Upon searching eBay earlier, I spotted this and just about had a heart attack. However, when looking at the pics, what a disappointment...

It's not "new", for sure. Now somebody could buff out the aluminum and find a replacement bag, they'd have a nice mostly original Kirby with the original boxes, attachments, etc. But I don't think anybody is going to bite with the price as it is.

Yeah, i dont know how they can call it "MINT",,dosent even have the correct bag,,and who knows what condition the motor and brush roll is actually in. Could even be missing a few fan blades. The metal is dull, and looks corroded. Maybe with the box and all the attachments it may be worth 50-60 dollars or more, but certainly not 275.00 Isnt the Handi Butler off of an earlier machine since its trimmed in red?
Oh well, a fool and his money is soon parted!

Yes, I found this too and also posted about it. See the posting entitled "WOWWWWWWW!!!" and scroll down. A few others have also commented on this seller's curious definition of "mint."
