How to get $100's for one Fiestaware dish !

This area is for discussions involving any fusion related radiation metrology issues. Neutrons are the key signature of fusion, but other radiations are of interest to the amateur fusioneer as well.

How to get $100's for one Fiestaware dish !

Isn't it kind of sad to see a nice old Fiestaware specimen broken up on purpose, for sale at $4.36 per shard? I hope the first break was accidental. Ebay http://www.ebay.com/itm/320958612467

This is real capitalism at work and virtual wealth in the making. More power to this entrepeneur. Probably 2 shards sold and all the rest is gravy.

I just couldn't bring myself to do this to one of my a collector fiestaware plates, though. In some places, the prices for original red-orange fiestaware has sky-rocketed to amazing levels. I saw a saucer with no cup going for $35.00 last weekend.

Fiestaware makes a great, hot, test source as it contains no radium and is a "sealed source" under the glaze. It is almost a pure beta source for GM purposes.
