    Plot twist: It's $250 in buying power from Greb's era.

    Depends on the film. Some seldom seen films go for a few hundred dollars for the 1970's. For example Quarry vs. Lyle used to fetch this type of coin before someone uploaded it on you tube. It's a narrow market with few buyers.

    That's why I said $300.

    People do spend five figures for fight films, but they tend to be a collection of fights/highlights/interviews/training footage/etc.

    Not five figures for one fight ... unless I missed some famous ones.

    A Greb film would be one of a kind confirmed rarity. Even a fake film a while back was asking $100,000.000 for it.

    I’d probably part with a few hundred for Leonard-Shields or Danny Lopez-Sean O’Grady if they were good quality.

    If that guy uncovered film of Greb and Harry didn’t look like the greatest of all time, he’d burn the film.

    It’s a very small market and only getting smaller as time goes by. Only die hard fans even know Greb today. You go to a bar or a boxing match and bring up Greb 19 out of 20 people don’t know him. I hope it does get found as I would like to see it but I doubt it fetches some sort of record price.

    Many many well known silent films are gone forever because either the film itself was dissolved for the nitrate. Even if the film wasn't destroyed on purpose it would have to have been saved in the right climate to survive.
