    Guess is 15 years old.

    My criteria if I were examining a used egg would be condition then price then eggcessories then age. Age don't matter if its in excellent or shotty condition.

    Just my .02

    does 15 years old put it in the clay category that ive read about?

    Its not clay, and its not old enough to have the visible seam & non spring assist hinge, so I'd agree if condition is good and internals aren't cracked etc, then age is less a factor.

    they are asking 500 for it with the table and place setter, I think a large new around here goes for about 1000 is this a decent deal?

    I would not buy it. Wait for an eggfest and het a demo with a warranty. The large demo at egging in the mountains was $609 I believe. You need to see the back of the band to age it if it has springs its no more than 10-12 years old.
