There is another very similar Jenco celesta up on ebay right now. It has a bid of $5500 on it, which is $3500 less than that seller was asking for the last one.

I guess the celesta prices dipped since the recession, though it seems everyone else still is asking $10,000+ for used celestas.

And he put a second Jenco celesta up for sale:

And a Simone(?) celesta:

Why do you call it rare? AFAIK, it is the FIVE-octave celestas that are rare. (They do exist.)

The only rare 5-octave celestas that were well-known and rarer than Jenco celestas are Mustel 5-octave celestas. Schiedmayer 5-octave celestas are only as rare as Jenco celestas.

The first and third celestas have been sold. The second celesta has been refinished, and can be viewed here (the auction ends tomorrow!):
