I think maybe it's a typo, she has the decimal once space too far to the right.

I don't think it's a typo. She has three zeros.

Hi, Guys!
Life is good in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico! I don't miss my Star collection one bit! I only wish I had more to sell! Right now, Juanita, my young "maid" and I are sitting in a small café overlooking Bandaras Bay sipping on some cold Pacificos. Later, we'll decide where we want to dine tonight. After that, we may stroll the beach and when the sun begins to drop, we'll casually make our way to our small casa. Who knows what the night has in store? Miss you guys, but to be honest, not that much!
Brian

Let's not hijack the thread, OK? Thank you.

I also sent a nice message to the seller, in regards to pricing, and have yet to hear back. I have a feeling I'll never hear back!

You're probably right. She never responded to me either. If enough people tell her that her price is out of line, maybe she'll wake up and do something about it.

Then again, maybe she won't and is just a stubborn, stupid idiot who is fishing for a sucker.

Maybe she is working on the assumption that you won't get it if you do not ask?

Easier to accept less than asking then to ask more after the sale!

Hello green glass drum, I think the big"A" badge used by Star was simply a big "A" and nothing more. Some say it is short for Apollo but Star already had a fully spelled "Apollo" badge during the same timeframe so I do not agree with that theory on it.
