The 38 Prog for $847 compared to the 9mm Un for $409 is indeed surprising. I paid $200 for a Prog on ebay which was just as 333OKH describes. I would take it anytime over an $847 machine for what I do.

As in live audience auctions every one is different...human nature!!

I find sumary postings interesting.

Yes Ron, does make you wonder. Most I guess is just timing.

I took a closed look, and I did notice on the 9mm for $ 409.00 that it was a progressive only. No locater straps. I was not aware Star made a progressive in anything but 32 or 38. Maybe, or it was a parts press that was adapted?

Ken,
The Star listed [no e-mail]@ Perry belonged to a longtime friend and fellow shooter from Port Clinton now deceased. It was sold for the family by a mutual friend & shooter. There was no interest in it locally. There was only minimal interest [no e-mail]@ Perry but it did sell for the asking price. As I understand it the buyer already owns more than 1 star & may have been buying it for a friend.

The case feeder was a copy made by one of our club shooters using a Hulme as a pattern. There were 2 heads, the machine being set up for 38 & 45.To my knowledge it was well cared for.

Perry is probably the best place to sell one short of on line. All those Bullseye shooters in one location.

From the picture, it did look clean, and with both heads, a plus.
Hard to tell from the picture about the case feeder, but as you say it appeared well cared for.

I did not think it would last too long, and it did not.

Kenn,

There appears to be buyer "resistance" when the seller establishes a rather high, but not out of line, starting price. Independence? Often there are no bids though machines regularly are sold in the price rangez/

I noticed one seller of a star with extra head etc. had no transactions by his name---new to EBAY--.  I have noticed in the past on other items that there are often no bids when there is no experience with the seller.  That may have had something to do with it, perhaps.

I am sure it does. There is always a certain amount of trust required on Ebay, Gunbroker, etc. and that s often impacted by the amount in question.
No one wants to lose money, but taking a chance and losing $ 10.00 is more acceptable than risking a
$ 100.00 or more as some items are.
