So, even if she "gives it away" for $1500, this is not within panart policy. They take no account for the following which add to the overall ownership cost: shipping, insurance, inflation, travel to get it, currency exchange, etc. They did in fact deny a retune to someone who paid 1500 Euro for a 1st gen Hang because it was "500% profit from original price". 1500 Euro is a give-away price, so the policy is really not a policy but an statement of idealistic frustration and an imposed (attempted) control of the marketplace.
As far as what it will likely bring: if a sufficient video is provided for a legitimate sale without sketchy details (like I am travelling during the auction, etc), and the Hang is in balanced tune with itself, then it will likely fetch $4000 or more.
