Heavy York Roundheads

I have been toying with selling my "heavy" York Roundheads.  I feel like I could train up to 50 pounds.  Past that roundheads are a pain in the ass and fragile.  I would prefer to have a pair of loadable dumbbells for the rare heavy opportunities.

I listed the 80, 85, 90, 95, 100, 100 on Vintage Weightlifting Swap on April 12 and had some interest, but nothing that materialized.

I listed the 65, 70, 75, 80, 85, 90, 95, 100, 100 on Vintage Weightlifting Swap on June 19 and have had more promise by listing pricing $2/pound for singles and $800 for the hundreds.  The fact that I am driving to Missouri helped as well as one buyer is in Kansas City.

Considering I paid $1200 for 1050 pounds of weight, I would be doing well at anything in the neighborhood of $1.50/pound.

65 - 

I would definitely want to keep the 40-40-45-50-55-60 and would value them at $1.50/lb = $435.

The 65-95 are tougher.  I would hope that I could list or blob them for $1050 (560 pounds, around $2/lb)

The 100's are "worth" $800 to $1200.  I am ready to concede to the lower end as I have not come across many buyers.

UPDATE 6/24/2023 - Sold 100's and traded the 90 for a 75 with Aaron Lee

UPDATE: 9/15/2023 - Sold 680 pounds to Daniel Olson via Facebook Marketplace.  He is planning on blobbing them and sharing with a friend.
