I think there are some categories of items (e.g., vintage calcs & computers, ...) for which eBay is the easiest way to get one. Perhaps this might be a reason why there are more zero-feedbackers on such items.
Yup, that was how I discovered eBay - decided I 'needed' a hp-41 to replace a Casio and remembering the mystique that surrounded hps (very expensive and RPN) when I was a kid at school in the 70s I made my first of many hp calculator purchases (35, 45, 67, 21, 25C, 34C, 41C, CV and CX, 10C, 12C, 15C, 16C, 48S and 48G and 71B). Thinking about it, I would have been quite a bit richer if my original zero-feedback bid had been cancelled!!
Have since found eBay to also be a good source of Innocenti Mini Cooper (Italian built version of the sixties British Mini Cooper) spares.
