OK, this get weirder.  The bidder has been around since 2003.
Using the bidder's feedback to go back a little further than
the "search by bidder" allows, ryonash bought:

A couple of decwriters and some mac bits for cheap.

A PDP8 with teletype: 110205856805 $3200
A Mac Se: 200183993762             $150 (a little expensive)
A decwriter: 320185941487          $150 (a little expensive)
Another ASR33: 290185013845        $250 (much more reasonable)

If he/she knows that ttys can be had for $250, why the big bids?
He/she now has three ASR33s and three decwriters, what's he/she
doing, building a historical movie set?
