A friend of mine bought this late 1920s German JOL because she had not seen one with molded depressions around the eyes, nose and mouth before. I didn't notice these depressions when I looked at the listing, instead wrongly focusing on the fact that the the bottom had been so obviously replaced. Given the rarity of such molded features, a true bargain was had for $99!

The seller has offered this with an opening bid of $499.95. How do these people dream up these prices? This size German JOL, measuring 6" high, typically fetches in the $200-250 range.
