It's a sad statement to make however there are likely to be a lot of tools for sale due to Coronavirus related job losses. I started watching Craig's List more closely and found an Onieda Deluxe Dust Deputy 2.5", 5 Gal still sealed in the box for $25. A young college educated couple both working in management, 2 kids, living in a very nice home with 2 fairly new cars; both lost their jobs in the same week. They were selling everything that wasn't essential hoping to make it through the pandemic and get back to work.

NOTE: When I picked up this item, I wore rubber gloves, disposed of box and wiped down all of the parts with Clorox before assembling.

In times like this, for those who can afford it, you might want to think about paying a little more than "fire sale" asking price to help those harder hit by this meltdown.
Very good idea.

I didn't mention in the original post, I actually gave them a $50 bill. They wouldn't take it, so I just walked off. Still half price at $50!
