Hasn't Orvis been trying to sell that for like 2 years now?

------ Follow up post added October 19th, 2010 12:42 PM ------

Follow up: I dont know if they were trying to selling back in '04 when talked about here:
http://www.defendersource.com/forum/...8&postcount=15

Then again a year ago when it was for sale/sold for $65K the first time:

Then again in Dec '09:

$131,000.00!!!!!!!!!

Anyone want to buy an Orvis sticker for $50k? No offense to Lenny because its a beautiful restoration but it just goes to show you the power of a good marketing campaign and slapping a label on something.

Banana Republic could do a "get back to our roots" campaign and sell 5 of those..

Edit: and they would probably get a cease and desist letter from LRNA
