There are some nice machines here but I doubt any one collector would want them all. And the seller is really shooting herself in the foot by not offering to ship them. I wrote to her:


You would have far greater success with this collection if you sold the machines separately and were willing to ship them. Shipping is not a big deal -- take the item to a UPS store with a mailing label and drop it off... done.

I would take very single vacuum there, but I agree why wouldn't you ship them.

Yes, I agree also, nothing he is selling there is super-rare, although I wouldn't mind having the lime green Dial-A-Matic U5017 :-)

If I had the money and they were shipping them I would most definitely go for the COnnie and the Dial A Matics. Those are some mighty nice machines!

I was super exited when I first saw this on eBay. I would love that model 29 "Convertible". My heart sank when I saw no shipping. My guess is someone in the area will get this for a song and make quite a profit listing them separately.

After seeing that the seller is located in Medina, Ohio I may consider bidding on these, I want the 61, and the swingette.
Luckily this is only 2 1/2 hour drive for me so it would be easily obtainable

I agree....

Nothing there is super duper rare. The U5017 Dial-A-Matic is really probably the rarest of all of those. But at the same time 543's, 29's, and 61's don't grow on trees. Those are definitely getting harder to find with each passing day. The bag on that 543 intrigues me. Looks like a model 150-era replacement bag, if not an actual model 150 bag... which would be worth buying the whole lot in and of itself.

Good luck, Sam, if you go for and get these! ((Grab the bag off of that model 543 for me!!)) :-)

listing was pulled ???

The listing has been canceled. Maybe the seller is going to re-list them individually, and offer shipping! I'd bookmark her listings and keep an eye on them if there are machines here you want.
