After 25+ years in the restaurant business, I have quite a few tap handles sitting in a box in The basement. Not one of my distributors in 8 different Ohio counties ever asked for one back. Several of those distros worked on rotating tap basis with me for years on end: new draft equaled new handle every 2 weeks, or 2 months, how ever long it took. I actually would ask the reps when I switched locations, and still none wanted them back. After use, they occasionally would have a worn look, but were obviously still functional. Not sure if that was how this collection came about, but I sold probably $200 worth on ebay years ago when between jobs. Never an intention on my part to "get one over" on a brewer or distro rep, they just take up space in the liquor closet and eventually would get tossed or taken home by someone.
