Hello everyone,

I have six puzzles to offer for sale. This is my first time selling puzzles; I decided it would be a good idea to raise some extra cash while giving other puzzle enthusiasts a chance to enjoy some rare puzzles. I have been in the TP community for a few years now and I have proven myself to be reliable when buying puzzles from various members, so I hope that will assure you of my trustworthiness as a seller. Sorry that I am unable to make videos, but I hope the photos and descriptions give a fair reflection of what is on offer. I will accept offers by private message until the end of Friday, December 7th (midnight EST). For each puzzle where my reserve price is met I will try to send the puzzle on Saturday, December 8th.

2x2x4 by Tony Fisher

This is a fully-functional cuboid handmade puzzle with 34 mm size cubies, signed by the author. It has been jumbled and solved a few dozen times and has been been kept in mint condition. It turns beautifully, as one would expect. It is not suitable for speed-solving, but turns are smooth provided there is no misalignment.

Same size and condition as the 2x2x4 above.

I believe this is one of only four or five 4x4x5 puzzles made by Jin Kim, who is currently an administrator here at TP. It was made ingeniously and painstakingly by hand from a 5x5x5 Eastsheen, and therefore has 15 mm size cubies. I have not played with a mass-produced 4x4x5 to make a direct comparison, but the turning of this custom puzzle is excellent, and probably superior to the mass-produced puzzle. The puzzle is in mint condition.

Description here. The puzzle has been broken in nicely and turns as well as in Tom’s video.

This is a sealed, unopened puzzle from 1980. The top of the puzzle is marked "©1980 BY Nintendo" and "PAT.PEND. MADE IN JAPAN", and the tape sealing the puzzle at the bottom is marked "Das 10 Milliarden-Ding von Bienengraeber, Hamburg". Mint condition and very rare.
