Don't you know, it depends on whose "string" you are asking about
But no, that is a very useful answer; thanks! I am curious as to whether the particular example you mentioned in the UK sold at that price or not...that certainly seems well over what I would expect to find one for. I would have thought that you could find a lower-end Hako for that sort of coin, but now I'm now thinking that the figures in my head may be some years out of date.
Does anyone know of the popularity of this model within Japan? I know that they have historically been pretty popular with the boso crowd, but does it have the same "status" that other Skyline models have? I had been led to believe that their lack of a GTR badge (or other performance goodies) and "polarizing" styling sort of made them outcasts, but prices hardly seem reflective of that.
