Either price is way too much. Maybe the second model was tarnished and the first wasn't?

That model is being sold from 250 up to 550 bucks on e bay once in a while. If it's tarnishless gets very high as AirCal pointed out. I am an owner of a tarnish free 727-200 and it's worth to have it. Such a beautiful iconic aircraft in one of the most lovely liveries a 727 can have. Bought it in 150$us back in 2012 from James. Greateful to have it...even if it has two forward cargo doors. Hope to see a re-release on that magnificent mold or a shorter version 100 series.

Yes it could be on the first model you had two bidders who really wanted the model hence they were "battling" it out with each other. With the second model, the bidder who lost on the first auction didn't have to bid so high to win it as the other one already won their model.

Mine sold for between $224 & $250 and was tarnish free. Got rid of most of my American fleet, only keeping a few. Over time, I believe most of these polished models will eventually tarnish.

I have heard that mentioned before. Then again some photos of the actual AA planes don't exactly show them in a highly polished look. I'm still keeping my AA collection and worry about the tarnishing later... at the moment they do look

I messaged the seller a day before the auction ended and asked if it was listed previously because I recognized the listing and he said the first auction was a non-paying bidder.

I agree Eagle Flyer that the tarnish does give it a real look as the real ones look beat after awhile...just not good on the model planes when you go to sell them. I guess if they get real bad one could make a Victorville Diorama.

The AA B722 isn't the only B722 model that is fetching some good money. Recently, a couple Jet-X BI B722 Flying Colors models sold for over $200 each.

Yet, manufacturers keep telling us that old liveries don't sell well.
