Type 57 SCs don't come up on Ebay too often and the price wasn't unprecedented. The 57s "no marque" logo, the nice detail of the Verot-Ferrin stamps to me add funk vs. the later and more common Type 63 SC and if the buyer was OK with or even planned on rethreading to BSC, the bunged threads in the left arm probably wouldn't concern much. It's a pretty rare and beautiful vintage crankset advertised as the 1st alloy cotterless set where the rings could be swapped without necessitating removal of either the pedals or arms.
