I hope I have the right forum for this question:

I have an old school platemail coal suit. It's made of the coal ingots that were created from the coal given out many christmasses ago. It looks like a typical platemail suit, but is darker than the shadow color. Does anyone know aproximately how much this is worth?

In addition to that, I have a collection of those same coal ingots. They're named like normal ingots but have the coal color. As far as I know, they cannot be used to make anything (but I can't swear to that). Any idea how much these are worth each?

Thank you very much!

I'm sorry, I do not know the price for these - it's the first time I ever hear about this. But if I were not broke, I'd pay quite a lot for such an armor.

sounds real expensive
For to win one hundred victories in one hundred battles is not the acme of skill. To subdue the enemy without fighting is the acme of skill.

Well, that's a start. :)

Thanks for your thoughts. :)

Does anyone have a guestimate for me?

Could be worth a bit more on Lake Austin as these items were no longer availible when that shard was created.

Nope, it doesn't say coal... as far as I know, it's a different shade than the ones that could be purchased, but I could be mistaken. I'd have to do some research before I could say for sure, lol.

A Real coal suit I wouldn't price anymore than 5mill. And that's only because (as previously said by other posters) that you could buy shadow hued from the NPC. Unfortunately, it doesn't matter how rare it is in reference to those not-so-rare buys, because the average Joe collector wouldn't know the difference, and the NPC bought ones are still dime-a-dozen.


:o


I would just keep it! =)

*Edit*

I would VALUE the set at probably between 8-12million, tho:)

Well, I know this thread is over a month old, but on GL, in the last couple weeks, three of these sets have sold. Two sets of full coal plate mail armor were bought by a guildie of mine for 20 mill, 10 million apiece. The week before Christmas, a full coal plate mail set all created by the same blacksmith (Nike of HongKong lol) sold at MOA auction for 27 million gold. This set was bought by another guildmate of mine who promptly turned around and gave it to me as a Christmas present.:) There is no question when you look at them that they are much darker than any NPC bought plate set. They're quite unique, and getting scarcer.

If anybody knows the time-value of money in UO, the old Honey Rares site listed these prices back in 2003 :)


GM set - 5 mil
Non-GM set - 650-900K
Non-GM per piece - 100-150K

In addition, the coal ingots and armor were never 'labeled' coal. You weren't supposed to be able to smelt the lumps of coal, so it didn't give it a 'name'.

Also, I didn't think you could buy the armor from vendors, I thought that was when you could kill the vendors FOR their armor?... guess I could be remembering wrongly...

Thanks Nev!

there was a bug to reproduce the ingots though which did involve vendors. Im not sure if it still works but you can thank that bug for the existance of the thousands of ingots you see (not the ore) virtually worthless
