I was just paging through a couple of Machin offerings on Delcampe (not much there to be honest) but I did come across this from their Prestige Auctions section.

Call me old fashioned but this looks like a bit of an idiotic rip off to me. The advert:

1970 - 2000, Spezialsammlung "MACHIN - Markenheftchen, ca. 230 überwiegend verschiedene Markenheftchen mit Machin Marken mit Besonderheiten, KW n.A.d.E. über 3.000,--, hoher Nominalwert, eine Aufstellung mit Mi.Nummern liegt anbei. (D)

Starting price : 350.00 € ± £285.11

Google Translate : 1970 - 2000, special collection "MACHIN - Booklets, about 230 mostly different stamp booklets with Machin stamps with special features, KW Nade over 3,000, -, high face value, a list with Mi.Nummern is attached. - I could find NO list.

That's it .. no image, no real description, no list that i could find.. I know it is in German and my understanding is limited but I would want bit more than this to open the bidding at 350€. So that's the idiotic bit.

However that isn't the rip off part ... there is also this comment lower down.
Don't forget that the auction house will add a cost of 22.00% to the final price.

22% ... Unbelievable .... Have we finished yet .. oh no ... As an EU bidder there is also this to add on.....

Regular taxation, not under margin system (+19% VAT)

That is some costly item ... by the time you have finished .... whatever the item is of course.

I assume there will also be some sort of Delivery charge(can't find any information on this) that will probably take the total to double whatever your bid is Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes

Happy to correct any information if Sebastian wants to comment?
