    Hobo, it seems that person is making a photo art album of odd things, like toilet paper quilt patterns, pop tabs and fingerprints. Sort of like Any Warhol, but even more odd. :)

    I don't mind if someone low balls me on CL. They are allowed to ask, and I am allowed to say no. Some times I just keep the low baller's number and I might change my mind and contact them later.

    It helps to have a loupe to find some of the marks, and look around the clasps if there's nothing on the back.
