I think you may be correct Paul F in that the seller may not have realised their significance, 'just another old set of floats' - I too had to let them climb out of my reach though I am certain the lucky buyer is delighted.

Given the much discussed serious chemical treatment that my basic reading suggests the quills underwent to be transformed into such wonderful floats, I wonder if the buyer is praying to the gods of angling that they aren't like 16th and 17th century Venetian glass ……… turning to dust over time.

Given inflation they're cheaper than the original price!

I thought this was a new post, thank God is isn't as I trawl the bay for these things.
I have plenty of those threaded float caps but no floats!.
