So What Is A “Name” Worth?

June 9, 2010

One of the words that sellers love to use in their WWII listings is "named".  Whenever possible they slip this one in to indicate they can place the provenance of an item from the period.  So with this blog post I ask the question, what is a name worth?  I checked in to the sales on eBay from the last month to see just how much those five letters buy you on an eBay auction. Click on these listings and see if that adjective helped boost the bottom line.
