Some years ago I read of someone selling a bunch of horn hook couplers
on eBay. I had been saving the ones I removed from models for years,
so I thought I'd try offering them. I counted out a hundred, then put
the remaining ones in similarly size piles. I figured I had around
five hundred, so this was the number I offered. I placed them on my
flatbed scanner and took an image of the pile for the auction.
I think I got around $11.00 for the lot. Looks like there was a market
for them at least at one time!
