Bids this expensive are usually arranged with an escrow service to avoid
fraud.  IMOHO, this particular instrument will get no bids at the $50K
level.  While it's rare, a more realistic price might be around $20K.  When
you're dealing with "one of a kind" sort of stuff, you buy where they're
sold--and that includes eBay.  It's quite possible that a deal will be
arranged between the seller and another party after the auction has ended
with no bids.  Ebay is some of the cheapest advertising you can buy for
non-mass produced items.

Cheers,
Chuck
