DEC PDP-8 “Straight 8” May or May Not Have Sold for 5-Figure Sum

The seller of a DEC PDP-8 on eBay recently updated the description to say that he has accepted an offer near his asking price of $18,000, pending receipt of funds. The “straight 8” is perhaps the most sought-after DEC model among collectors, and very few (if any) have been publicly sold. Assuming the accepted offer is somewhere between $15,000 and $17,000 (and that this is not a ploy on the seller’s part), I believe this would be a record price for a PDP-8 if the sale goes through. Does anyone know otherwise?
