Fair price on used Rogue plates

I found a craigslist seller selling 240 pounds of like new Rogue machined olympic plates. He posted for 375$. They have barely been used at all. I offered him 200$ and he told me to screw off. What is a fair price to offer on Rogue machined plates? Cheap plates go for $0.50/lb in my area.
