I don't know how long it was listed, but an ebay auction can be a pretty small time window for an expensive, specialty item. I sold some stuff a few months ago on there with terrible results. In the past I always listed 1 cent with no reserve and consistently got more than I expected for what I sold, on average. This time I overestimated the final price of everything and had to practically give away a couple of items for about half price. With the economy down, I don't think the ebay demand is consistent.
