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

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

IT'S IN THE NEWS...

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.

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.

Snatched up this beauty yesterday and was wondering if ya'll have ever seen anything like this with the fake flower stems attached, It came on the cord but it's a brooch really. I noticed while taking pics that the one earring is smashed :smileysad: I am afraid to bend it back for fear of breaking it.

Does this look familiar to anyone?? would you just sell as a set or break it up and put the earrings in a repair lot??

Any thoughts on the possible age, origin and maker of this small, unmarked, solid silver paperweight(?) or table/desk sculpture(?) ???

Had it tested by my local jeweler and he stated that it's at least sterling or better (probably "pure").

Size approx: 3-1/2 in.

Weight approx: 9.5 oz.

 

Thank you!

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

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

Gold Bracelet

Is this a vintage purse ? thank you for any help. 100_5812.JPG100_5813.JPG

Vintage Clothing & Accessories discussion

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!!!

Italian Hand Woven Runner ID Help

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? 

Any and all help is appreciated! I'm lost on this one.

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

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

Help with old Jewlers table?

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:

Book value

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

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

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?

Seller not responding...

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?

Where will my charity listing show up on Ebay

Hello,

 

I had an item sell and the buyer did not pay.  I cancelled the order but when cancelling I put the reason as "the buyer wanted to cancel" Is it possible to "uncancel" the transaction so that I may either open an unpaid case or cancel with another reason which will get me my credit faster?  Currently, I cannot do anything with the transaction as I believe the buyer must confirm the cancellation.  Seeing that the buyer was not agreeable to the terms, I dont' even expect him/her to respond to my request to confirm the cancellation.  What are my options?

 

The reason for this question is that I am going to be billed the ebay fees for an item that sold but wasn't paid for but I cannot cancel either.

 

 

Thank you!

Hi Ebayers!

 

I purchased an item and discovered after purchasing that my address was outdated. I wrote immediately to the seller to ask them to send the item to the updated address. I wrote to both contact methods provided by the seller. Both of those messages were sent within moments of the purchase. However, the item was delivered to the wrong address.  I have written to the seller 3 business days ago and I have had no response.

I opened a case with usps who finally said they don't know what happened... I wrote notes and posted it on the mailboxes to my apartment complex and no response.. I drove to all the apartment complexes on my street to ask if they know anything. The weirdest thing is I have a locked box so no one could have taken it. Are aliens into wifi cards and screws theses days? Maybe their UFO broke down. Seriously it's only around $20.00, but the principle of paying for something and getting nothing is eating me up.

Closing a cancel request

I just bought a projector that didn't work. The seller told me to bring it to a repair shop, which I'm having a friend do. Now the seller only wants to refund if I return the item, after he told me to bring it to a shop to repair.

So I opened a case, about the item being defective, but I only got a return-option back, so I closed the case again (I wanted to start a new case, so I could ask ebay to step in later on), but noticed that you can only open one case.

Now I can't ask ebay for help and the seller is quite stubborn and wants me either to return the item or refund a part of the item which I find not enough. What do I do?

Bidding & Buying question

Dear fellow eBayers, i just had a buyer after 5 days after item being delivered open an defective broken item not as described as new case, of which immediately is making crazy demands. First off i would like to start with the day before opening the case he described in detail the item and how some components are very no longer unavailable and how he new all about these units. The next day he opens a case saying that he has disassembled the unit taken it apart and found that a fuse is missing and the ever so precious chip he was talking about the day before in a message to me.and get this the name of this missing precious chip is also his email12345preciouschipthatsmissing at ya who took it ? i wonder.

Now i have sold many of these units before all with perfect feedback i bought them straight from the manufacturer, these come sealed until i open them and then i take pictures of them before i ship them out.

In his pictures submitted of the unit completley taken apart you can see pry marks all along the enclosure as it is plastic and many tabs are now damaged he goes on to say that he doesn beleive I would take these missing precious chips out but it must have been someone that had access to my inventory that are responsible for the mising parts.

I mean serisouly he then demands half the money back and to keep the unit, then there are more mising parts and wants to send it back and a full refund and starts telling me what to do.

He then goes on to say this is how ebay works and how he doesnt make the rules but i must abide by them by immediatly giving him a full refund and paying for a retun label for him to ship it back to me.

IN his pictures also the unit doesnt even have the same battery that they are ahipped out with it iis been changed out.

Anyone that can give me some insight would be great cause im really trying to buil a name and keep getting these really awful people that want to ruin my feed back if i dont submit and honestly i gave him the unit for below my cost just to move it and they are all brand new old stock i have pictures of the exact unit ishipped him and it was not missing anything i dont disassemble anything and in his pictures its in pieces and he says its broke and missing parts What do i do, thank you in advance for your help very much

Hello community. I have question regarding customer support and opened case resolution.

I ordered item more than 2 months ago, and didn't get it. I waited estimated delivery time, and contacted seller. He didn't respond so i opened case where explained, what already more than 1.5 months left  from byuing, and requested refund. Instead of helping me, the customer support member answered, what he just checked tracking number and my item marked as "accepted on postal service" (only after i opened request!!!), and prolonged my case for another 15 days. So yesterday ended prolonged period, but my case still on hold and I nothing can do with them. Also since my item more than 2 months old, i can do anything except contact seller, follow seller, and sell item; under "My action" menu in item history.

 

To summarize my long post:

I ordered item, but didn't get it. Wrote message to seller, but didn't get respond. Opened case and asked to refund.  Only after case was opened, seller updated shipping info and sent package to post office (after 1.5 months after item was bought). The support member decided to put my case on hold for another 15 days, to allow package (what just sent from seller) arrive to my post office. And after 15 days left, still i didn't get package; my case still on hold; i didn't get money as asked in opened case; i lost already more than 2 months.

Great support, huh.

So my question: how i can to contact with support center managers or something to escalate my situation. Since from customer point of view - it's total bull**bleep**. I didn't get item, and  asked to refund my money, but instead if it, support forced me to waste more time and waiting for package what i not requested in my case.

 

Cheers.

Shipping

So I bid the buy it now price for an auction on a bronco.  I sent the deposit via paypal.  called the seller and he offered me free shipping because I paid the buy it now price and he said he had connections with a shipper because he shipped a lot of vehicles all over the US.  His wife called me back and said to subtract $400 from the buy it now price and send that amount to her, but she requested that I go to a wells fargo and deposit it into her account so she coud avoid pay pal fees....(that should have been my first clue that something was up and I should not have done that, but I wanted to be helpful because it seemed that they were trying to be helpful with shipping costs)...  the auction ended april 24th, the phone conversation was a few days later.  The wife called and said that the shipper was behind on deliveries and that it would take several days.  Several days later I contacted her and she said the shipper was having truck difficulties and more delays were happening, and at this point she sent me a text that said she paid the shipping company $100 to hurry things up and that I would only owe $300 of the money that I subtracted from the buy it now price... I am thinking that she is really being helpful here because of the delays.  Two days ago the shipper calls me for a drop off location and tells me that the delivery charge will be $600.  I'm like what?  That can't be right and I texted about it and she said she would paypal me $200 to cover the difference...when I asked her about the $100 that she had already paid the shipper, and that she said I would only owe $300 she got mad and told me what a great deal I got on the truck and that I should just be happy to pay the difference.  I told her that I wasn't happy because $100 is $100 and it's not that easy to come by.  Well she never sent the $200 to paypal, and the delivery driver got to the drop off and I had to pay $600 to get the truck.  Well I left negative feedback because the truck was not as advertised, it was in much worse shape, and I had to pay the full shipping price because  went back on her husband's promise.  Well when saw the negative feedback she filed for a duplicate title on the truck and told me that the one I had was no good anymore and if I didn't send her the $400 that her husband said to discount for the shipping that she was going to file a repo claim on the truck.....so she has $2950 from me for the truck, I paid the $600 delivery fee, and she is threatening me with a repo claim if I don't pay this $400 and retract my feedback.  Can you say Extortion??  Here's the kicker of it all..... and her husband run a repo business.......  she claimed that I was trying to extort her because I wanted her husband to honor his word to me about the shipping....  I typed all of this to warn others about getting burned.  Please don't do what I did and count on people to do the right thing.  Go through paypal and ebay for communications and transactions or you leave yourself wide open for getting ripped off and robbed.  People sometimes keep their word and sometimes not...use all your protections with pay pal and ebay so you don't get screwed...  I admit I allowed this to happen to myself because I did not go through the provided channels.  So worst case here is that now I pay the price that I bid and between $600 and $700 for the shipping.  If she sends me the other title.  I guess it could have been worse, but I learned through this.  I have bought two other broncos via ebay and the transactions went perfectly.

I left myself open for it and I got burned

Specifically his reasoning, as from his messages, is that while he did receive the item, a powdered wood product, he could tell it was low quality from the look and smell. As sawdust it varies to some small degree in color and smell naturally, I'm not certain how it was different from what he was expecting, maybe in color, but he did not say that. Before leaving feedback he told me "Just give me all my money back and i wont leave feedback." It was for a very large order $450 worth. After his first email I offered to take a return. Somewhat bizzarely in his message he said I had previously ripped him off as well, based an a previous order where he requested a different address than his paypal one, so i refunded him completely and canceled the order. I'm not sure how that would constitute me ripping him off, or why he would buy from me again if he had an issue with me. Also regarding my product, I produce it myself, there is no way the quality is low or of it not being what I produce. I'm fairly certain I actually produce the highest quality version of this product that's sold. I'm quite worried his feedback calling me a selective scammer will scare off many potential buyers. I'm going to try to sort it out, but quite hurt by this kind of behavior, it seems mailicious and evil. Any suggestions? :smileysad:
