Merckx frame w/ top tube dent

Just wondering about your thoughts on this frame on Ebay..

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=170300054143

What do you think of the dent? It's kinda hard for me to tell (perhaps on purpose??) how much of a dent it is.

What's your suggested Mac bid?

Thanks..

Looking at Ebay completed listings:

NOS (new old stock) are going for $800-850
Used are going from $350-$1,000. Eliminate the high and low and used Merckz framesets are bringing ~$400.

I could live that dent, it was caused by the handlebars (what else could it be) hitting the TT.

how much is it worth with the dent? I dont know, $250 plus shipping?
