I've bought from several different online auctions(non-Ebay) before. Just figure what your willing to pay, deduct the 17% (or 15% in this case)and S&H costs and that's your bid. You'd be surprised how many good deals you can get because many people feel the way some here have expressed.
You never know until you try.
The last item I got from an online auction like this was a old Marx Biplane, that was near excellent condition, all original. Doubled my money on it selling it on ebay.
