Hello! Are these the infamous footed lugs you talk in so many threads?

I live in hope of a lucky Buy It Now on eBay!

But, no you’re right. If it’s properly advertised or in the hands of a dealer expect £800+ all day long. Someone on eBay recently had one and was asking this sum. I would imagine it sold.

If you scroll down on this page you’ll see Bosley’s sold another for £1,100 hammer price, so a bit north of £1,360 after fees.

I won’t give up on one but they are a badge due to scarcity (and price) that few can realistically own.
