I haven't been following prices on a daily basis.
But many of these prices seem way below even wholesale.
I've not seen a 65 Elmar sell for less than $450.
I believe even KEH would offer more than $175 for a 65 elmar in  
"good" condition
(and they have to stock it, list it and resell it to earn a bit).
