Default Maytag Engines... built of Gold?

I ve been off here for a bit and into cars for a while. I came back on here and got some badly needed info.
I was on ebay a few months ago and noticed that apparently Mr Maytag was producing some Model 92 engines from precious metals and the price has risen into the hundreds of dollars. REALLY....???
Makes me think the collectors are gone and the hustlers took over. Opinions?? I have a dozen of them... paid upwards of 35 dollars for one of them. Most came out the the scrap yard for almost nothing.
I sort of thought this was a hobby where you took salvageable engines and made them run again for showing off. Looks like that may have went down the tubes.
