Around my area steel bed frames go for around $10-30. depending on condition and Chests of drawers for around $150-250. $2,500 seems too high. Perhaps your $3,000 comparable was brass, older, full sized, real wood, rare style, or by a well known designer...also did it SELL or was it just listed?
I'm not an appraiser, so I could be off in my evaluation.
It would help too if you cleaned it up. Looks pretty beat up to me. Sometimes a few drips of furniture wax (I know it's not wood) will make it sparkle.
