Found a new in the box TMK 755C portable on ebay. The seller only wants $16,000. for it, is that a good buy, but wait it's rare and I think free shipping.

$16k for anything that ain't pre-wwII is only a good deal if there's free shipping and you happen to live on Mars...

In non-English speaking countries 16,000 = 16.
But if the price is sixteen thousand U.S. Dollars... then is madness.

Several years ago, someone on a camera collectors' forum pointed out an EBay auction for a Polaroid One Step with a starting bid of $10,000. The One Step was a bottom-of-the-line camera that sold for about $20 when new, and by this time, would be seen in thrift stores for a few dollars and on EBay where auctions with $5 minimum bids ended without a bidder.
Everyone on our board laughed, but someone actually met the $10K minimum.
We speculated that the One Step was actually a ruse for some other commodity understood in a circle of traders.

There is a gas station near me that sells new wristwatches from a display and the watches are priced in the $200-400 range. The watches look gaudy, but cheap. I'm suspecting that the actual product is something other than the watch.

I did a stretch of hard time selling TV's at Sears. "Dreamers" A.K.A
illegals would buy gift cards with cash sometimes over 1K at a
time. And that was just at my register. There must be billions getting
laundered that way. Another one is in the cities big bottles of
Tide detergent are used as a currency.
