This is not a early time period event.

It was a cattle drive done this year and was celebrating Kansas 150th anniversary and the cattle drives from Texas to Ellsworth KS. It started at Caldwell Ks and went to Ellsworth all in 5days. There was a man that went in good period attire and all his gear was period. He had a canteen that he was going to carry and it got broke 2 days before the drive was to start so I had a canteen that I covered with leather and was a good looking canteen not totally period correct but as close as you can get and be safe with it. I was to get it back and I was going to donate it up for auction and donate the funds to the KMA. But he wants to buy it now. So do I still auction it or just price it to him. Not sure what it is worth. What would some of you give for a leather covered canteen?

This is the canteen and the cowboy he is 62 years old doing a job of a 20 years old in the old days. He actually got bucked off 2 times.

I would say after an event like that, he earned the right to ask to purchase it. You could make an understanding that he would donate to your organization if he was ever to part with it.

I understand whole heartedly but I told him when I gave it to him I wanted it back, and did not say what I was going to do with it when I let him take it.

I am trying to figure out how much to ask for it? any Ideas Colonel?

Not clue to the value. That is something you may have to research to see if you can find others like it to compare to.
On the other hand, it might just be priceless.

It's yours. You told him you wanted it back. You get it back. Period. No ifs ans or buts. If, after you get it back, you decide you want to sell it to him you can. It is yours. You can do whatever the hell you want with it. He has no claim.

Either you are way too nice or I 'm just a mean New Yorker, but just b/c you lend someone something they don't get to keep it! I would have to gree with Conde on this one.

In contrast to those mean New Yorkers, you could just give it to him. We are not talking about a life-changing amount of value here, and by doing so you would increase the amount of joy in the world. We all ought to give things away every once in while to remind ourselves that we own articles, they do not own us, and that we are more than the objects we own.

Of course, you could point out that this is easy for me to saw since it is not my canteen.

I see you were going to auction it and donate the funds. So why not just sell it to the guy and donate the funds. The end result is the same. Donated funds.

I tend to agree with Jacques... It would sure be a swell gift

It would illustrate how much you thought of the effort that went into the drive....if not a gift, a swap?

I can always BUY stuff, you can't buy a friend.

Just a thought

I have to agree with Jacques. If you can financially afford it, why not? Add a little joy to the world. I tend to do that, and I think it's been a bad habit financially...but on the other hand I smile when I think of my adventures, and I like to see my face in the mirror. On the other hand if by giving it to him you deny yourself the resources to make another, then you should ask him to buy it or get it back. But if possible...give. Just my 1.5 cents.

I pretty much let him have it, and another person was going to buy it for him and I priced it to him and he bought has a cow at what I priced it for.

All is good with us.

Tanks all who put in their 2 cents worth on this thread.
