Fuzzy Bennet's Tops $400

Last week on ebay this Bennet's Celebrated Stomach Bitters sold for $416.77.
Although the description left a bit to be desired "Nice western bitters in a medium amber color. Clean glass with no damage. Has nice applied top." and the pictures of the bottle were somewhat fuzzy, this Bennet's sold for what I thought was a reasonable price. Maybe the reason for the bargain price was the fact that only 6 bidders placed 16 bids during the 5 day auction.
That being said, it would be hard for this old collector to place a bid on a bottle that had a sketchy description, fuzzy photos and absolutely no picture of the top. But then, I guess I'm from the old school.
