MNH, opened for $5.50 and closed with no bids.  The seller made the rather optimistic statement "The market for Russian stamps became so hot it will be really hard very soon to obtain any Russian stamps in good condition."  Hmmm.  :)  Scott values at $8 (Nov 00).

S 1860 This stamp commemmorates the 148th birthday of Makhmud Aivazov, who was claimed to be Russia's oldest man at the time.  He was an Azerbaijani farmer.  Subsequently it was revealed as nonsense and his age was nothing like what he claimed it to be.

eBay Type II, Mint but doesn't specify hinging.  Opened for $4 and sold at that price.  Scott values at $5.

S 1860a This is the Type I stamp which Scott numbers as 1860a (get it - Type II is 1860 and Type I is 1860a - doesn't really make sense, does it!).

MNH, opened for $1 and three bidders took up to $5.50.  Scott values at $20 (Nov 00).

MLH, opened for $4 and two bidders took up to $6 (Jul 01).
