 Speaking of the "world" , the BC-610E is going to Spain . The shipping alone is about 15 times the "$60 to $100..for some collector" price suggested by one clueless responder   Grin

    He also seemed uninformed regarding the fact that many of these old beauties remain in regular use .  They already have a better survivor rate than many 29 year old solid state appliances !

Well, that tidbit confirms this is NOT an ordinary sale, and does not represent a typical radio.

This is a high end sale going to a foreign with deep pockets and no concern for price.

My impression remains that over the last five years or so, the average BC-610 available on eBay is 1. Not working 2. Needs significant work 2.a. Is missing numberous parts 3. Bargains can be found as low as $300 and probably range up to $600,

 The weight and size of the radio and great difficulty and expense of shipping limit buyers to within a short distance and thereby also holds down prices.

Actually , the prices are quite typical current prices . I had two other US hams call me after the auction (it only lasted about three hours) to tell me they found out too late and if the other buyer failed to follow through they would indeed take it. One was 200 miles away , the other 500 miles .
 There was also an untested I model that sold on ebay about the same time for $1125 that was missing the big tubes and 2a3s .  It had no tuning units or coils . There was plenty of bidding activity .  

 Yes , $1000 plus is typical , and more for complete , working examples . A bargain at that  .


Fact is  $300 may buy a very nasty one but $300 is far from a typical price for a typical sale .

 
A very nice SX-115 sold today at Monroe for $90 and a real pristine Navigator went for $45 .

These are indeed bargain prices  but bargain price are just that , no connection to market value ..

I'd bet a donut a Navigator and SX-115 show up on eBay on Sunday night... with big reserves.
