I picked this up forum another forum but it bears repeating. A guy from the US is selling a stamp - opening bid $450. I haven't pictured it as it is nothing to do with Machins and it may well be worth it. It 's the generic statement he puts in his listings that is interesting.

Some items may be replaced for more expensive items in the event that the item had been previously sold prior to the item being listed and was an error on our part - Stamp I.D'S are not 100% and but pretty close
.
So you spend $450 (minimum) on a particular stamp that you are looking for and his ToC's allow him to send anything he wants .... right ... oh and the stamp he is selling at this price is not 100% ID'ed.

Sounds like the sort of seller I'd use ............... not.

Still - brightens up an otherwise dull day ..... back to my 1st Class Golds I think.

Please tell me this guy is not from the states.

I was thinking that he may have been, as they say, in-artful, in his attempt to explain some idea he has.

Okay, I bit and sent this question to Fred Lar;
Could you explain what you mean by this comment;
" ... Some items may be replaced for more expensive items in the event that the item had been previously sold prior to the item being listed and was an error on our part - Stamp I.D'S are not 100% and but pretty close..."

From the words it seems like he means that if somehow he list something that he already sold, he will send the winning bidder something of greater value.

Looking over his sales items he seems to be handling a lot of cinderella material including what he calls "Global World Cinderella" items which at least one unhappy customer described as a copy machine fake, but the seller maintains it is a genuine Global World Cinderella.However he does have an overwhelming majority of satisfied customers according to his feedback page.

Cinderellas are not my area of expertise.
