I too sometimes shake my head in wonder…….. OTOH, I have some items that I wouldn’t think of selling for any reasonable price. In the end, if a seller and a buyer agree on a price, whatever that price is, then it isn’t unreasonable to them.
Heck – someone just paid 1,000,800.00 (That’s 1 million and 800 dollars) for the baseball bat that Babe Ruth hit his 500th home run with. To me that is just a carved stick. But to at least two people, the seller and the buyer, that carved stick was worth a whole lot.
I have a 1944 M-1 Garand rifle here, I rechambered it in the modern 7.62mm x 51mm cartridge, and dropped it in a glass-bedded laminate stock. You can buy them through the CMP all day for $650.00. I wouldn’t sell this one for $5,000.00. On a calm day it will hold 1200 meters.
My biggest fear is that when I die, my wife will sell my radios and guns for what I told her I paid. I hope my son will step up and help sell the guns. The radios? Maybe will them to the grandson (KI5DYU).

It’s amazing what some people think stuff is worth. But then, some of my ATS rigs sold for some insane money on occasion.
I saw a junk HB 40 meter rig for sale at $150. I offered 10, got rejected. Someone eventually bought the thing for close to the asking price. They got about 10 dollars in parts for that investment!
I know I couldn't believe it. Now I'm afraid to use mine. Ha ha.
