I enhanced a York EEb front action from 3 to 4 + 1 (with a convincing factory appearance and marvelous playing characteristics) and sold it to a retired widower in Columbus. I had advertised it (actually as a joke) at what I thought was a ridiculous price, and the gentleman bought it "sight unseen" because he had seen some of my work, before. I put him off for months, thinking that he would forget about it. As he persisted, I felt obligated to honor his order, because he indeed "called my bluff".
Speaking of "collectable", I would like to "collect" that one back into my "collection. I miss it.
