It appears to be a great deal but notice the ENTIRE neck is non-original. The instrument looks good and is probably worth the price if there are no other issues - but don't think this is a steal on a "collectible" 1921 Snakehead. my $0.02

Didn't snakeheads come into being in '23? No '21's in the archive.

Missed the forest through the trees!
Good point - but since its a new neck that would make sense... I guess.

Righto ... if it were a real snakehead, either squirrelabama or I would be driving home with it already...

It looks nice, but it wasn't originally made with a snakehead, and the inside isn't carved like a snakehead (so don't expect snakehead tone, though it may sound great). As is, the asking price is probably what the seller has invested, but it's more than what all original pre-Loar A2s tend to go for.
