Long story short: I've been forced into a heart-wrenching and stressful situation that has left me with the prospect of no home by the end of December. That being said, I've got two boxes for all of my possessions, so I need to eliminate all of my puzzles that aren't of the utmost sentimentality to me. I'm willing to cut deals to initiate the impromptu purchase of these puzzles. Larger orders take priority. Here's the list of what I've got. Please make offers on any and all items you may be interested in. Only listed what I think has decent value. Let me know if you are looking for anything cheap and specific.

BELOW IN RED HAS BEEN CLAIMED. WILL BE TAKEN DOWN UPON COMPLETED PAYMENT

Black Mosaic Cube
White C4U 3x3x5
Black C4U 3x3x7
Black Vulcano (Mefferts)

Dino Didecahedron (MF8)
Black 4x4x5 (Ayi)
Black Dayan Gem II
Blue Dayan Gem III (Concept 11, Unstickered)
Crazy 4x4x4 II


This last one has a huge amount of sentimental value. It's a classic style penny puzzle. Old trick, but new look. It is made of two layers of acrylic with etching and paint. They are then screwed together. They are very high quality. This was a project of mine with large amounts of help from Dave Litwin. They are a numbered series, with only 8 plus my prototype existing. The one I am selling is black with red lettering and design. I will not let this go cheap, because it cost a lot to make such a small run. But if the offer is right and there is a good home for it, I'll accept. Pictures linked below (Best quality photos I can produce, feel free to ask ANY questions) Additionally, I have one with a black background that has blue inking instead of red. That one is available in place of this one, if you prefer. Only letting one go:

Back View: http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn31 ... uzzle2.jpg

Side View: http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn31 ... uzzle3.jpg

EDIT: The extra penny puzzle has also been claimed at a price I am satisfied with.
When I get a chance to go through my last shelf and purge the extras, I'll probably post a handful more of puzzles, but for now I think I am nearly done. Thank you all.

I enjoyed making these, and used the same techniques that I use for my Elementals: Etching and inking, and etched countersunk screws to hold the clear top.
I'd recommend the black/red but both are nice.

Just for fun, here is a video of one being etched. Help funmonkey54 out if you have an interest in this sort of non-Twisty puzzle.

Thank you, Dave, for the input. That's a very cool video. I hope you don't mind me dropping your name on the puzzle. I just know people can trust your quality of work, which, based on the offers I am receiving, adds a very solid amount of interest. It's a very well made puzzle, so I'm glad people recognize that.


As for the others that have given me offers on single puzzles, I am giving priority to the individual that has made an offer on the whole lot. I am responding as quickly as I can.

To address a few other concerns:

No, I am not getting out of puzzling. I couldn't if I tried. I'm keeping puzzles that were gifts, puzzles with huge sentimental value, and the ones that are my absolute favorites. I'm only parting with what I can bring myself to part with as the situation calls for it. I'm glad that this community cares so much about its members and about their continued dedication to the interest. Thank you.

I'm one of the lucky few who got one of these puzzles. Charlie (and Dave) did a fantastic job on them. Well worth the few (more) pennies that it will sell for.

Offer up now, because mine is too valuable to part with. :D
