    Winning bid: US $7.50

    The catchy description sold me on this one. Any of you guys have an Old Timer with a widdling blade, or a nail prong filer? Figured this knife was in pretty decent shape, and was surprised at the few bids. It completes my Prince Albert threesome, and they don't come around all that often. Didn't figure even a beater at that price. The little color change on the delrin is nice.

    This Ulster Old Timer Camper showed up today. It is pretty much unused with just a little tarnish. The handles are great, tight bail, clean liners. A slight wobble on the can opener, but I don't think this knife will live to open a can of Pork and Beans at a campout.

    Took me a long time to finally complete the set. I tried to pose the knives just like the can illustration, but quickly realized the Prince Albert can artist was not a knife person, unless they had three Ulsters with no snap.

    Saw that one, I just had other bids going on at the time. Now if the seller took photos like the ones you did...I just might have bid against you. Very nice knife.

    Good job on the completion, I have a rough looking Camper that looks OK if I don't open the main blade, still looking for a decent specimen to complete my set.

    No Roland, I checked with a loup for any widdle marks, and it passed, but I seem to be drawing a blank on that elusive nail prong filer.:confused: Appreciate you ignoring the knife Todd. :p Thanks for the compliment on the photos, it's the camera, and take pictures outdoors with no flash. Got the idea from Rusty.

    $7.50!!!! :eek:
    Now you messed up my potential sale!!
    You lowering the equilibrium price/past auctions price :grumpy:;)
    I tried selling mine for 30 bucks WITH Jeffrey Hoffmeister engraving
    I am gonna keep it anyways
    I guess I am like you other guys and I will have to spend years on EBAY finishing my collection
    I got the tin and the camper model
    Isn't the camper model the hard one to find??

    That just proves that if you look hard enough and are patient you can still find deals on EBAY...:thumbup:

    They are all hard to find in good condition, with 58OT's being somewhat common, but rarely a deal, and I'd say the camper model is the least often listed. Yours is by far the most rare Trent, as it is the only Jeffrey Hoffmeister special edition I've ever seen. There is a guy named Tractors4Jesus that snatches up most of the PA Ulsters.
