eBay sellers are notorious for claiming something is "rare" or "new" or some
other descriptive term when it can often be bought almost anywhere. The
black "waroc" may go through the roof but that's the nature of eBay. If
people want it the price will rise. As for the A. regale, it was
pointed out to me the photo had a man standing behind the leaf that makes the
