Just not true that the higher the price the better the item. Here is a comparison I used to pay 60 euros for appearing canes from Germany. Now I pay just 5 for canes of the same or BETTER quality from China. Price is not an automatic dictator of quality and often the lower priced items are as good in not BETTER than the higher priced items. Same is true of sponge eggs. I paid 4 euros each at one time. Now I can get 10 for that price and I think the new ones are better.

I think that it all depends upon why you are making the purchase. If you are buying for utilitarian reasons, you might look for the most efficient way to accomplish your goal at the most reasonable price. If you take pride in collecting, you may look in another direction. Stepping away from coins for a moment, cups and balls are a perfect example.
