Without the arguments for and against buying, does anybody have any idea of the worth of a clean second hand super containing drawn (extracted and dry) comb?

Thanks

I would never by any frames with drawn out wax. You can sterilize the box but you cant sterilize the frames and wax.

Cheers hivemaker. They made top money at the Lincoln Auction, and were filled with waxmoth. Picked up some emply ones at £6 each which I think is about right and some unused frames in the flat £20 for 40 (Manley), which seemed reasonable. Books were cheap, and have stocked the shelf.
