Seller is out of his mind obviously. Hacked boards are much more rare than non hacked boards in my experience. It's also hilarious that you point out the fact that you have not changed that alkaline batteries that are still on the board in 12 years as a selling point. Kudos on not doing an ounce of maintenance since you've had it. Obviously that is some great added value right there. This is probably worth several hundred below the average price. It takes a lot to get me to call out a ridiculous seller. So I guess you can add that to your list of life accomplishments.
