    Would guess at a hundred dollar bill...but I'm lost if it's a reference to the picture on it.

        Google says it's because C in Roman Numerals = 100.

        OP: You suck, you know it, and you are just rubbing it in Well done, very nice haul.

          My question is, what sort of award do we give to the other person in this deal- the seller?

          I cut it off twice and it's still too short!

            Chump award?

            For only asking a benjamin for it all?

              Nice haul Sid. I've been trying to find a nice deal on some good old adjustable parallels for a while because I don't want to buy import ones, you did good on that one. Those chucks are very nice too.

                What is the backstory with the seller and transaction?

                  Well YOU might pin that label on someone with out knowing the back story.

                  The items came from a friend of mine that is getting out of the trade. He's been in it for 40 years. We've worked together, and he's taught me much. He's a true craftsman, and a good soul.

                  Truth is, I could only GIVE him $100. He didn't want that. He has multiples of things over the years (obviously).
                  He is paying it forward. I, in turn, am paying it forward to my friend. He offered me money for the parallel sets. I will not take any either.
                  I know they are going to someone who will use them and take care of them and not turn around and sell them.

                  Just like my friend trusted me, I am trusting him.

                  Makes for a good hobby.

                  Now, you know the rest of the story.

                      Thank you.
                      *** I always wanted a welding stinger that looked like the north end of a south bound chicken. Often my welds look like somebody pointed the wrong end of a chicken at the joint and squeezed until something came out. Might as well look the part.
