porcelain vase

I can't believe this jsut happened, I was raising my max bid with 2 seconds left on the timer and suddenly the auction was just over. As I am looking through the bidding history I can see that the bids are not showing up in chronological order. Note how my last bid is timed 3 seconds after a higher bid, there are also other bids that seem to have that 3 second delay. How can this be possible, and where did my bid for 658 disappear too? 


Is there any possibility to appeal the matter to Ebay, since it must be an error in their servers, some kind of lag or something.


I had my heart set on this item... I was willing to much higher than what it actually sold for. I can't begin to explain how sad I am right now.

Item 221835749481


I just bought two dolls as an Estate Sale and I don’t know much about them. I bought them because I thought they were in good shape.  This doll is about 22”-24” from head to toe. She appears to be of porcelain and held together, inside,  by a white elastic cord. The entire body feels and looks like it is porcelain.

The markings on the back of her head are:


I find that A15 indicates a Steiner but that is as far as I can get.

Her eyes appear to be glass and are green. They look like real eyes. Her eye brows and eyelashes are painted.
Her fingers are all intact and I have not taken off her clothing to look for other marks.

The dress and clothing appear to be in very good shape.
She is on a metal stand marked:



Did I list this properly?  I have no WATCH and I believe this may be a valuable doll. I'm afraid I need to edit my posting.


Any help would be appreciated.

I've got a ceramic bird on nest figurine that I would like to list today but the mark on the bottom is smeared.  I don't think it's RELPO'; it looks like it starts with "RED" and then maybe 3 or 4 more letters.  Can you help with ID?  Also, what kind of bird is it?  Thanks for taking a look!

Ok. I will start from the beginning. I am in a little group on Google+ called Pirate Cove. The other day, the owner of the group suddenly left the group and gave it to the co-owner. Now, there is a problem. The co-owner hasn't been seen for years on Google. The group must run with an owner! If it doesn't have an owner, the whole group could collapse. I need to find and contact the co-owner (named Vincent P.) before it is too late! You are probably wondering where eBay comes in now. Well, I was looking at Vincent P's past profile photos, and I found on his last photo, an eBay watermark. I am unsure if it is his username on there, or somebody else's, but I need to find out. My problem is that I can't read the watermark.  know that some peopl on here are good at reading stuff like this.Smiley Happy Can anybody read the picture? I posted it below.

Thanks for understanding!!

Hello Everyone

I picked this up a while ago and I put it aside because it looked like there may be a strand of beads missing (see the empty hook/loop in the center between the strands) but the more I look at it I'm thinking that may have been deliberate because if they placed another strand in the center it probably would have overlapped onto the other two strands.  Also, I don't know how to describe the green beads.  Any input is appreciated as always.  One other question is age.  Any thoughts on age? Thank you in advance

Stones are my weak point. I was thinking moonstone but second guess myself. I have not cleaned it but it changes colors from blue to gray and looks to have black specks in it. It is marked sterling  I think it is older as it has been testeted so many times little chunks missing. I usually dont buy rings like this but this one was speaking to me lol

Dolls discussion

This question may make me sound like a complete dunce...but I'm a semi-lovable dunce... providing you pick up your dirty clothes and rinse off your dishes...hopefully, it's worth a little "stupid question" mileage...


Every time I've ordered from a particular seller, they offer cheaper prices if I buy outside of eBay. Honestly, it took a couple of times to get it. I thought no one would be dumb enough to put it in writing directly below the prominent yellow warning on every header.


I just don't respond. I know better than to take that risk {I'm just a plain old dunce..not really old...more semi-approaching the beginning of the tail end of middle aged...kinda...old enough to engage in utter nonsense when I'm seriously sleep deprived...and not nearly old enough to get a pass for it...but not a gullible dunce...most of the time...sorta...}.


I've only been making purchases for a few months. If I don't report a seller willing to violate eBay's policies, is there an impact on the seller community I'm not grasping?


The seller chose to be responsible for the consequences. Most of us resort to doing stupid things when we're desperate {or sleep deprived}. I don't know if that's the motivation, I'm just hesitant to rat someone out if they might depend on sales for their total income. On the other hand, I feel like the importance of reporting is escaping me. It would be just as wrong not to give the consequences to other sellers equal consideration.

Thanks in advance for your answer!  happyfcgonecrazy.gif

Hoping someone could help me with this Spode Copeland Pattern. I have searched everywhere. I have a set with plates, cups, teapot, and all have same undermarkings. They are handpainted. Signed and numbered in red S 1675 4 (some have just 4 dots in place of 4) most also have a black number, impressed imprint hard to read, and stamped with the Copeland Spode England backstamp. The border is a very dark gold, I would say it is bronze in color. I would describe the picture as a countryside church scene. Also, the Cream and Sugar image is different from all the other pieces, not sure if they are part of the same set?? Would love ANY information or insight. Thanks in advance!

Hi - does anyone here recognize the mark on this 14k pin?  It looks like an F with an arrow through it; but not like the Fisher signature I've seen elsewhere.


Not sure if it helps to identify the pin, but there are also hand scratched marks on the back - initials that look like JM and 11394.

The stem is marked 14k and 5833.


Would it be correct to call this ozidized gold finish?  Thanks very much for any help you have!!

So according to eBay.

"In general, bids can't be retracted, but there are some exceptions:

  • You made a mistake when entering your bid, e.g. $50 instead of $5.
  • The item's description changed significantly after you placed your bid.
  • You can't contact the seller."

    So how is this Retractable?

    I put up for auction my item at 150 and it had 1 bid then in the morning i saw 207 (i got happy) and now its 150 again with a bunch of 150 bids.

    So how does this become retractable? My other problem is feel that people can just bid to check out how much are otherp people willing too pay then if they see the item is way out of their range they would cry to ebay telling them they made a mistake.

    I was trying to think that maybe the guy wanted to bid 20 but thats imposible.. so maybe lets just say he made a mistake of adding 200.. but if that was the case.. why would the bid escalate to 211.22 when in the morning was 207?

Urgent!This needs to be answered.



! am doing a sale for an older couple moving and downsizing. Yesterday the gentleman gave me a metal index card holder full of Topps baseball cards circa 1955 and asked if they would sell. He's is rightly proud of his Hank Aaron and "Sandy" Koufax cards and the Aaron card has seen much more handling probably being shown to friends etc.


There are quite a lot of duplicates and some of the cards are in much better shape than others. I know that every single tiny defect reduces the points value of the cards, but I would like to do the very best I can for the man. These cards were an important part of this man's youth and I hope I can give his "sacrifice" an appropriate value. 


What do I do now? I would appreciate any advice you can give me.


These pictures are obviously not scanned. That can be done but for a first step I wanted you to see what I am dealing with. There are around 60 cards.

Does anyone know who made this piece or how old it is. When I bought it the man told me it was very old and one of the ways to tell was that the hobnails were very pointy!  Wondering whether he was telling the truth!  Any help greatly appreciated. it is 7 3/4 in diameter and 3  1/4 tall.

Have what I believe to be a carved bone lime paste box, but not 100% sure if this is correct.


Your thoughts on the possible age, origin and use of this item?


Materials used appear to be bone, copper, bakelite and wood.


Size: 5 in.


Thank you!

selecting media mail in a listing

Hello Folks,


I recently came across this unusual pottery vase.  It has a bronze colored glaze with iridescent qualities.  It appears the the glaze was applied and rubbed off the high spots (revealing a light brown color underneath), then refired with a clear glaze.  It's quite large and stands about 9 1/2" tall.  It has 2 handles and measures approximately 8 1/2" wide at its widest point  There are no manufacturer markings that I can find.


The vase appears to have some age to it and has some overall crazing to the clear glaze.  The pottery material appears thinner and lighter than comparable sized pieces made by Roseville, Weller, etc.


Does anyone recognize this style/motif, and possibly have some ideas who made the piece?  Thanks in advance for any assistance you can provide!

I am hoping someone can provide some information on this small tray.  It measures about 5 5/8" by 4 5/8".  It looks like Pickard with the floral pattern and basket off flowers in the center and gold overlay, but is marked what looks like "sace" Germany along with what may be a signature.  I can only make out the last letters "oines".  I find some listings where the "sace" is translated as saxe, and the lettering is very similar but all of these are printed on and not engraved. Any help will be appreciated.

Looking forward to a great day

OK, so my husband wants to set up an account and store to list items (some of my inventory is going to be transferred to him until he builds up the maximum listings for the store he chooses).


If you were starting fresh, registered today, zero FB... what precautions would you take to avoid being a scam magnet? Keep in mind in this house I know what's going on and how to deal with situations for the most part, but when you add the zero FB and new account factor in there, I'm afraid every scammer on the planet will be buying from us. We don't have the capital to go and be a buyer and build 500 FB like I did with the account I'm using now.


I am aware there are things I have listed that he will not at all be able to list himself for fear of us losing the item...


Does anyone have any tips on how you can start out by jumping right in?

If you were starting fresh as a seller...

I just got a buyer for a video game. He sent me an email saying Ebay is printing out his address wrong and it SHOULD be THIS way. He says he's tried to change it and it's not working. So I checked the buyer: the account name is a different name than the mailing address & name he emailed me (in Puerto Rico), he just changed his username in the last month AND he's got a TOTAL of 60 purchases, but 48 are within the last month. I'm wondering if this guy has someone else's credit card...what do I do? Sure, I'll get paid and it's not my problem, but I just feel I should warn SOMEONE. Or at least double check. Shouldn't I?

By the way, I sent an email to the REGISTERED account holder asking simply, "is this the correct address?". No response yet...

I am a seller who is on the edge of the second tier of store benefits.  I am trying to go with more fiixed price listings because that's where the promotions are. I have spoken to friends who are not selling at at my volume and they are not paying for auction listings at all even though they are listing more than my allotted amount of free action listings. I think this is proof that ebay is trying to force more people into stores. What do your think?

I just had a customer contact me about one of my items. He said that in his search results, the price shown that it was $19.99, but when he opened the listing to view it, it showed it was $49.99..but actually it was neither..its $29.99  anyone else ever have this complaint?

This was the item in question.. and it does concern me, and could possibly be a reason behind the lack of sales over the past few months

Hi All,

          I have on my paypal account a purchase for 116.19 cents. I cannot link it or the date of the transaction which was the 072115 to a seller which I already have a transaction with for a lesser amount and the product is also listed on my paypal account but is good but not this particular one.   I contacted paypal who stated that I should contact the seller to ask what it was for because Paypal have a record but cannot link it to a transaction.  I did contact the seller but as yet have recieved no response.   The transaction is listed as a no interest credit trasaction for 6 months, but I cannot understand where it has come from.  Anyone else experiance this, and more importantly it does scare me a little since if I believe truly I purchased nothing for this amount and it can just appear out of thin air as a charge what did I do wrong ?.  Has this happened tyo anyone else, should I just pay off the credit account and close it to be safe from this happening again.


Thank you.

I bought a phone from a seller that clearly described the phone as (in good condition, may have a few wears and tears, good imei, icloud unlocked, can be used with Cricket Wireless or Straight Talk), however when I received the phone I couldn't take pictures because the rear camera was damaged, and when getting ready to activate with Cricket Wireless the IMEI stated the phone had been reported lost or stolen.

I contacted the seller, received my return shipping label from ebay, and the item was delivered within 3 days to the seller. Since then I have been contacting my seller to get information on my refund and the seller has not replied.

Because of this situation, I refuse to ever shop on ebay again. Some sellers lie in their descriptions, then sell it to people knowing they were lying.

Pretty new seller here. I recently bought a used iphone for a pretty good deal. Did a little research, imei check clean, not stolen or blacklisted. Phone in good cosmetic condition. Cool. Put the phone up for auction and sold for a lot better than I expected actually. Next day buyer pays with a note to me: "please make sure you remove icloud before shipping". (not verbatim) **bleep** is that? I thought. Further investigation showed me that the phone was locked through apple and could not be activated since I didn't have the password. After a few brief messages back and forth I refunded the buyer (maybe 30-40 minutes after he'd payed and that was the end of communication.. Now my question is, how will that affect my seller rating/status? Nothing was shipped. No dispute or anything in the resolution center and as of now no negative feedback. (the first time I'm hoping that I don't get any at all) lol. Just wondering about the repercussions of a refund without a return so to speak. Thanks

I won an auction for a shirt on eBay Germany on Thursday afternoon. On the listing it said they accept bank transfer and cash on collection as payment so as soon as I won it I messaged the seller to ask them to send me their bank details so I could make payment but I've not heard anything back from them yet, I messaged again today but still no reply. How long do I wait before I give up on them? Will I get a non-payment strike against me if the seller never gets back to me and I can't pay? I'm not worried that the only option for me to make payment is by bank transfer as I know it's common on eBay Germany and I have done it before and had no problems, I'm just unsure what to do if the seller just doesn't respond!

I tried to sell an ipod recently, and a fraudster put a bid in, using an ebay member's ID.  He/she didn't pay me, sent me lots of falsified emails from ebay and pay pal, and also tried to get me to send it to another address in the States.  Anyway, ebay were notified by the person whose identity was stolen, but I still have the item sitting in my account, as 'sold' despite it being a scam.

hi. i won a bid and asked the seller to delay shipment as the item is intended as a birthday present for a friend living in another state. her birthday is a month away, so wanted delivery of item to be closer to her day. unfortunately, the seller (very prompt and courteous) explained it would hurt their ratings to postpone delivery. while i understand policies are in place for the protection of all parties, it seems there should be made available a delivery option for buyers like me who didn't simply forget to have the post office hold my mail as suggested in a previous comment, but happened upon the perfect birthday present a month early. it was also suggested in that same comment i mentioned that the seller should delay "receiving" payment. why would i want them to wait on my money? and if they aren't in fact waiting on payment, that doesn't seem honest. and i'd like my buyer rating to remain as it is too. any thoughts/help? in the meantime, i will go ahead and have the item sent to my friend so as to avoid paying additional postage. live and learn, i suppose. glad it's only one birthday gift and not my entire christmas list!

I sold an item, but the buyer hasn't paid for it. He contacted me via sms and tried to pay directly to my paypal account - not via ebay system, and he told that he will send additional funds so I would have sent it to Africa to his sun (although the delivery address of the order is different). I refused. There were no funds from him on my paypal account and the status of the order was "unpaid". But he continued to send me the messages asking me to ship the item ASAP.
Eventually I decided to cancel the order. The request of cancelation was sent to the buyer. But he didn't accept it. 
Then I tried to open the case in "Resolve the problem" and got the following message:
"Your request to cancel this transaction has been sent to the buyer.
  • It's not possible to open an unpaid item case while this request is in progress."

I'm pretty sure that the buyer won't accept my request. I have sent the request 3 days ago.


What should I do next? How long I have to wait?

I recently won 4 separate auctions from a seller in Canada ( I'm from Canada as well ) who stated international shipping of $30 US. Being local, I assumed shipping would be a little cheaper and that he would combine shipping for all 4 ( you know what they about when you ASS U ME ) Having contacted him right after receiving his  quick invoice of $120 US for 4 comics, he explained that he needs to charge the high shipping to recover losses due to low winning auction prices. After much discussion about possibly lowering his shipping cost, he finally agreed to cancel the orders. The very next day, 4 unpaid cases are opened against me! After I re- contacted him, he said he uses E Bays UPI Assistant and that it automatically send outs unpaid strikes after the 2nd day ( which I later found out he could have set it for any length of time ). He told me that he can't cancel the orders after this happened but if I pay for the books, he will ship it to me and I can return them back to him for a refund ( except he states shipping is non-refundable so I'd be out $120 ). He no longer returns my emails so any help in knowing what to do once I receive these 4 strikes for non-payment and what E Bays take may be on this. Thanks for letting me rant.

The buyer bought and received the ordered item. I made sure post a picture of the model number of the item in the listing. After further research the buyer was correct. The listing did not match the model number.I listed the item as 2.1 model and actuality there are a 2.0. Honestly, your splitting hairs when comparing the two but I apologized and offered a $20 refund for his trouble or he could send them back for a full refund.

The next day he sent another message stating that "I also wanted to tell you I noticed a piece broken when I opened the shippping box"

He sent a picture and there is no way the latch was damaged in shipping. And why didn't he state that in the initial message. When I packaged it for delivery I wrapped up all the items in white plastic. If he noticed the misrepresented model number surely he would have noticed the broken latch.

Now he is requesting a $30.00 refund to make it "square" but part of me wants to stick to my guns. $20 refund or ship it back for a full refund.


Any suggestions?
