How! When!!??

I only just discovered that Faber Castell No 73 electric machine white pencil eraser 7” refill strips (75214) are  not available anywhere, and I’m guessing have been discontinued by the manufacturer. I see partly-filled boxes for sale on eBay for $50! The last time I bought a box  in the late 90’s was around $7. I had a few other half-boxes, but I’m running low… aiiiieeeeee!!!!!!!   :-(

This has not made my day any better. First Kodachrome, then Pelikan Graphic White, and now this…
