And if this guy (who is also offering the "Atom Smasher") ever gets down to a price I can afford - his initial reserve was $2500 - I will just go over and pick it up. He is within a 1.75 hour (non-rush)drive from me. The most I have ever seen for this kind of item on EBay is $720.0

The jar would have to be professionally crated or palletized and shipped by motor freight. I tend not to go for things that I am unable to move with my own two hands (and maybe a hand truck).
