This 'head only' stainless 7A38-7000 was listed late last night by a US eBay seller, who doesn't seem to have much idea, as a 7-day auction with an opening bid price of $99.99. It's being offered through eBay's semi-functional GSP programme. :roll:

That 7-day US eBay auction for a 7A38-7000 Head Only ended late last night, selling for $168.50 after 6 bids.

This suspect looking stainless 7A38-7000 was listed this morning by a Serbian eBay seller, with a risible 'pie-in-the-sky' Buy-it-Now price of $440. Difficult to figure out its true condition from the dark and dingy photos. I suspect it's been refinished. The dial lume is obviously degraded - hence the 'Tropical Dial'. :roll: Per the listing title, it is fitted with the wrong case-back off a black chrome 7A38-7100. That much you can make out from the seller's photo of it, although the other pertinent stampings are conviently out of focus. Probably one best avoided at any cost, let alone this stupid asking price.

I really don't know why I bother sometimes.

It appears somebody has actually just paid the $440 Buy-it-Now price, for the above stainless 7A38-7000 with a 'Tropical' (read moisture damaged) dial and fitted with the wrong case-back off a 7A38-7100 ?

Being a 'Private Listing' the eBay Purchase History affords them anonymity. :roll:

Common sense must have prevailed after all, because it was back on eBay again, re-listed in the early hours of this morning.

That suspect-looking stainless 7A38-7000 appears to have sold once again in the early hours of this morning - again for the $440 Buy-it-Now price.

At the risk of repeating myself, as confirmed by the eBay Purchase History:
