Building on what Glenn said, with eBay, it's the bidders that determine the price, not the sellers. So yes, what Glenn said about what these machines are worth by using eBay sales is exactly right.
The shipping charges though, yeah, they can be outrageous but that's because the shipping industry has massively jacked up their prices. I shipped an iPad to Arizona using 2 day shipping and it cost me $100. WTF!
For what it's worth, every H89 I bought on eBay (about 7 or so) were all shipped in a box with packing peanuts around it and they all arrived intact with no damage. I even saw the UPS guy "roll" the heavy box out of his truck once.
