The two emerald green AE 34s are the same phone, even though the listed sellers are supposedly in Texas and Washington. The second buyer never received the phone but was able to get a refund.

Just a note on this particular auction. The seller"18647horse" apparently didn't come through, and the buyer got his money back after filling with Ebay/PayPal. Potential buyers beware of this.
Looks like a scam or the seller's account was 'jacked. Here is the same phone which sold a month earlier

This AE 34 just sold for $530 on November 19th, 2017. It may be the AE Maroon colour though I am not certain. I have only seen an AE phone in this colour once before. Of course the non matching handset negatively impacted the price of this one.
