I am looking for input on identifying the actual letters used in this seal or its original paper wrapper. Due to their elaborate nature the opinions so far have differed.

 

The wrapping paper, which I've provided two 180 degree opposing views, shows how the the seal's impression will actual appear while looking directly at the seal face on provides a horizontally reversed image of how it will actually appear.

I have a heavy bronze vase that has an inscription on the inside bottom, but I am not sure if it is of Chinese or Japanese origin to even begin to identify it. Any help with it will be greatly appreciated! Thank you. Katie

I obtained at an estate auction a large set of matching barware:  champagnes in 2 sizes and old fashioned glasses.  I have struck out searching to ID;  anyone recognize them?  (I am guessing they are 1970s but could be totally wrong).   Thanks to all of you who read this!  :smileyhappy:IMG_9194.JPGIMG_9195.JPGIMG_9198.JPGIMG_9196.JPG

IT'S IN THE NEWS...

i picked up this nifty Boucher 6748 bracelet today, gold tone with some of the raised areas looking silvery.   I found one at a non-ebay site and they say it is gold plated but show no mark. 

 

The silvery areas really do look like loss to the gold plate  so I can believe it is plated, just wanted to make sure before I list it.

This has me stumped but learn everyday I think the pin and clasp has been replaced but the brooch is silver I think. This belongs to a older gentleman and his wife passed and I am trying to help him sell some things to make some $$ for him. Any info is appreciated as I google and get all kinds of things mainly cameos. It has some damage one corner is chipped other is cracked and 3 stones missing but I think I have some to replace them. With that being said I still like it but that doesnt matter think it is worth listing with the damage? There is no marks on it I cleaned it a little but found nothing

Reversed carved glass brooch age?

I am assuming this is for a watch. The  chain o the band is to attach watch so it does not get lost. The band stretches and as seen in the photos the top area moves when pinched ...possible for an oval watch if need be or something maybe a locket? Hoping others have directional help and/or known what this is called to help me with additional searching.

Does this look like ivory?

I've had sash buckles before, usually with a pin mechanism but this one has me stumped.
Is there another part missing that would have clipped onto the rotating buckle part ?
This is large at 4+1/4" x 2+1/4" and because of the curvature of the design and prong placement I'm guessing M'lady would have worn this vertically instead of horizontally ?
I just can't figure out how the sash would have been used with this buckle.

Hello again! I have some wonderful old jewelry lately, so come here for H E L P! :smileyhappy: I belive this is a genuine JET Victorian Brooch. The long pin bar and simple c clasp tell me it's possibly 1800's? Is this a Mourning Pin? And are those marcasite beads? It almost looks like buttons made into a brooch? And there is repair on the back. Very lightweight piece. What is French Jet, by the way? And is this worth listing? So confusing! :smileyhappy:

Ok, so this is a nice long strand of what feels like glass beads (tap like glass, moderate weight and cold to touch) individually knotted, no clasp. The color reminds me of butter. I've found what they call lemon jade, but nothing else has come close. Any ideas on the beads?  For some reason, I get the vibe that these are not run of the mill...but wthdik? TIA!!!

These bottles appear to be cased, but the inside is fairly thin, more like white satin enamel painted inside than an actual glass layer. Would you dIMG_1427.JPGescribe this as cased, or as something else?

Any thoughts on origins or maker? In my searches, I'm coming up with results all over the place. I thought they were pretty. And my first thought was Victorian. But now I'm wondering if they're Czech.

Thoughts?

This is the first time I've picked up glass with this optic. It looks like a fishscale to me, and has a dot or bullseye in the middle. You can feel the fischscale on the outside, although not as well as on the inside. I'm trying to search online to get some ideas of possible maker, era, how to describe, etc. I'm coming up empty. How would you describe this? Any thoughts on how to search? Possible makers?

Hello davidnichols2015,

After reviewing your eBay account, it appears that you haven't followed our Direct Sales policy. A list of the items we're concerned about is available further down in this email.

We realize you may not have been aware of these guidelines, so we haven't removed any listings, or taken any other action on your account. Instead, we want to provide you with this information so you can thoroughly review your listings and make sure they follow our guidelines.  

Please understand that you mentioned "THERE IS A BUY IT NOW ON THE RADIO OR YOU CAN MAKE A REASONABLE OFFER" in the listing description which may lead to off eBay sale. Sellers are not allowed to sell items directly to buyers off eBay. The eBay listing page is to sell items through the eBay site. Sellers are not permitted to advertise their own off-eBay businesses in their listings, nor are they permitted to list an item on the site and seek to sell it, or more quantities of it, off eBay. Items that are sold off eBay do not have the advantage of full trade protection services since there is no record of a transaction through eBay. Please be careful while you list your items in future so that they are in accordance with ebay policies. We've observed that this is the first time you breached eBay policy; please take some time to read our help pages. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Offering additional items for sale outside of eBay isn't allowed. It is also not allowed to require purchases in addition to the item you are offering.

These practices are considered a way of avoiding eBay fees. Listings that try to avoid fees put sellers who pay their fees at a disadvantage. Also, they can create a poor buying experience. Buyers may mistakenly think that they are covered by eBay's buyer protection and feedback services when making these additional purchases.

To learn more about our avoiding eBay fees policy, please go to:
http://pages.ebay.com/help/policies/listing-circumventing.html

Please make sure that your current and future listings follow these guidelines. If they don't, they'll be removed and your fees won't be refunded. It could also result in additional actions, including loss of buying and selling privileges on eBay.

Hello P&G forums, I see tons of cut glass and this one caught my eye. I would like to properly ID it before listing if possible. Is this ABP glass? It doesn't have the sawtooth edge that I usually see. I really wish there was a makers mark, but sadly there are only some numbers. I would like help with the age/pattern/maker if possible. Thanks

I purchased a camera lens and the wrong lens was sent. I requested a return but eBay closed the case saying that the seller did not offer refunds. Clearly the wrong lens was sent, I verified this with the local camera shop. This was advertised as a Nikon mount Sigma lens but is a Sony mount lens. I took pictures of the lens on a Sony camera ans sent them to the seller. Still refuses to refund. Seller says in communication that "If this had been our mistake we would gladly issue a refund for the item and for shipping." Hate to resort to Negative Feedback. Impossible to communicate with eBay once a case is closed.Displaying photo.JPG

Dear rickgitrs,

Hey Rick... for some reason, I don't see that tab or option on my end. Since the case is already closed, the only option it gives me is to relist the item, but I can't see where I can void it? Let me know... I'd be glad to help, I just can't see the option.
thanks.

Dear 1958giraffe,

I had talk to Ebay they said that if you went on to the resolution center and clicked on that case and went all the way over to the right you can cancel or void the item if you could do that that would be so great thank you so much for your time and consideration

I really apologize for the delay you're more than patient thank you so much

Thanks in advance. My crackle glass resources are limited. I went through Weitmans' Book 2 with no luck and also the Blenko Project website. For all I know it's cheap Mexican glass -- I seem to have no clue about the difference between that and nice American crackle -- but, well, I'd like to know anyway.  :smileyindifferent:  It's 8 1/4" tall with an unpolished pontil.

How many people have had the experience of a bait and switch wit an Italian company selling Darious vertical wind turbines? I won a bid on eBay for a complete wind turbine and was sent the blades and aluminum struts missing the actual generator which makes the wind turbine work. I sent photos to the company of the item I bid on and the Item I received and they told me that I had purchase something totally different. My correspondence with the company went back and fourth. When I finally tried to get eBay to help me they refused to do anything about my dispute. I now am the proud Owner of a wind turbine that doesn't produce energy. Has anyone else had this problem? Below is what I was suposed to have purchased. The second photo is what I received.

I have a pair of Diorly sunglasses like the picture below. They are in perfect condition execpt for the plastic ends that go on your ears. I'd like to replace the plastic ends and make them perfect again before selling them. Do these plastic ends have a name, because knowing what they are called would help me find them. And if anyone could steer me in the right direction to look for them that would be really great. I'm sorry if this is a dumb question but I'm a dumb guy who knows almost nothing about CSA.

global shipping program not working anymore

I've been a eBay user for years, I've had more problems with sellers lately then ever. I bought an iPhone 5c paid promptly, the seller totally dragged their feet on shipping I tried contacting them asking what's going on. I get a nasty message from the seller threatening me that because of my previous message they don't feel comfortable sending me the phone!?!?!?!? I called eBay and told them what happened they sent this bipolar seller a cancelation request. I haven't been a seller in years but what happens if the seller doesn't respond and eBay refunds me? Does eBay do anything about crazy sellers?

Vindictive seller

As all of you know, eBay has updated their policies in an extreme way. I feel that it has made it much more difficult and expensive for individual sellers now. (I think they are trying to make eBay more like Amazon, with things for sale from big vendors and people who do eBay stores as a living, but that's a different discussion for a different day.) I am trying to find another website to start selling on that is very user-friendly for sellers, without huge fees and selling limits. I have been looking at Bonanza, but am having a bit of difficulty understanding it. Does anyone have any feedback about other auction websites (besides Etsy) to sell on that won't break the bank? I just can't afford to sell on eBay now. (Not willing to pay for a store subscription on eBay, not willing to risk paying to list not knowing if something will sell or not - you can't always guarantee someone looking for that specific item is going to be online at that specific time.) I need the extra income and Ebay used to be really great for that, but cutting my free listings by 60% and getting rid of my ability to relist without paying really hurts my wallet. Any ideas, ya'll?

Selling discussion

I'm getting a little sick of buyers not reading my descriptions that say "DO NOT MAKE A PAYMENT UNTIL I SEND AN INVOICE" (and eBay TOLD me to do that when I talked to their repreaentatives) because a majority of the time, the shipping calculator doesn't estimate the proper amount, or estimates for the wrong type of postage, and then the buyer gets mad at ME because THEY didn't read. Then I refund them and send the invoice when I have the correct shipping amount. On their end it says they've already paid. How hard is it for them to have a properly working system in place? PayPal and eBay are currently the same company, so why are the two sites not talking to each other?! I'm getting so frustrated that I'm debating on not using eBay for selling anymore.

Almost every other customer I have had has not read the description, and got mad at me for their incompetence.

There should be a check box that says "buyer pays for shipping, estimate to come at time of purchase" because I'm sick of this.

Invoices - Angry Venting

I recently purchased a Sega Genesis Console from an inexperienced seller. Its not uncommon to find sellers with little feedback selling old game consoles. Usually a mom who is cleaning out the attic and trying to get rid of her now grownup kids old stuff. The packaging was horrible to say the least, but that's not the frustrating part. The frustrating part is that the console didn't work. I thought maybe it was the cable because I wasn't getting a signal from the console to the TV. So I purchased a new cable. I immediately contacted the seller and she was apologetic and told me she would refund me my money. I told her that I would wait to see if the new cable fixed the problem. Well when it arrived a week and a half later, it didn't fix the problem. Still not getting a signal to the TV. I contacted the seller on Tuesday of this week offering to work out a deal. Maybe a partial refund so I can try and sell the console for parts or repair. In the end I would probably lose money in this deal, but I didn't want to overwhelm her and make her have to pay for return shipping. I didn't hear back from her and so I sent her another message this morning. Haven't heard back yet. So I'm getting a bit frustrated. I don't want to open a SNAD case, but I may have no choice. Other than continuing to wait patiently for her answer, are there any other options available to me? All I was asking for was a partial refund of $8 from a total payment of $32.80. Even if I sell the broken console, I'm going to lose money. I could try and get the whole amount back, but I'm just not that kind of buyer.

Patient but Frustrated

I have a US buyer who won an auction a month ago.  After they won the auction they contacted me and said that "for security reasons" they couldn't pay through Paypal and they asked me to cancel the transaction.  So I issued the "buyer requested" cancellation and they approved it.  Then I archived the transaction, relisted the item and forgot about it.

 

This morning I noticed an email from Paypal that said I have an eCheck payment that cleared.  Since I didn't have any items awaiting a eCheck I took a closer look.  I confirmed that my Paypal account has the money.  And I confirmed that the payment is for this cancelled Ebay transaction. Ebay doesn't show that the buyer has paid but when un-archived the transaction went into the "Awaiting Shipment" folder.  

 

I sent the buyer a note in Ebay asking them to confirm that they made the payment and haven't gotten a response.

 

The buyer is in the US, has 4500 feedback and 400 transactions in the last month.  So they are very active.  He seems like a great customer.  But I don't understand why Ebay would allow a buyer to pay for a cancelled transaction and I'm concerned that if I ship the item the buyer will request a refund through Paypal and get their money back because the trasaction is cancelled.

 

So I'm thinking about refunding the buyers money and asking them to buy the item again.

 

Thoughts?

I recently won a bid of a quite expensive camera on ebay. The seller said he was on a business trip so he gave me a incorrect tracking number which has been sent to another guy in my city. The seller said he's going to send me the camera later, but it's been a week though. I didn't recieved any package even a reply from the seller. I've got all the contact record with the seller and tracking info detail from UPS to prove the package hasn't been sent to my personal address.(not even from the seller.) Could anybody help me getting the money back? I tried to do the online service process on ebay but it won't give me an option that fits my situation!!!

Didn't receive good worth 5 grands !!!

A buyer bid on my auction for a not-working for part only lot of two laptops. I checked the buyers feedback and he left a neg and recieved a refund from ebay for another seller who sold a similar item. I looked at that itemsauction and I can't see how he could have misrepresented it, it was an old noteboo that doesn't work sold for parts only and clearly stated so in the very brief description he had with very few detales other than that. Am I allowed to or justified in cancelling this buyers bid? It looks like that is the only neg he ever left and it's the only time he bought something for prts only. Everything else he purchases is new stuff. He also sells.

 

My inclination is to not cancel his bid unless he wins. I don't want to go through a return drama for this stuff.

I picked up this heavy clay planter as it attracted me.  But I am ignorant about pottery and the seller didn't know anything about where this came from.  Does anyone have any ideas as to when/who/where this was made?  Its fairly heavy, stands about 7 inches tall and about 9" diameter across the widest point. The clay has a pinkish reddish cast.  The top fourth of the piece is black or dark brown around the whole piece. The remaining 3/4 has splashes of reds and yellows mixed in with the dark color. There's no signature or makers mark that I can find.  Thank you to all you knowledgable potties for your time and effort.

I have a question. I have listed an item three times, each time I have had a scammer try to purchase the item. They all have the same address, which is my first red flag. The second time I chose to cancel the transaction as soon as the buyer demanded I send the item without him paying first. I contacted ebay because he had horrible reviews. I was refunded my final fees and was able to relist that day. Now, again I have another scammer. Has not paid and has the same name and address as the previous two scammers. I canceled the transaction again, but now that I think of it, the associate with ebay told me not to cancel transactions because I may not get my final fees back. If money was never exchanged and the address can be proven as false is there as way to get the fees credited? I hate to call the customer service center again. I don't want to seem like I am the scammer. I don't sell on here often, and don't really know what to do.
