    right.
    so you find something "...at an estate sale in an old can of brass screws." ... and you just guess it's worth a grand ?
    makes perfect sense :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

    A press. What I think you meant is, you'd love to see the die, otherwise mold, it was pressed with, eh?

    Whelp, For a grand a pop just call China as, they probably chipping, cutting, carving or making the mold to cast it, as we type. Coming soon to you're countries epay, 'NOS' half price $500.

    From my town .Item was not sold for 999.00-best offer accepted -put a high price on it and accept the high offer , or place an item and accept the high offer , lots of manipulation on ebay . This thread is a good example of ,not reading the whole sale situation .Also to prosecute someone for there ebay antics does not/will not work -possibly you can be banned!!! I know lots of sellers who use different i.d. ,or a relatives information , ..Police will not pursue an ebay criminal .

    when a Best Offer is accepted ebay indicates that this happened by putting a line through the original price.
    they do not divulge the actual price.
    so... ebay indicates the item sold for $999, but you claim to know otherwise. :confused:o_O

    ...and just who is being prosecuted for their "...ebay antics" ? :confused:o_O

    It's my understanding that it's just a bunch of individual pixels, that when placed in close proximity to each other, APPEAR to be a line.

    Ah but the 'moron' is right bozo. Ebay doesn't put the line through the ended auction unless you see it through the seller's completed listings page: http://www.ebay.com/sch/mfxs50/m.html?item=112444841565&rmvSB=true&nma=true&orig_cvip=true&ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT&si=pAnIirzmQEjLndF3d3ZYMAakH5A%3D&LH_Complete=1&rt=nc&_trksid=p2046732.m1684
    And there it is, sure enough not 999 it's got a line through it, highest offer was excepted, bozo. (grin)

    Sucks that ebay use-to let you see, through the completed listings page, what the final price was, but I guess some dope seller threatened a law suite so now it's hidden.

    Must change this topic's header too: 'Some dope A.. ebay seller, thought $$, he'd hit the jackpot!'
