Thread: AUCTION: 24k gold SPY005 "goldfinger"

  1. #1

    Default AUCTION: 24k gold SPY005 "goldfinger"

    This gold plated SPY005 is now up for auction right here on CPF. The proceeds are all going to CPF (see note below). If you want to place a bid please post to this thread the amount of US$ that you want to bid. The opening bid starts at $1.00 (one dollar). Bidding stops at 9:00 PM Eastern time Friday.



    This is a fully functioning 005 with STFu and a Seoul. It's body came from the first production run of 005's. The gold plating that was done by modamag is 24k. That is very pretty but it scratches very easily, even if handled.

    This auction will end on Friday (10-26-2007) evening at 9:00PM eastern time. The time of the post is the deciding factor. If you post after 9:00 PM on Friday, your bid will not be valid. The CPF clock is what matters for this auction. If the two top bidders bid the same amount, the first to post wins. Any other disputes will be decided by yours truly. Payment can be sent as a check or you can use PayPal.

    As you know, I wanted Sasha to have this gold SPY however, I am respecting the results of the CPF vote and I know this light is not the most practical. If this auction goes high enough, I may elect to swap out some of the proceeds from this auction for one of the S&D SPYs I have saved so Sasha can have one. The S&D light's value is set at $325. If I choose to do this it will be swapped out at even money. If Sasha decides she wants to sell the S&D that is her prerogative. I will not mind. To say this another way; Sasha will end up with all the money from this auction or she will end up with that amount minus $325 plus one S&D 005.

    Start your bidding!



    Cheers
    Dave

    This 005's body and bat cap is actually made from 7075-T6 aluminum. That is how it came to be gold too. It originally went in for anodizing with the other bodies that were all 6061-T6. Oops, that does not work to well, came back not very smooth. So I put it aside for another day. Then when modamag offered to turn stuff into gold I said, "what better, a 7075 gold spy!" Only one on the planet!

    See this thread for results of the vote.

    I hesitate (though obviously didn't manage to avoid) posting a non-bid. But simply had to mention that if there were every a reason to use the word "bling" this is it.

    BLING.


    Awesome offering, Dave!

    Take your pick:

    St. Fu, the patron saint of Ninjas.

    Southern Tenant Farmers' Union (STFU): Large labor union, formed in Arkansas in 1934, which lobbied the federal government for better New Deal reforms. Dissolved in 1960.

    Acronym used for the phrase "Say, thanks for understanding." (would not recommend this usage, as it may be confused for something else....heh)

    A trademark submission move of WWE superstar and current WWE champion, John Cena

    St. Francis University

    Star Trek Federation University

    Acronym for SHUT THE F*** UP! (probably the most popular on the net)


    Oh yeah, and just so I can get in on the fun.....$565!

    I think many people like the Spy - even the golden one.
    But a Spy is not a 150,-- $ or 200,-- $ - or you see here, a 500,-- $ - light.
    And so it is good to know very early, that you can say "I´m out". That`s better than to hope and to hope and to hope, will it be mine 20 minutes for ending the bidding and then 2 minutes before ending .

    I think it`s fair to know this early.
    So hurry up and bid your price.

    When you are out, calmed down, lie on your couch and watch as the price goes highly

    Hope you understand.
    oh what a english

    So, Is the winner going to do a passaround of the light?

    Data, I was wondering if you have considered exotic inserts on the oval mark on the side, something like mother of pearl as seen on this knife
