Valuation question

Questions, Questions, Questions. You got 'em? We'll answer 'em!
I don't know if I'm allowed to post eBay links here, but what's the going rate for a piece like this?

It's a stencil collage on paper work of the Peace Elephant image. $25k? 35k? I want to put in an offer but $50k sounds off for this medium, even if the image is strong.

Of course there is "at the time" pricing and pricing today. Probably $35k-40k or so, just offering that up. This is a stencil collage painting after all and not an HPM.

Doesn't seem like eBay would be the best place to move a piece of that caliber.

I bet it is cheap advertising for a buyer to close a deal off eBay.

On a related note, throw down cash for a killer Shepard Fairey original painting or get a Banksy print for about the same price.

A canvas bigger than that is less than 50k in primary and piece on paper about the same size is less than 20k. Is 25k too little for the Peace Elephant?

Was just going through some older emails and this VERY similar to to one that was being shopped around the bay area around September for 36K .

just like real estate .. buyers are the ones who usually determine final prices.
It will be interesting to see how this story unfolds and would like to know how much (if it actually did sell) for in September and how much its sells for now.

Still one Of my favorites (the other being WBN), I wish i could afford to spend that kind of money on a piece .
Maybe 1 day.
