I paid 60 for it, which I think is fair. I really like the piece

What does that mean? Aussie refers to a country and hammer is a type of coral (which grows in Australia).

Any price is fine as long as the buyer is ok with it.

FYI for future reference:
pastel/standard color hammers/pawns/torches $10-$15 per polyp/head

Any pink or green metallic coloration increases price per head $15 to $30

True gold, yellow, orange or REAL pink then you are talking about $30 to $100 per head (stores vary so widely on price once you get into this color category)

Can't really tell what color your new purchase is but if you are happy and satisfied that is all that matters.

You have been on the board since 2007, you know exactly what that means.

Australian livestock typically is more expensive and its a label that can easily be miused to mislead and charge more.

The pic really doesn't do it justice. Its definitely a color variation that I've never seen. I've been into lps for several years now. If your ever out east, stop by and check it out

Ohhhh.
For the record, your statement didnt make sense/was not clear. Now I think I get it. You were saying, I hope that was cheap, regardless of size and or color and or collection location.
