Just tested a copy of this lens, and it was horribly decentered.
I would never buy one without testing it first, or without the option to return it.

It an put of production lens, no longer supported by Canon - I think that would apply to any lens, and not specifically this one...

where did you test the lens out? at a local camera store selling it?

Bought the lens at reputable store and tested carefully for a few days.

Lens was clearly decentered.

I am not a collector, and since I can get a new Zeiss Otus 55/1.4 for the same (or lower) price, I decided to skip.

Price out of curiosity? Maybe they would cut the price is it has that obvious issue.
Perhap a third party could fix or repair it, since it has no Canon warranty obviously.

$3800. Not sure if the lens can be fixed. It has 11 elements (one of which is floating) and the fact some of them are decentered may mean the lens has been dropped. Besides, tolerances at f/1 are critical and I believe you need ultra high precision tools for realignment and calibration.
