"My God, what an attractive couple": When Le and Jörg Seifert enter the dealership, Horst Lichter is completely blown away. The couple from Düsseldorf has done it to the moderator. And also the product that the two want to auction at "Bares for Rares".
It is an Electro-Submarino 5552 from the company Schuco, which Seifert found in the attic when selling a household. Horst Lichter and Detlev Kümmel then immediately tune into the Beatles' classic "Yellow Submarine". In general, the expert is enthusiastic: This is one of the few submarines that is used for peaceful purposes and looks more like a bus. It was built between 1963 and 1975, cumin dates to the early 70's.
Meanwhile, Lichter has completely different thoughts: "We could have put a tub of water here," says the moderator. "But that wouldn't have done us any good," replies Kümmel. Because the engine doesn't work. Which also has an impact on the estimated value: Kümmel estimates the submarine at 150 to 180 euros. The sellers could live with that: They would be satisfied with 100 to 120 euros.
In order to get the sum, salesman Seifert wants to tell two stories: tin toys and the Beatles. Markus Wildhagen starts with 40 euros due to the condition. Friedrich Häusser "continues the diving trip" and increases it to 60 euros.
"You are a mega seller," praises Wildhagen his counterpart. The seller confirms: "I'm not leaving here for 60 euros." Hausser then increased it to 100 euros. Seifert makes one last attempt to knock out a higher amount. He wanted to eat with his wife from the proceeds, said Seifert. "We come from Düsseldorf, there's only the currywurst for 100 euros." But the dealers don't go into it, it stays at 100 euros.
So in the end everyone is reasonably happy. Only one thing bothers the seller: "For a long time, I'll bear with him that Waldi didn't offer 80 euros."
