In the Sedo weekly sales report it seems a lot of names that should fetch a price far greater than $1277 sold this week.
As astutely pointed out in the comments by Dan, Jose and Todd there seems to be something odd here.
Thighs, Their, Byline, Broth, Chose, Monologue, Gaiters, Chard, Succubus, Saviour, and Trying all bought for $1,277 each all by the same person. They were sold by the the same owner Virginia Comito. She was featured in Beta Beat back in 2011
Virginia Comito, d.b.a. V.L. Raymer, is a California-based domain investor who bought occupy.com in 1998. Now, she’s selling it to the one percent.
Other names for $1277 include cleanser.com which VL Raymer was the registrant up til August of 2012 when the name went under privacy. 12/3/12 it was now under a new registrant “New Ventures Services” NVS is affiliated with Network Solutions.
The same pattern for Bitt.com which was once owned by VL Raymer at one time then went through a bunch of changes that included “New Venture Services” to Hot Media to One Ventures out of Belize.
There was a mention of an obit of a Virginia Comito who was 77 from Edison, New Jersey.
Virginia Comito the domainer looks to be out of California, here is a link to a UDRP that involved her and her domain Tonsil.com, She did lose the name as the panel found:
The Panel decides that:
1) the domain name tonsil.com is confusingly similar to the trademark “Tonsil”;
2) Ms. Comito has no rights or legitimate interest in respect of the domain name tonsil.com;
3) the domain name tonsil.com has been used in bad faith by Ms. Comito.
Pursuant to paragraph 4(i) of the Policy and pursuant to paragraph 15 of the Rules, the Panel requires that the Registrar, Network Solutions, Inc., transfer the name tonsil.com to the Complainant.
Comito under the name VL Raymer did win $30,000 in the Primp.com counterfeit case.

So there could be something else at work here with all these sales at $1,277 we will update the story. A phone call to the number listed in whois went to an automated voicemail with no name just for the number.
