Not really "strange", Greg -- there are a lot of differing value-systems at
play on the LUG, and thank heavens for that difference!

To a collector, the entire set is worth more than are the individual
pieces.  Box, packing material, paper, &c.  I SELL Leica boxes on e-Bay,
and I've only ever had one which didn't sell.  Many collectors also like to
set up displays of period equipment -- a camera with its box and case, a
couple of old rolls of film, and perhaps a can of old developer or the
like.  Thus, even a box of photographic paper has a value beyond its worth
at the pulping plant.
