yes my apologies, it was just seeing a £350 book started for 0.99 brought out my natural suspicion :)

Actually, I've had the best success on ebay by starting auctions at $0.99, with no reserve. High starting prices (and reserves) seem to deter a lot of propective buyers. I see your point about cheap=suspicious, but this approach IMO is as honest as it gets. You will not find a more accurate determination of value than testing the open market.

Oh, and if your looking for dodgy, here's a true example:

hah yes it's probably my favourite. It was one of the first things I bought when I originally started collecting. I foolishly stopped for a bit and missed a few nice things, but now I've started again with a vengence :)
