway, here is an AMAZING Drew & Sons croc vanity with sterling accessories - $9.99 auction no reserve

    The coat was high end quality and costed at least $1K during that era. Same type of coat today would be closer to $2K

    Ebay Policy overview

    Most weapons can't be listed on eBay because of strict federal and state government regulations and international laws banning the sale of these items. Please review the list of items below to find out what you can and can't sell on eBay.

    For certain types of weapons that can be listed, sellers have to follow our guidelines, as well as meet the following requirements:
    The item is listed only on the eBay US site.
    The seller is located in the US
    The item is also in the US
    The seller offers only domestic shipping for the item, since international shipping would make the item available in countries where it might be prohibited.
    The item complies with California law on the sale of weapons.

    Not allowed
    Automatic knives
    Balisong knives
    Butterfly knives
    Dual-action knives
    Gravity knives
    Hidden or disguised knives such as air gauge knives, belt buckle knives, lipstick case knives, or writing pen knives
    Out-the-front (OTF) knives
    Paratrooper knives
    Push knives—they're also called push daggers, punch daggers, punch knives, push dirks, and T-handled knives
    Replica or imitation switchblades
    Shuriken
    Switchblade knives (knives with a blade that open automatically—for example, by pressing a button or through inertia or gravity)
    Sword canes
    Throwing stars, ninja stars, throwing cards, Batman symbols, or Cyclone knives

    So, according to this, sword canes are not allowed on Ebay.
