Does anybody remember what the cost of an Albion Yeoman or Poitiers was when they just announced them and offered Introductory prices?

Thanks!

I think the Poitiers was at $588 US. I'm not certain about the Yeoman. I remember the Roman gladii were initially priced at $500 US and were the cheapest NG swords available. Many of the "simpler" single handed swords were placed around the $580 range. So I think that's where the Poitiers started at.

I think the Yeoman was around 680$ when introduced, although I'm not sure. This was the original price for the Laird and I seem to recall that there were a number of single handers of similar complexity that were all in the same price range at that time. I think the Yeoman was one of them, although once again I could be misremembering. Those prices make me feel a bit nostalgic...

Egads, I guess it figures but I never would have guessed you could still turn up a page that old. The Yeoman isn't in there though....

Thanks, guys. I posted while it crossed my mind and also went to the wayback machine shortly after posting. I appreciate your responses!

I just wasn't sure if these were the base initial prices or if they reflected the introductory discount as well?

The Poitiers had a price of $525 when I ordered mine before it was released.

Perfect.

That gives me an idea of what the introductory discount was and I can estimate the ballpark at least.

Cheers!
