Checking the going rate because about to sell one similar, I see this auction bidding ended with this 10" K splash at $365 (typically otherwise seems to be a $75-100 cymbal). Was this just a bunk auction with attemp at shill bidding? or something special about this (early USA/EAK)? Scoping out the seller, seems is a pawn/reseller, but does list several musical instruments including used cymbals, and states weights in grams in listing title, but nothing about cymbals in descriptions. Seems like somewhat good seller from feedback. https://www.ebay.com/itm/2345768202...=true&nordt=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557

Impossible to tell if shill bidding was a factor, at least for me. I think it could be an EAK but I'm not good enough at identifying those (at least in splash sizes) to know for sure.

Definitely an EAK Splash, but way overpriced. It's not particularly light either so maybe somebody just bidding up their competition? They don't come up for sale very often so it's also possible that the buyer has been looking for a while and just had to have this one.
