It's probably reasonable. It's not a steal. Unfortunately for you,
that seller (glossa7) knows what s/he's doing. I've bid against him
on several items, and he typically bids immediately at a reasonable
price level on the items. It was very frustrating when I was buying
old HP counters to strip out their oscillators. People kept wanting to
actually pay a reasonable price for them...
You probably won't regret paying $475 - they're about 3x that new - but
it's on the edge of what I'd pay for a surplus Rb oscillator. On the
bright side, that seller _does_ seem to know what he's doing, and I've
seen him on ebay for a long time, so I'd believe him when he says that
the oscillator is working perfectly.
If I saw one for $300 or less, I'd snap it up immediatley. (anyone
