Silly prices for Post & Go from Stampex?

As usual after Stampex there is a flood of listings on eBay for all combinations of what was available.  And some very wild claims with prices to match.

As you can see from the previous post (below), Birds 4 were in machine #93 and that is where almost all my stock has come from.  Yet a single £5.40 strip is listed on eBay for £95 - as a starting price! Will the bunnies bite?  Maybe, but there are probably more Birds 4 from #93 in dealers hands than from the self-service machine (#91).  [You won't find that £95 one now, it's been pulled by the seller.]

Birds 3 is a different matter.  This was in machine 93 at the beginning of Stampex and most people using the self-service machines (which dispensed only Machin Centenary stamps) would not have known about Birds 3 being available.  Those are likely to be scarcer by far, from the Hytec machine. 

And I wonder if any Wincor-Nixdorf machines in Post Offices were updated before Friday, and might have dispensed 40gr stamps?  Enquiring minds need to know!
