As to the NOS stuff, it's been decades since these lenses went out of production. It's hard for me to believe that there are supplies left.

That's a viable line of thought. However, I still find NOS car part from models that most people don't even remember anymore. So it is very well possible that there are some never sold, or never used, lenses out there too. Actually not so long ago I bought a never used Jupiter 11, and for a very reasonable price at that.

Re. OPs comments of ebay going downhill: I can relate to that too. Years ago, ebay was mainly filled with small sellers with interesting vintage stuff. Now it is overtaken by bulk sellers of nobrand junk.
