45. That's what I thought! It's a specialty item
There are brokers for that kind of thing, and people who want that kind of item are looking for it through (non-Ebay) channels that handle that sort of item.

High end, big ticket, specialty items (like a plane or horse for example) require knowledgeable facilitators to ensure an equitable sale. If I were to sell a horse on Ebay, I'd be gambling that the average buyer didn't know squat about buying a horse or it was some kind of scam. Same with a plane that requires an expert to ascertain that the item is genuine, saleable, serviceable, etc.

Sarah Palin could easily say that she "tried" to get $2.5 mil (or name your price) on Ebay - which is a completely inappropriate place to "get" your price for something like a plane - and when she couldn't (because the audience on Ebay isn't that kind of buyer), she was then free to make a private sale to her pal at a reduced rate.

Major scam.
