And to the seller's credit, he could have made the ad very sleazy by specifying the table's location's importance. "IAN CURTIS TABLE - INCHES FROM HIS HANGED BODY."
So he made some money, and a very obsessed JD fan (or possibly a re-seller, if they think it could go for more) got a very unique item. There's grey areas there, to be sure, but I don't have a problem with it. I would, however, find it distasteful if the buyer re-sells it using the very tactics this seller avoided.
