This uke (http://www.ebay.com/itm/Very-Rare-Circa-19998-WHITE-LABEL-KAMAKA-8-String-Tenor-Ukulele-100-Hawaii-KOA-/270906963832?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3f13503778#ht_1435wt_1342) must be futuristic with the date 19998.

Funny typo. I'm surprised that by 19998, Kamaka went away from its MOP headstock logo and back to a decal.

What I find annoying is when people ask for a close-to-what-they-paid-for-it price for a 10+ year old ukulele that isn't old enough to be vintage by saying "This would cost $xxx to buy it new!" I have a 10 year old Honda Civic, for which I paid about $14,000 in 2001. I would never dream of asking $11,000 for it by saying "they cost $18,000 new." (The Blue Book value of my car, by the way, is about $6,000.) So when someone is selling a 10 year old Kamaka HF3, for example, for close to $1,000 (which is probably more than what they paid for it new) by saying "they now cost $1,300 new," I find that information to be unhelpful, except that it tells me something about the seller that makes me want to walk away.
