I've seen them go for $1500 plus.

That seems about right to me. My 2B has a 2C high speed movement in it, came with one mag, a variable speed motor, and no lenses. I paid $1200 for it and have about quadrupled that with Cooke SPII/III lenses, Tobin motor, Ultracam mattebox, extra mags, etc. I feel I'm still at a pretty good price point since most everything is at least at the minimum professional quality used for serious 35mm work.

I have an ARRI 35, an early wartime one, came with a 1 foot tall guy called Gunter Metzger.

You know, it's too bad the Arri 2C/T B(techniscope)isn't in circulation because I have been looking for one for a long time. Oh well, a guy can dream.
