Snagged a photo of Alan Freed today at a pre-shop. The verso is signed by Freed and somebody else. To me the first name sort of looks like Chuck. Any ideas?

Help with autograph

Happy Friday All, this is driving me crazy and I've had the best luck, asking and learning about books, in this forum than anywhere else.  So here goes: 

 

NEW ORLEANS by Bethany Ewald Bultman, Photographs by Richard Sexton, Compass American Guides, 1994

 

I bought this book years ago for my first trip to New Orleans.  Just for the heck of it, before tossing in my thrift store pile I looked it up on Abebooks.  Lots of copies there but they were all paperback versions.  I have looked everywhere and cannot find a hard cover verison anywhere.  So, does that mean the hard cover version is rare?  Just because it is rare does not, necessarily make it desirable? 

 

What are your thoughts?  Thank you for looking!

Are there shill bidding bots?

My husband's wedding band is broken...again. He's on band #2. They cost around $60 with inscription and everything. Should I try to have it repaired (we've got a local jewler who I can take it too) or just buy him a new one? I thought about getting him a new one for Christmas and a chain so he can wear it around his neck, but he doesn't like necklaces. Sigh...

 

He basically cracks it while he's laying gas line (natural/propane).  Altho 'laying' isn't the word I'd use, I'd use installing becuase it's all over his head and he's screwing together 20ft section with huge pipe wrenches (those wrenches are what's cracking and then breaking his ring). It doesn't help that he is left-handed and so that's the hand that gets the most pressure with the wrenches. 

 

I try to remind him to take it off, but he can't remember.

 

This is a picture of my ring, which is exaclty like his (only not broken and 3 sizes smaller, lol) I bought this style so they wouldn't bend because sterling tends to bend on my finger (if it's thin enough) and go flat on one side. I did talk to him about getting a bendier one, and he said no, he'd rather it break then bend and smash on his finger. I agreed that would be better, for his finger anyway, lol

T&Co 1837 Ring

CIMG2201.JPG

Antique & Vintage Jewelry by Design

A buyer purhcased a burberry rain coat that I described at Navy, she claims it is black. Its definitely not black, but I undrstand that it is somewhat ambiguous, and it is a very dark and cool navy tone. I sent her a photo of myself wearing the coat with a black dress where you can clearly see the color. She didn't care, says it looks black compared to her navy coat. I also sent a link to a similar burberry coat on sale that is the same color and described as "steel blue". I don't accept returns and do not want to pay return shipping and accept fault when there is none. I believe people can have major differences of opinion when it comes to color, but I also believe I that if she held the coat to something black she would not be able to deny that it is a very dark blue. I sent her the link and image of this other coat on net-a-porter and she just said she refused to look at it and that the coat is black.

 

What do I do? I don't know how ebay deals with these kind of claims.

Can anyone help me identify the name on this piece? It looks like Martin Calley or Martin Calleji but nothing comes up under those.

Also, it is a limited edition (57 or 67 of 275), but I'm not sure of what; the art work has a texture to it - not smooth like a print or lithograph. Can anyone tell me what this is with just a photo?

 

Maybe the artist isn't known & that's why the name isn't coming up (but I hope they are!), but I like it - to me it looks like a peasant or farmer son and mother trying to escaping rebels in their Central or South American country - the artist captured the scared/furtive look in their eyes.

(and if you see something else I won't argue - I know my imagination runs off!).

Thanks - I appreciate any help.

Art Glass Signature Help

I cannot find anything like this.  I sometimes come across items made of thin glass, but nothing resembling this pitcher.  It has what I guess is a drip glaze on it, but that is very thin also.  I was only able to find any texture to the glaze in two small areas and that is slight.  There is one very small bubble mark on it.  It stands about 3.5" tall and is about 3 1/8" in diameter.  Of course it is very fragile and decorative as there is no opening in the spout.  Not sure if there was once a top to it.  Thanks in advance for any answers, help or leads.

Any thoughts on heavy cut glass vase.

I've figured out that it is Gorham Pat. 1897 Strasbourg with the old marks (I think)

Gorham Strasbourg Pat 1897.jpg

 

The fork has the "R" on it so that means "Regular" weight?

Gorham Strasbourg Pat 1897 Close.jpg

 

I have 8 identical place settings, plus the servingware collection. All of the pieces have the single word "Sterling", not "Gorham Sterling" in addition to the marks visible on the fork.

Gorham Pat. 1897 Strasbourg Serving.jpg

 

Can a date of manufacture be determined, or is that not relevant? 

 

The weight in grams matches what iI believe is the earliest manufacturing, around the turn of century. Is there anything else I should know about this in order to properly ID and list to sell?

 

Any help will be truly appreciated! Thank you!

Hello,

 

My wife and I are hoping that someone has seen these miniature sterling silver military men. They look like a british or french artillery team minus one guy. The soldiers are approx 1" tall and all are marked with the word "sterling". The cannon has the same patina as the men but I can not see the word sterling on it.

Needing information on pottery vase

My cousin gave me some things to sell for her. I don't know if this teapot is considered home & garden or collectibles.

 

She bought it at a little shop near her house. She never put tea in it so it isn't stained. The bottom has the latest markings for the name and has a J 4 inscribed in it.

 

The teapot has a yellow background with all over pattern roses. So does that make it a Chintz?

 

The lid fits nicely but it has a pink background. I don't believe it was originally sold that way. Can anyone tell me if they have seen the top a different color than the body of the teapot.

 

I don't know anything about these so I don't have any keywords or idea how to describe it. Not sure what kind of flowers are on it.

 

thanks in advance for your help!:smileyhappy:IMG_3932.JPG

Arthur Wood & Sons teapot ID and info

Found it in a box with a NIKKROMAT FT3 & lenses.

 

The hole is about 1 5/16" in diameter. Made of metal.  When you push the knob down & twist 1/4 turn, little "wings" come out as shown.

What the heck is it?

I need a gas cap for a Town Car and just came across this. No need to unscrew it, just shove in the nozzle and fill up. Seals shut when you remove it. No lost cap if yours doesn't have a teather and you forget it when you leave it on the roof. Thoughts?

Hi everyone, 

I am just about at the end of my rope. I bought an DYMO 4XL label printer to speed up my holiday sales. The printer works flawlessly but I'm having trouble printing from eBay. I am using a MacBook Pro in Google Chrome. The labels show up very fuzzily when I go to print them and are way to small. Java has been exploding on the page, so I've been told to use a different web browser but same issue. I don't know if I should yell at eBay, Java, Apple, Google, or Dymo. I was told to install the DYMO stamps program (endicia). I grumbled, not wanting change, but did it anyway. I installed the Endicia software but after one incorrect password attempt was locked out!!!!!! I almost screamed!!

 

Please tell me if there's something I can do that would enable me to print my labels directly from eBay. I've changed the settings to match the Zebra printer (4 x 6) but they still come up this way.

 

Thank you!

Help! 

I've been going around in circles, following the on screen prompts, but I’m not getting anywhere.. I NEED HELP with a seller that is not holding up his end of the deal. I bid on an item & won, paid for it and never received it. Contacted the seller who told me to wait 5 more days. After 5 days, I contacted the seller and told him I still did not receive it. Seller told me they would refund my money. I said I still wanted the item, and would wait for the replacement, because this was a gift. The seller then told me he would refund the money & then I could buy it again! I told him that is not right, because I won the bid for a very good price, and I probably won't get so lucky again. I opened a case in the resolution center, and then the seller responded by telling me they had refunded my money, and then said the case is now closed. There was no way I could escalate this problem once the case was closed, and they knew that, it's obvious they know how to work the system in their favor so that the buyer won't have a chance to dispute their decision or have any say in the matter. To me this is the same as fraud. They can't auction something off and then offer to refund the money and tell you if you still want it, you’ll need to buy it again, that's bogus!!! And If they can go through the trouble to send me another one IF I re-buy it, then their is no reason why they can't ship me a replacement for the one I didn't receive. I'm beginning to think they never had any intentions of sending the original item to me, and probably never did, because they were probably making little to no profit on it. If they are not going to honor low bids, they should have set a minimum bid amount, but they didn’t. Their loss,  my gain. I won the bid, and no matter what the amount was they need to uphold their end of the deal. Their were other sellers auctioning the same item that I could have bid on, but I quit looking when I won this bid. I never thought I would have to fight for a legitimate purchase. This seller is in the wrong, and I don't think they should be able to get away with this. Who knows how many other buyers have lost out as well.  I will be waiting to hear from you, and I would appreciate your assistance in this matter. let me know if you have any questions. Thank you


P.S. I would like to discuss this matter with ebay’s customer support agent, but that is next to impossible to pick up a phone and call them. I have searched ebay for quite some time, and all I do is get caught up in their loop of tabs. There are tabs for Contact Us, Help & Contact, Answer Center, and a few others, all of which lead you nowhere. None of their suggested questions pertain to my problem. I don’t think it is very business like, when you can’t speak to a real person when a problem comes up.  I ask the ebay community if anyone knew the phone number for customer support, and the only answers I got were to click on the neverending Contact Us tabs.

Six weeks ago I placed an order on ebay.fr.  The woman shipped a week later.  The tracking number says it made it to Michigan, but the trail ended  there 2 1/2 weeks ago.  Do I open a case?  I contacted the seller a week ago and she suggested waiting another week.  I contacted her again, but haven't heard back yet.  Should she just refund my money?  I don't want her to take a strike, as it's not her fault, but I think it's time I got my money back.  I certainly don't want to miss any deadlines.  There was no estimated deliver date on the order.

Item from France lost by USPS

Alright, here's the scenario.  I sell trading cards that I ship with just a white envelope + stamp.  When I have many items to ship, I have been opening the 'order details' page in a new tab for every single item.  This is kind of a pain when I have 30+ items to ship on a given day.  Is there a better way to do this that does NOT involve printing shipping labels?  Paying $2 to ship something with tracking that sells for $3 is -never- happening.

 

My question - is there a way to bulk view order details/shipping addresses for sales I have made?  I.e. a list that just shows the item name and shipping address of every item at once?

Shipping multiple items

I've bought a lot of stuff on ebay and this has never happened before. I bought an item for $19.95, and when I went to pay for it, the price had magically gone up by six dollars. Shipping was free, so that isn't it. Has this happened to anyone else?

Bidding & Buying discussion

I had a buyer who bought and paid for an item. They then emailed me to have the item sent to a different address. I canceled the order and informed them that I can only ship to the address that is listed in the order and they can rebuy the item and input the correct address in Paypal. They then bought the item with an eBay and Paypal account that was created today. The first name on the new account is different but the address is correct. This is very odd behavior and I would like to get the community's opinion on this. The item is over $100, should I proceed or cancel again? Thanks in advance

Weird Buyer. Need help!

I need some help!  I had a customer who claimed they did not receive an item and they opened a 'REQUEST".  Delivery confirmation shows they received the package, and after a day or two, the customer found the package and closed the request.  It is now showing up on my dashboard as a defect.  I contacted ebay for help, but was told they WILL NOT remove the defect even though the customer received their item.  I was told by customer support to escalate the case, but after they told me to do this, I was told I cannot do this because the customer closed the case.   What can I do to fix this?

Defect Ratings - Need Help

Approximately one week ago, I won an auction for tickets to a college football game last weekend. By the time the auction ended, a family emergency had arisen which prevented me from attending the game. Thanks to a terribly slow internet connection at home, I was unable to retract my bid in time, thereby winning the auction.

 

I submitted a detailed cancellation request for the item; and with no communication or reply from the seller whatsoever, he agreed to cancel within minutes. I messaged him through eBay to offer a thank-you and also did not receive a reply.

 

Yesterday, I received a message from the seller indicating that he had to relist the tickets in a last-minute fire sale (not sure why he did not offer them to the long list of bidders who came up just short of my winning bid). He blamed me for not receiving "market value" for the tickets; and asked that I pay the difference.

 

I was shocked and appalled at the message and understood our transaction to be canceled, so I ignored what I perceived as a guilt trip. Now, the seller is threatening me (through eBay) with legal action if I don't pay him the difference.

 

I have been trying to find a way to report the seller and give details of this communication to eBay for nearly an hour now; but am just going in circles. There doesn't seem to be a clear way to open a resolution or make eBay aware of the situation; I just continue to click through a series of "help" links that link back to each other.

 

Any suggestions on how to proceed? Should I simply save the messages and wait for him to file some sort of complaint through eBay? It is my understanding that once a transaction is canceled - it's as if it never existed. Any help or guidance is appreciated.

Bidding & Buying question

Over a week ago I sold an item. The buyer said the shipping (which was listed in the auction), was too high, and told me I needed to lower it. I sent them a revised invoice with the cheapest shipping available. The buyer said they never got the invoice and that they weren't paying until I sent it again. They then said that the revised shipping was still too high, and that they wanted to "end this order." So I opened an unpaid item case.

 

Now, a few days days later, the buyer suddenly paid for the item and the original shipping price, and sent me a message telling me I need to put the extra money in the box. -.-

 

I know I can just refund the shipping difference via Paypal, but at this point I'm feeling really uncomfortable about this transaction. I'd like to cancel it and refund the buyer's money (and block them from bidding on any future auctions), but each time I try, Ebay says "We weren't able to cancel your order You can't cancel this order right now because there's a case open for it."


The resolution center case is closed, and there's nothing showing up on Paypal. Where is the case? And, is it not possible for me to cancel this order?

 

Given the unpleasant nature of this transaction, I'm afraid the buyer will get the item, claim it's not what they ordered (or that's it's broken, the wrong color, or whatever), and demand a full refund. Then I'll be out the cost of the item as well as the shipping.

Can I cancel this? If so, how?

I listed a shirt on October 28th and it sold November 2nd. About a week passed and the buyer didn't pay so I messaged her and asked if she still wanted the item. She gave me some excuse about her being stuck on the payment screen? So by the 19th I assumed she didn't want the item and I relisted it. Today someone new bid on the item and imediately after this the first buyer paid for the item. I'm confused as to how this happened first of all since I am set to have automatic unpaid claims set. Also should I cancel this new listing even though there is a bid and I will get a fee? Or is there something else I should do?

y bid-Im very unhappy!!

 

Yesterday I received a jewelry box that I won and it is damaged.  A little background.......When shopping on eBay, I limit my searches to items located in the US only.  The item location for this particular listing was Rosemead, California.  The seller's feedback score was 99.6% so I felt no need to investigate their member page.  When I messaged the seller about the damaged item, a notice from eBay popped up that said the seller's account is on another site and they may not speak English.  **bleep**?  That is when I discovered the seller is in China but has a US warehouse from which they ship.  I have already reported the item for having a misleading location.  In response to my message about the damaged item, the seller said "hi,so sorry for the Late reply ,i got it,thank you for your picture,could you accept that giving you 25% refund to buy some glue,hope could understand ,other part could still be storage trinket,not sure whether it is ok for you,look to your reply,thank you so much."  As far as I'm concerned, that response is ludicrous.  The piece that is broken really can't be glued.  It would look like **bleep** and would not hold.  My reply to the seller was "No, that is not acceptable. This item is a Christmas gift and I will not give my daughter an item that has been glued."  So far, the seller has not responded to my reply. 

 

Yes, the item was supposedly located in and shipped from a US location.  However, the item is also a cheaply made Chinese product offered for sale by a seller who is located in China.  Had I known that beforehand, I would not have looked at the item and certainly would not have bid on it.  I don't appreciate these kinds of listings being allowed to show up in search results when I limit the criteria to "US only."  Does eBay really allow sellers to use this kind of loophole?  In my opinion, this seller's listings are extremely misleading and in violation of eBay's policy.  Should I report this seller for inappropriate listing practices?  If the seller doesn't find it appropriate to send me a replacement jewelry box, I will need to report the seller for that ill behavior.  Unfortunately, I haven't had any luck finding the eBay page to accomplish that.

 

Thanks a lot for your time and advice.

At 9:30 tonite buyer sends message thru ebay telling me he saw a small hole in side of shoe that he did not noticed when he was bidding. Now wants me to cancel this transaction! Now with him trying to say there is a defect in a USED item, and wanting to Cancel.....there is no way I am going to cancel this transaction and leave myself open to feedback from him or anything else I am not aware of. There were 5 bidders on this item and one had emailed me before auction ended asking me to sell him the shoes. I told him he would have to bid. He did so and is the second high bidder and is first in line for a second chance offer. HOW DO I DO THIS....HELP!
