Re: Peonies

Archiem, once the real number comes out the price for this MS8 will drop dramatically, so we can assume this will not happen so soon, by my feeling I think 200+K is a realistic number. But we also need to assume, that 99% of the sold MS8 don't have an expert opinion and we know how perfect new forge...
