You know, sometimes a high price can seem like a bargain if that makes any sense,
but are these needles any good?

They are a lot of needles but the real value to collectors lies in the rather nice sealed tins which must be worth at least £10 each with needles in or not - the Late Ruth Lambert always sold tins empty and sold the needles separately

It's really only fibre needles I'm interested in, because I can get new needles any time, and speaking of which I just spent a bit more money than I should have on this

I don't think you paid too much really - good quality Fibre needles are well worth having, i've been using fibre needles to excellent effect recently with what appear to be Old shop stock 1930's popular records and also a 1908 Piano record

here's one i made earlier using Triangular Bamboo needles
