I saw that one and thought much the same. Somebody got a real steal there. If it had been a couple of cm smaller and had its Jubilee RD refitted it could probably easily have fetched twice that. Or more. Or probably even been sold for that exactly as it is with better photos and from a better known seller. I see some sellers getting a huge premium in prices gotten over others.

There are some amazing bargains on Ebay from time to time, just as there are some items that sell for literally multiples of their realistic worth. Go figure.
