Just arrived yesterday and it's sooooo cute! Came in the original chipboard yellow monster fur lined case. It's a player for sure. Used by three kids in the 80s and 90s in Hawaii for elementary school uke classes, so it's not a closet queen or mint but it has a great sound and plays quite well! For $300, I might have paid too much but I liked the guy's story :)

Saw one in an advertisement that had the original sales receipt from some drug store for $39.95

The cost of living calculator says that $39 in 1973 would be equivalent to approx. $216 today
