Exactly, over price an item too much and you loose any sudden "wow" factor. I've observed that many times before.

Just from watching, it seems the best strategy is to research, research, research, and find what such an item would sell for in the particular venue. Perhaps then add a small percent on top of that and after a while lower it a bit it if does not sell.

On the other hand, if you don't mind waiting YEARS for an item to sell at multiple times the going price, you might eventually get lucky and have it snatched up by some rich person or the military or some such. How many years do you have in your life to spend?
