This screenshot tells the rest of the story.

Newbie bidders dominated the last three days of the auction... one of the main reasons I rarely look at eBay anymore.

Not quite the record, Perry. I sold one before Christmas for $1525.  :D

My #7 went for $1825. That's the best I did with an oval.

The craziest piece I had was a #12 LBL Griswold skillet that went for $925. Couldn't believe that one, there's always a couple of those on eBay!

I said it on another thread also, but this same seller sold a number nine oval roaster with no trivet for two thousand and twenty five dollars. If you want the trivet, thats a few extra hundred dollars. I say good for them. I like to see these nice big high prices, but just not when I'm buyin.  ::) ;D

You're right, Perry. It's certainly a sellers market right now.
