Originally listed at auction starting at $8.50, seller cancelled three of four bids in the mid $20s to end the auction. Relisted it at $110, which was the highest private bid received in emails.

Sold at $110 on 2016-04-24.

I noticed this last one has rubber feet on it.  When did 5302s come out with such feet?

5302s were refurbished sets made from 302 bases.  So when the feet needed replacement they got what ever was current at the time.
The triangular Neoprene feet were introduced in 1958, first on the 500-series sets.
5302s were assembled from ca. Aug. 1955 to ca. 1964/5.
