A gold iPhone 5s—hold on...time out for a facepalm—OK, a gold iPhone 5s sold on Ebay today for US$10,100. It was a 16GB model, too, the smallest of the iPhone 5s models, but it is unlocked.

It's always hard to tell if this sort of thing is legit. That said, the seller appears legit, with 1,278 feedback points, 100 percent of which are positive (which is impressive). It's quite common for people to buy iPhones that are in short supply to sell them on Ebay, but they don't often go for $10K.

This auction had 51 bids. Many of the bidders were new to Ebay, but not all of them. Several have bid histories of 200 auctions, and the winning bidder (a sniper) had 225 feedback points with 98 percent positive feedback.

The question is whether or not that will be bumped up to 226. There will be a happy seller if he or she does.

Thanks to user bigmoof on reddit for the heads up.
