Although this is a nice, large candy container with fine detailing, the seller is dreaming big in starting the bidding at such a nose-bleed level. That said, the BIN price is astounding. Where does that number come from? The container is an early one given its wood base and the attention paid to the details. However, with a missing pipe and other mishaps to condition, I peg a value much closer to $600 than to $1,200.
