It’s really a matter of need, and desire. I personally would pay $5, MAYBE $10max for that particular spool. You can clearly see there is corrosion and damage to this spool. OVAL and TWIST in thin sizes, especially the stuff with the red stamp that says “Henri V“ are much better quality. If you need some like that for a project I have some of the good quality flat and overall tinsel in that size. I even have some old silver tinsel that is tarnished which is good for making old patterns.

Let me know....

What one guy would pay may be a whole lot less that others.....I have seen spools like that go for over $100 on eBay.
If re-spooled on smaller spindles, typically they sell in the $8.00-$10.00 range at the shows, since most guys won’t pony up for a huge spool they will never put a dent in.
Good tinsel is in demand. CJ
