Over the last few years, the very few times this Beistle tutu tally or its mate shown on page 218 have surfaced, the frenzy surrounding them results in very strong results. Again, if you take out the top two bidders, the price therefore resulting, $285, is probably the more sustainable one. When I wrote my second edition in 2007, I assigned a price for the pair at $225. Given the prices fetched for these over the last 4 or so years, I think a realistic price for the pair is around $575-650, showing just how strong the market has become for early Beistle paper.
