    I dunno. Hoping it sells so they can list their used 361 junkers for that price?

    I see some new 200Ts listed for upward of $1,500 on Ebay now too. :eek:

    Weird. It is not an obvious fat-finger job unless they wanted to list it for $419 using the keyboard keypad, but 419 is a weird price too.

    I'm guessing the 11 watchers are in it for entertainment purposes.

    As much as I like my 361 I'd send it packing for that kind of cash without a second thought.

    A clown at work sold his "lucky dollar" on ebay last week......
    It was a comical listing, put in the oddities forum or something like that. Funny thing was, he put a disclaimer at the end of the listing that said "note: the dollar pictured and being sold is NOT actually my lucky dollar.....I accidentally used my lucky dollar at the store the other day..."

    people actually BID on that damm auction! And the winning bid was for....get ready for this.....$1.00!!:p

    Or they are there for shill bids? I thought of the rest of the stuff you said here Fat fingers would list the price at $3,419... I wonder if they had to pay a fat listing fee?

    I would even ship my 'museum quality' 361 for that price, free shipping (even to Oz).

    This is funny - I've seen lots of way overpriced saws, but this is the best (worst) so far! Cheers!

    I got a 361 that I may be listing soon. For that much? He'll, I'd sell every saw I have for that much. Even the biggest, that's been to Tn.

    Maybe it was just a typo, and they meant to price it at $419? Looking at their other listings, dramatically overpricing stuff doesn't appear to be their normal M.O.

    It's tempting to message them and ask what they're thinking, but that's a rabbit hole I probably shouldn't go down.

    Looks like a pawn shop. who knows with those weird folks, they price stuff all messed up all the time. maybe they have some method of writing stuff off as a loss?

    Yah, pawned saws are usually overpriced crap. But every now and then... I bought a super clean low hour 310 priced at $200 at a pawn shop 2 years ago. Took me off guard, and I paid cash so it was $190. I did not even start it before I bought it. It was near perfect, not even fully broken in yet. Took it home and it ran like a top. I modded the muffler and it was a good runner. I sold it last year with a similar low hour 361 for $800 for the pair to some part time loggers in WA. They had the same model saws ripped off and were replacing them.

    Yah, and 'only' $150 more than I was buying them for new when they were discontinued. That is about like the one I sold last year for $500. At least it has a spare RS chain and an ES bar, and with free shipping, there are far worse deals to be had.

    That is not bad for a new 361. Though it looks like there are some nicks on the bar, likely from running it to tune it at the shop. Some guy sold several new 361s for $800 new on AS (and got a lot of flap for it). The 361 listed for $600 here when they were end of lifed.

    Looks like an ES 28 inch bar on that as well. Too long a bar for the stock oil pump on that saw. I bought several with 28s on them, and they all had burned rails from not enough oil. $100 just for that B&C though.

    It may have been someone that had no idea what that had or it's value. when selling something I always say start high, it is easier to down in price than up. But I think that price may have been a few dollars high!

    $475 sounds about right? They sell all day for that price..

    Got one I'd let go down the River. ..
