Wow that’s just nuts.
In 2006, I bought a mint sabre for the Pop-Up R2 that my best mate from school gave to me from his childhood.
The sabre cost me £20/ $14. The guy sent it to me in small envelope, which because I was busy finishing my thesis, I just left on top a bookcase with loads of other mail.
Sadly a few days later I forgot about the sabre in the envelope and during a weekend clean-up, it went out with the recycling with all the other opened mail and papers. It weeks before I remembered and so sadly way too late to dumpster dive.
I’ve always been meaning to get another replacement and I haven't really kept track of the price.
Oh deah, I’m gonna be financially pistol wipped when I do
