Note (5/31/14) — This item has been re-listed, see here.
It’s not often that a typewriter on eBay is authentically rare, but this one is. Seller lauraw8780 is offering an 1875 Sholes & Glidden machine (Ser. No. A1665) for a “buy-it-now” price of $29,900, best offers considered. Richard Polt displays a similar machine (Ser. No. A1119) at TypewriterDatabase.com, describing it as a “remodeled and repainted” S&G, which was sold by Remington. The Remington logo appears on the one offered for sale on eBay.
Whether a Sholes & Glidden is worth nearly $30,000, I cannot say, but it is desirable.
