$5,100 for a used 2009 2x2.26GHz Mac Pro?

I recently started a watch list of Mac Pro available on eBay to get some idea of the going prices of 2009/2010 models. Then I stumbled on this completed transaction. If I remember correctly, the seller had a Buy It Now price for $1695. Instead the winning bid ended up at $5100. I know sometimes people overpaid in the heat of a bidding process, but this is just crazy for a 2009 machine. Can someone explain what's going on with this transaction?

It's obviously not legitimate given that they didn't cost $5100 in 2009.

Never mind that... This configuration was the worst of the lot... It's not worth it's weight in aluminum.

It was, but not now you can get them for $1500-$1700 and two W5580s for $600. Better than anything but a 12-core.
