Nah, an object is always worth what the buyer is willing to pay and the 
seller is willing to give it up for.  There is no such thing as a 
correct or incorrect price, so long as both sides are free to negotiate, 
which, on eBay, they are.

That said, in my own opinion (and that's all it is), I suspect we are 
seeing higher prices because people perceive fewer opportunities to 
acquire working systems in the future.  When I got my own, the community 
of Commodore fans was not too far removed in time from two important events:
1. The beginning of their earning-power careers.
2. The big grapevine sales that shuffled C65s around to people willing 
to pay $100 or so for one.
This means that, at that time, the buyers had less income, and the 
sellers had less investment, so the prices were lower.

In the distant future, as we all retire or die off, the prices on such 
things will plummit again, but for the time being, we may see prices 
continue to rise for another 20 years or so.
