what do you think the odds are that the CPUs > this place < is shipping would really be a DLT3C? good? $45 shipped would be an awesome price. or do you think it's one of those things where someone just got that stepping from one of the early chips or an invoice or something and it's been there on the website as a product number ever since?

i'd skip those chips, looks like risky business, pally or t-bred a...
i'd say your best chance of getting a good stepping right now is to get one at excaliberpc (you'll pay a price premium for one, but you know you'll get on), or newegg....they were selling retail 1800+ chips not too long ago that were JIXIB steppings (i know, i got one ), but it looks like they're only selling OEM's right now...still though, i don't think newegg has had anything other than tbred-b chips for quite some time now, so it's definately a better chance than the one you linked.
