Not to nit-pick, but if I were the seller of the first one and went to all the effort to install new gaskets and "tune", why on earth not spend a few extra dollars on a new rubber collar for the back? Those make a tremendous difference in performance and the one here looks petrified.

The second one just seems optimistic to say the least, mine cost me somewhere around $400 on UK eBay a few years ago with it's original box and some extras.

It's always interesting to see these turn up with prices all over the map, though!

Agreed, the latter does seem highly optimistic for an opening price, but several have sold for around that amount over the past year or so.
