Strange that the seller will only quote a price in response to a text message.

Not really. In my experience as an occasional seller email attracts more scammers since they're harder to trace and verify. Still, it's a risk putting your cellphone number out there in my opinion.

Starting bid is about around what they go for. I inagine the 7000 is if some crazy person just had to have it. Last two operas went for 5500 and 8000 respectively on eBay.

I agree that this is much more reasonable range for today.
