My apologies for not posting this earlier. #1 comes as no surprise to folks who've read the previous posts. Whenever this Mary Poppins globe appears on ebay, I try to do an auction watch and let people know what it sold for.
Current ebay range: $314.78 to $1200. The $1200 price was extreme and I think the closest sale to that amount was around $600-700. There is one curently on ebay that still has several days to go. It is currently at $302.55.
