Fair price?

http://www.ebay.com/itm/RARE-1978-1st-Edition-1st-Printing-Stephen-Kings-Night-Shift-w-Dust-Jacket-yqz-/331119363444?_trksid=p2047675.l2557&autorefresh=true&_trkparms=gh1g%3DI331119363444.N7.S1.M30.R6.TR18&nma=true&si=PKsYb6TKzaWZI9Gs5v2bLANpWVs%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc

If someone from the site picked this up congrats. But was thinking this may have been a little high considering the apparent water damage and the spine condition? Am I correct?

Hi personally i think this is quite a "fair "price. although i got mine for $500 in near fine condition. in my experience Night shift is the only one of the five Doubleday books that is quite rare to see on Ebay Salem's lot coming in second (just my experience), and when it does pop up it goes just as quick.

I think the DJ looks in pretty good condition and that's going to be more of the driving factor than the book. Although if there is water damage it must be pretty light, I don't see the obvious wavy pages you'd get from water damage.

I bid on it and was too low. It was above what I wanted to pay but I would have been happy at that price.

I was bidding also. This went for a wee bit more than I thought it worth, or what I was willing to pay for a copy with any water damage. At 660.00 I want VG+ at the very least.
