Highlights: "Would stop here now": "Cash for Rares" dealers throw out outrageous saleswoman. Aynur Patan did not want to sell her gold bracelet for less than 4,000 euros. At 3,600 euros, however, the dealers stop – no one wants to spend more on the bracelet. "You've got 80, the dealer is visibly shocked.

A "Cash for Rares" seller wanted to make big money with an 80-euro flea market find – but that didn't go down well with the dealers. They sent the greedy lady home.

Pulheim – Most sellers go home with a smile and a lot of money at "Bares für Rares". It could also be the same for Aynur Patan – after all, her flea market find for just 80 euros is estimated at several thousand euros. But she can't come to an agreement with the dealers and is sent home with the antique.

"I can hardly believe it": "Cash for Rares" expert surprised by cheap purchase price

With her friend Simone Bödicker, sales assistant Aynur Patan marches into the "Bares für Rares" studio in Pulheim – an elegant, golden piece of jewellery in her luggage. Expert Dr. Heide Rezepa-Zabel (58) is quite surprised when the Hamburg native reveals: "I got it from the flea market – I traded there for 80 euros, but I thought it already looked like gold." On closer inspection, it quickly turns out that the gold piece is actually worth much more than 80 euros.

The expertise is: 3,800 to 4,000 euros. But is this price okay for the seller? After all, there is a clear rule at "Cash for Rares". Only those who want to get rid of their rarity for the estimated sum will get permission from presenter Horst Lichter (61) to go to the dealer's room. With the aim of negotiating something, the friends walk on with their merchant card. After all, it's not uncommon for "Cash for Rares" pieces to fetch 26 times as much in the dealer's room.

The highest bid so far for "Cash for Rares"

Jewellery expert Susanne Steiger has so far bid the highest bid for an exhibit in the ZDF programme. In the special "Bares für Rares" evening edition on 12 July 2018, a Mercedes-Benz Cabriolet 190 SL from 1961 was offered in red. This sports car model was produced between 1955 and 1963. Steiger offered a whopping 90,000 euros. However, the seller refused, as he did not want to sell his classic car for less than 100,000 euros.



Outrageous asking price? Dealers Kick Out "Cash for Rares" Saleswoman

The dealers are quite enthusiastic about the magnificent bracelet – and are eager to know what sum Aynur bought the piece for. However, the seller does not want to reveal this for the time being and prefers to wait for the bids. It's no wonder that when there is a lot of interest, the first bid is also quite high. At 3,600 euros, however, the dealers stop – no one wants to spend more on the bracelet.

That's not enough for Aynur. Although the estimate starts at 3,800 euros, she does not want to sell for less than 4,000 euros. When she reveals that she has only paid 80 euros, the dealers are visibly shocked. "You've got culture, girl. That's what I call a house number," exclaims Walter Lehnertz (56). Christian Vechtel (48), who was happy to buy the piece, sends the saleswoman directly home: "Then we would stop here now and we will bring it to you afterwards."

But what is Aylin doing with the bracelet now? There is no real plan. "At home, it will be lying around for a bit, and maybe sold elsewhere, and if not, it will be an heirloom," she explains to the dealers after the bankruptcy. Another five-euro flea market find even brought a seller almost 30,000 euros. Sources used:Cash for Rares/ ZDF
