I asked the seller about that auction shortly after it ended. Believe me,
he was ready and willing to sell to either of the top two bidders for
their bids, and both bidders backed out.

I think the highest recorded sale for an Altair was around $5000, which is
still absurd, but only by an order of magnitude or so.
