Good lord I've had 12 of these sitting in a box for years and years... and never knew they were so rare in mint... the yellow 1x4x5 half arch.  There were only 2 half arches available in the last 6 months in new condition in BL... and one of them just sold  (what good is 1/2 arch?).

Anyway, I just put 12 new half arches on Ebay (6 full arches).... and decided not to get greedy....

And Ole, they will go out with your October delivery request as you stated....

Of the 12 arches, 2 were purchased in one of the original sets, and the other 10 were purchased in 2002 when the re-make of one of the earlier sets came out.  I was going to use all 12 in a MOC... but I never got around to building it... so my philosophy (in the last 3 years) is why hoard parts just for the sake of hoarding... let others enjoy them in their own creations!  Posted Image
