    Buyer’s premium is a misnomer as it is paid by the vendor.  Vendors need to consider BP carefully to assess whether it correctly represents value added by the auction house. Buyers can be indifferent as they don’t pay it anyhows. 

    I have to disagree with this. It is possible to negotiate (sometimes to zero) the seller's premium with some auction houses, in which case the seller gets the hammer price and the auction house covers its costs through the buyer's premium (commission).

    .. And now it's been taken down by the seller due to "an error in the listing". Some error!!

    That's the second time he's taken it down - probably hoping that no-one will notice.

    This is a disgrace ,i sold the coin as an altered date on facebook and the buyer re sold as an altered date on eBay.

    Now this clown has decided to try and have someone over as genuine.

    I sold this coin to John Spring a few years ago and, when it appeared on Ebay recently I emailed the seller to tell him it was a forgery, a doctored 1853 penny.

    I believe he must have sold it to Torcoins who are now trying to sell it as genuine. Ebay should be told.
