    Bowditch 1966 on eBay $1.00
    From: Paul Hirose

    This 1966 Bowditch in good condition was up for auction on eBay for
    $1.00 (no reserve price) but got no bidders. A few times when items
    got no bids, I told the sellers I'd bid if they relisted the item at
    the same price. They always did, or in one case sold it to me "under
    the table". (You're not supposed to ask sellers to do a transaction
    outside eBay, and I never have, but if the other guy makes the offer
    and his record is good...)
    Often when I see an item like an old Bowditch or H.O. sight reduction
    table on eBay I'm unsure what I ought to do. I've always kept quiet
    for fear of upsetting someone on the mailing list who is watching that
    Of course if the item is something I want, ain't NOBODY going to hear
    about it! Normally I will not even enter a bid until three seconds
    before the auction ends.
