Very Nice Acrolite but regardless of age $150-180 max. try lowering your price and it might sell.

Best of luck

In just the past 6 months I've seen similar KB's fetch $300ish on Ebay. And this one looks 100% original. It's a new "world" now but I wouldn't expect they've become that cheap for a mint KB.

Matter of fact, here's a plain old Black Galaxy that went for $198 shipped on Ebay tonight. Strong bidding. Very nice shape. While I wouldn't pay that, two others were willing to.

Thank You for the replies. This is a vintage keystone badge in great shape, I believe the price is in order because of that, and lower than most selling in this condition. Thanks Niles

Rude to dog someone's price if he doesn't ask for advice. If you must comment on it, it would be more polite to do so in a private message.

The seller didn’t ask for an advice on price but since there was a discussion I would say the price is fair, not a deal and not too high. If I wanted an Acrolite I would probably take it at this price. He is not asking $350 as some others do for an Acrolite lol.

I paid about this much for a mint 60's keystone Acro and have no regrets. Ive owned a couple cheap ones in the past like everyone, then none for 10 or so years. I decided I wanted to buy one and only one for the permanent collection, and jumped on an opportunity from a known seller with an immaculate drum. With shipping what it is and my time limited, it was a no brainer, rather than screwing around on the buy/re-sell train.

Good luck with sale and nice drum!
