Interesting. I humbly retract the statement about the MSRP going up. I guess I just got a couple of killer deals in early 2018. I feel like mid-2018 (especially when a lot more Brazilians were hitting the market), was when the surge in demand started exploding and I perceived the prices getting a bit higher. I’m glad I know the real story now. I still don’t remember Murphys costing THIS much more though. I bought a NEW Wildwood Murphy painted & aged Brazilian R0, one of only 6 made, for not too much more than $10.5K. If some of these Murphy Lab releases are being listed for $15K, imagine what they’d be charging for a Brazilian these days. I wouldn’t be surprised if they tried to get $20K for one now.
They might try it. But will people tolerate the instant $6-8K loss. That puts you into a 50's ES with original PAF territory, with no value loss after you buy it. Or New R9 & a real 50's LP Jr. on the same day type of money.
