Quote from: LarryInMichigan on June 23, 2013, 02:33:57 PMI feel bad for whoever bid $136.99 for an item worth at most $30.
Quote from: poplar1 on June 23, 2013, 03:16:52 PMThe bidder has a feedback of 3, so he may not know it's a fake.
Quote from: poplar1 on June 23, 2013, 03:16:52 PMI'd still like to know who "officially advised" the seller that it "dates back to the 1940s."
