Welcome to the Quilting Board!
They do that because the spouse insists they try to sell it, so they set a price so high that if it does sell, they won't cry. Anyone who writes that does not actually want to sell the machine - they only want a lot of money.
I prefer the "I just want it out of my house!" prices.
My name is Cathy - and I'm addicted to old sewing machines and their attachments.
Last night I sent the seller a gentle email about Japanese clones, and she just pulled it from sale while she investigates. Nice email from her.

She is pretty but not for the price posted.
There's no such thing as too many sewing machines!
Here is another one with "Grandma's old sewing machine" pricing. It looks a lot like my Nelco. But it is hard to tell in the dark.

Anastasia - I like to sew square things.
