In case anyone is interested an Amp used and signed by The Cure during the Sydney Opera House Disintegration shows is on eBay, with proceeds going to charity:

Only 8hrs to go, I'm amazed the bidding price is so low! AU$686 which is around €400.
Considering it was used by The Cure during the final (recorded) night of the Disintegration show (going by the photos I believe it was used by Simon), signed by all the band, and seems to be a working amp that likely would sell close to that price when new ... this price seems to be extremely low
Perhaps it's the potential freight costs that are putting people off (as it weighs >30kg).
