So the price tag is from the name, owning a part of his catalog. I can understand that. I guess I was just curious if they were extremely rare or something. Seems like most of you guys have or want one.

His metal tube chess set recently sold for 2,000. Too high for me but I hope to track one down one day. I've watched the last few zen puzzles looking for a bargain (<100$) and the last 4 have all sold in the 150-200 range.

Maybe this helps,... but probably you want to have the real thing. :)

Hello all, I am new to this sight. I recently purchased two Charles Perry original and signed puzzles. One is the brass puzzle ball and the other is his zen puzzle. I found them at an estate sale, and bought them just because I liked the way that they looked. I paid very very little for them. After the purchase I wanted to know more about them and a quick google search showed me that these are actually very collectable and way more valuable than I would have ever thought. I like them, but could do with the funds more that the fun. I am wondering if I am allowed to offer them for sale on this sight, or if I should put them on ebay and then notify that they are for sale. I would rather not use ebay if possible. I can post pictures if anyone is interested in seeing them. Also feel free to email me at kevk@email.com. Thanks and I am very interested in these little puzzles.

It's fine for you to sell your puzzles here if you wish.
I also run an auction site specifically for selling puzzles called Puzzle Paradise. We don't charge any fees at all for buying or selling. You can list as buy-it-now put on a reserve and relist as many times as you like.

Whichever site you choose to use, decent pictures would be good.

Chris, that's great thanks. There was a puzzle paradise site previously but always down.

Neil and I took over the previous site from John when he decided that he didn't want to do it any longer :)

What do you fellows think a fair price is for the Charles Perry puzzle ball and zen puzzle individually. It seems to me that the zen puzzle is the rarer or more desirable puzzle.

I am having trouble loading pics any advice?

Zen is indeed more rare. Personally I like it above the other, but both are great puzzles. I would just give it a go on eBay and look were it ends up. Maybe set a minimum but shouldn't be necessary.
