I wanted to see if 750 drills were suddenly magically gonna get cheap now that I bought a 1560 on Tuesday.

They didn't. A high serial number, worn out, John Deere 750 drill on Hennessey's sale was shill bid up to 11,300, then the auctioneer said it'd take a little more and moved on. Lotta people looking at it, but I don't think they got many bids, and I know they didn't get the last few they claimed they had.
This drill would have needed at LEAST $200 per row for main bushings, press wheel bushings, gauge wheel bushings, and seed boot bushing repair kits to make it better than a broadcast spreader.

I still feel good about the 1560 I bought, even if I have to do the seed boot bushings on it.

If anyone else is looking for a no-till drill, Needham Ag seems to be the go-to place for replacement parts. They have a series of videos (with very poor sound, but the info gets through) on what to look for in a Deere no-till box drill or air seeder. And they also have videos on how to change out various parts.

Here's one of their videos on what to look for when considering a drill.

things from it.
