Hi Tony, Yes, there are some deals to be had on EBay.
Recently, I have been looking for vintage Campagnolo Nuovo Record parts. Sometimes I got embroiled in a hot and heavy bidding, where the price rose fast and furiously in the last few minutes of the auction. Whereas, on other occasions, there was no opposition in sight for the same item that is every bit as good. I cannot think of a good reason for this, but I guess you are correct, it could be the wording of the item description.
Anyway, I am glad that you are able to turn a profit.
