Ebay's Worst Offerings

6,676 posts in this topic

good for a laugh. Besides the outrageous price of $39.99 for a battered and beaten 1983 £1, this joker actually lifted his description (including photos) straight from Chard's web-site. I did drop Chard an e-mail to let them know, don't know if they will do anything or not.

The seller allows for "Best Offers" to be submitted. I wonder if he would accept my offer of a quarter.

Coins 728x90

Now that is not funny. Some poor kid, maybe in the US will buy it thinking he's on to a winner. I wish there was some way to stop this sort of thing! :angry:

"what's wrong with these people ? "

Nothing much - if they sell to some poor sucker! I can't think of any way that they could stop this sort of thing. It's no use saying 'caveat emptor' to the ignorant! :angry:

I know most of these prats can't spell, but can't they read either? Furthermore, you'd think that if someone tried to get away with selling a "1933" penny then they might give the date a higher profile in their listing!

I despair...

Ashmore ?

I'm no expert on CNUT. How really can you tell ? If Asmore quite collectable in its own right....it will be nice to watch this to see which big guns bid..if any....watch that Geordie chap slip in with a £5 bid after putting us off the scent. ;)

Yes, it made me laugh, but I confess to thinking they were called "bum pennies" when I was a small child.

Obviously from the same numismatic kennel as the dump farthing :-)

That Cnut

Obviously someone knows more than me, but it does look remarkably 'pretty'. :rolleyes:

For a chocolate coin! But then someone obviously thinks it's worth a few bob - not my area so I have no idea if it's ok or not.

ebay is a real 'curate's egg' - you get some stinkers and some gems. I'm smiling cos I just bought two of the gems but tomorrow I might get my fingers burnt... who knows?

caveat ebayor!

Here's another good one. ebay 1/2d

I emailed drivingjames to suggest he may like to consider revising either the title or the pictures and the reply was "Why?". I despair. This one has further to run.

Title has been revised from this. Item: MARY & GEORGE 1694 HALFPENNY GVLIELMVS ERROR (8357295804) to the revised description. Any takers? - or perhaps that is a rhetorical question.
