Nice set, no doubt rare, but I still think it's at least $1400 overpriced in today's market.

I like the style better than most of the other projectors i've seen.

I saw that one too. It's a rare one, but these early projection sets appeal to few collectors. More power to the seller in getting that much for it, but in actuality it's probably worth $300-$400 tops.

"no respect"... as stated by me before, the early projection sets are primitive, glorious..and yet not valuable. I would love to have this...for a couple hundred.

Being a long time TV collector/historian I love them all, but always stay realistic when it comes to values. The projection sets, like with most TV consoles, don't get much respect simple because of their weight and size. Many collectors who like working sets, like myself, don't want to deal with doing the extensive restoration to get them working correctly too. Personally, I prefer looking at bright CRT face anyway more than a projected image.

Wish this had turned up 10 years ago. Too late for me to chase.
