...considering a brand new one being advertised on eBay for $1500. They suddenly like all 10 disappeared so suspect it was a a scam.
Would have been a scam or a listing error Simon.

A Robur Doser model ranges in price from $2200 to $3400 depending on who you buy it from.

The doser models are not as popular as the doserless and seem to be discounted much more.

A Kony ranges in price from $1400 to $2200 for the Doser model.

Big differences.

I suspect a lot of Robur models are available due to not only their popularity but the new Mazzer Kold model. This is how I got mine cheap.

Mazer Kold has not exactly set the world on fire since its launch a couple of years ago, so i really doubt it's materially affecting the price of Roburs as such.

Own 3 Kolds and had a couple of high volume Cafes reject them after a while........but in that segment it's more about the competition from other brands, particularly the Mythios and of course baristas blaming their tools and being snowflakes.

3rd party burrs have in the past, and I'm referring to a period as recent as 12 months ago, caused too many problems. I simply won't touch them.

Or maybe I'm just cursed.

You may well be right but Mazzer Robur burrs definitely went through a bad period. These burrs should take minimal bedding in.
