Heck, if you get lucky, you might end up paying $2 for a bit that is actually worth $500+.

And, even if you don't get lucky, you'd still have some fancy decoration for your living room or tack room. That's what I recently did with all the old bits that I don't/won't use anymore. They weren't worth enough to try to sell them so I just hung them in the tack room as decor.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

This is a Les Vogt bit I bought for my former horse, Red. It is hanging in my tack closet at the barn. It will be hanging on the wall of my "girl cave" when I get it painted and pulled together!!

That is about what they worth, of course depending on the maker, style and condition. Garcias start at $375 new. Francos are the same. (That is what the Les Vogt bit above is, not to be confused with the old Vogt bits) Anything vintage will be considerably more. And same with custom made ones depending on the maker. Ernie Marsh's starting price is $2500!

I hope you find something, that would be cool!

I'm definitely going to go look now.. I know a bunch of old farmers that will let me dig through their barns too.
