Subject: [CR]A new Japanese collector in town

I was watching this Huret Jubilee FD, but it was bought by a Japanese collector I've not encountered before:

http://cgi.ebay.com/HURET-JUBILEE-EARLY-FRONT-DERAILLEUR-GOOD-CONDITION_W0QQitemZ300138816567QQihZ020QQcategoryZ56197QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

takehito2007 paid $113.50, hardly a new record, but well above what I was considering bidding considering the derailleur is clearly used. He only has 11 feedbacks so far and eBay lists him a a new member in Japan in May of this year. Don't know if this guy represents a new generation of Japanese collector or if he is a long time collector who is just now beginning to participate directly on eBay. His 11 feedbacks so for are from purchases of a complete PX-10 plus various French bits typically of interest to Japanese collectors.

I think we may be seeing a lot more of takehito2007 in the future.
