So I've got a vintage price tag that fell off a MOC. I'm not sure if anyone would want it, but would you sell it? Am I giving a scammer a potential loaded gun to cover up damage?

Here's the label:

Thoughts?

IF you were to sell it- what's it worth?? a couple of dollars max. To me not worth selling.

I think Sears used crappy glue Very Happy because I also have about 5-6 similar Sears tags that fell off. I just sit them in a pile in my display cabinet. They don't take up much space and they are neat to look at.

I wasn't really concerned about the money (I could've just as easily said "give away") as much as the danger of price tags getting out into the public.

I would'nt want to risk it being re-used.
Do people collect price tags? If they do, perhaps you could use a strong adhessive to mount it onto some card so that it can't easily be removed & reapplied to a cardback.

I agree to not sell them due to the fact of people covering up card damage. I would rather look at damage than a price tag anyways.

Not into MOCs...but who would actually buy a price Tag besides anybody covering up damages on card???

I mean its a price tag...maybe sth interesting still fixed on a card, but off the card nothing SW realted....worth zero IMO.

Am I wrong??

I don't get it. As it is, isn't it just a price tag? What makes it Star Wars related, other than you knowing it fell off of a MOC. It could just as easily be a price tag for socks. Who would want that?
