thx, Al! :lol:



Spotted the print immediately the auction went up (and not from the box 'evidence'), just before Steven 'spiked' the auction: see below, repeated from post last year, compared with the auction).



Question is whether the books are possibly a 'middle' release, rather than 'early'.

If there wasn't that research possibility or it was clear they were 'late' (U&WA variant, below, but that applies to the other books too in color/size, if not setting), I wouldn't have gone that far over the 'box value' - and still presuming no splits!

Sheesh, that was more $ than either the unpublished Kalibruhn supplement ms. or ERK... (*cough*)



Image

Even with those possibilities, I think that's more likely one for the 'silliest price' thread.



Will be looking forward to this! :)

But I may have had it wrong as I forgot that post total # changes in all of your posts when a new post is made.

:D  :D


Aside: if anyone has been trying to do a deal privately with the seller for these, please drop it.



I had an o/s query with them because the shipping quote was way too low ($15!), did not receive a response and they tried to cancel the transaction as 'unwanted' after one working day.

They're now making up a story about having sent me the detailed photos (untrue-- and contrary to after auction end when they told me they'd never received my original eBay query) and telling me I emailed them to cancel the transaction (untrue, yet again).

Has been paid via PayPal, regardless of this crap, and looking forward to hearing back from them (no word yet)... :?



I trust your assessment of their chacter is correct,  Steven, and that there's just been a 'misunderstanding' in there, somewhere?

Thanks, Al.
Yeah, didn't want to post here (hopefully pre-emptively), but was only going to give them a few hours to reply after that volte-face and strange behavior...

*pops over to other PC to clip emails*

after auction end they wrote;
Sorry, I missed your email. Shipping air, insured will be $15.00. Thank you for your purchase.

(sheesh, silly me for actually adding that extra $5 on the payment today for insurance, then!)

then, earlier today;
David:  I had sent you extra photos and the same extra info the bidder you speak of received. I see you get some of my emails and not others.  I am sorry you changed your mind on purchase. Thank you for lettting me know. Robin.

and from eBay;
The seller, fokibo tells us you have mutually agreed not to complete the transaction (e.g. because you returned or are returning the item for a refund or because there was a misunderstanding) and has requested a credit for their eBay fees.

David, do you think that someone is intentioanlly trying to interfere with your win?? Sure seems like it to me. :evil:   It almost seems like someone is trying to act like they are you (perhaps using a very similar email address or some sort) and now trying to say that you dont want it.  Something very fishy is going on here and it is starting to piss me off.
