Based on what is stated in the auction, I don't see how you can think this is necessarily a bad bid. $100 for a 41CX that might be fixable and in excellent condition, doesn't sound like a bad deal.
If the battery contacts are good, the calculator can likely be repaired very easily.
Perhaps the bidder asked questions. That is the #1 thing that bidders should do, before bidding.
Some of my best buys are broken items.
PS: The real problem is that tom3151 is simply running up the bid, 4 days before it is necessary. That is the problem with bidding early. It just runs the bid up. However, even if he waited 7 days, the bid would still be at $100+. Since he didn't become the high bidder, you can bet the final bid will be higher than the current bid.
