I posted this on the Selling Board and then discovered this board.


I've had this purse for over 20 years. Purchased it at a consignment store under the impression that it was a real Coach. Now, I'm not sure. The straps are sewn onto the sides. The flap has a magnetic snap on it. The Creed is impressed onto the inside (not a seperate patch) and reads, "Coach Leatherware. This is a Coach bag, U.S. made out of a completely natural gloved tanned cowhide. The scars, scratches, veins and wrinkles are natural markings characteristic of full grain leather. Made in the United States. No. 0711-316.

Measuremens are 7-3/8" length, height (not including straps) 6-1/2" and width 2-3/4."

Would like to sell it since I haven't used it in 10 years but cannot list it if it not real. Thanks for any help on this.

Vintage Coach Purse - Real or Fake?


I have what I believe to be an inscribed Marc Chagall watercolor.  I looked at it closely and it looks llike paint, no dots.  It has an inscription in French.  May I please have your opinions on this piece.

Thank you for your time and help!

Is this normal?

I was just looking at an auction. The page all of a sudden changed to this. I hit 'Close' and it went back to the auction. 


This has never happened in any of my other browser windows, so I'm thinking it's not on my end but who knows.

ebay hacked again?

Was looking at one of my sold items and clicked on shipping details, then saw this:




So cleared payment means (and I looked it up) means that once the seller has the funds in their account.


Since Paypal holds the payment as pending (not cleared) for up to 3 weeks, does that mean the seller is not suppose to ship until they have the funds in their account?

There is a story behind this choice....

New to eBay Chit Chat & More ~ EVERYONE WELCOME!

I bought these today at an estate sale - it was run by a business friend who was a antique dealer & who'd bought pieces from me I found in storage auctions. He told me he'd had these at least 20 years & always thought they were federal style eagle lamps until a friend told him that the little rise/hump on the top/back of the bird's heads was actually birds that were symbols of the nazi germany era.


Could this be true? They weren't expensive; $25 for the pair, but the plug appears like it could be from that time & the marble base isn't a cheap base, so I just want to be sure of what I have.


I appreciate any help.











Collectibles & Art discussion

So I did a bit of research on this mark, assuming it reads CW, and I once again need help. The internet seems to be conflicted between Colonial Williamsburg, and Charles Winston. But when I look up their marks, they don't look like this one. This one is more cursive like. 

Does this say CW? And if so, any clues? I can provide a picture of the piece if that would help. 

Happy 4th, everyone! And thanks as always for the help.

Does anyone know who used the Delta/triangle?  It might be H Kroll & Co, but I'm not convinced.

Best I can think of is "threaded". I tried searching terms like that but didn't find anything like this. The bail and the chain is making me feel like it may be older but any insight on that as well is much appreciated.

I posted this brooch and earring set on the weekend finds, but it has not been looked at that I can tell.

Sorry if redundant! 

This set is one of my finds on Sat. Never seen this set before and it looked so pretty I tested it for gold and diamonds, laugh if you want to - ha! Have no idea where to look as it is unmarked. Anyone familiar with the maker? I do appreciate the help that is found on this board!!092.JPG090.JPG093.JPG

I posted this in the tech help category too but curious if anyone else is having this issue...


I listed some items this afternoon. I have many items still at zero views not just from today but throughout the month. I decided to pick an item I put up this afternoon and search ebay for it. I first used the account I listed it from and using IE browser. I could not locate it. I searched the brand of the clothing and new as the only specifics and then sorted by price. The spot mine should be in is not showing my item. I then used another ebay account and searched using Google Chrome browser the same exact way. This time I was able to locate my shirt exactly where it should be. What is going on? Why is my item not viewable from both accounts? Is it a browser thing? an account thing? This seems so wrong. Perhaps this could explain why sales are so horrible lately. Anyone else having the same issue? You may want to check some items for yourself. Heres a side by side of what I am talking about.

I promise this is my last question for the day then I'll go out and share in the festivities of Fourth of July.

I'm ready to order some stones for the pieces that need repair and I'm struggling to match the color of the rhinestone I need and the pictures on Mister Stone's website.


Here are the earrings:


From Mr. Stone's Website, this is light sapphire:



This is montanna:



The pictures seem inconsistent for sizes and I'm super confused. Any advice on what shade of blue I am looking for? 
Thank you again. I'm sorry for all the questions, I am trying to do this on my own and have been doing a lot on my own. I hope I'm not over-crowding the board.

They are not marked so I didn't know if they are legit (maybe a gift with purchase sort of thing) or straight out fake.  In the meantime I saw the green at the bottom of one earring in the photo, poked at it and accidentally removed a rhinestone.  But it will be cleaned and repaired.

Unknown doll marking



I'm having a problem and need help. I opened a case requesting a refund for a defective item. But eBay closed my case and sided with the seller and says that I can file an appeal. But I can't find the page where I can do. The first picture shows that eBay Customer Support has made a final decision not to issue a refund and there's a link for 'send us an appeal'. But if I click on it, the hyperlink page shows 'Buyer appeals' page, but I can't a form to file an appeal in or an address to where I can send a text and pictures.


Anybody knows where the page is?





Shipping & Returns question

These earrings are unusual. Not sure if they are the prettiest things but definitely unusual construction and the back is rough. I do see a mark, it looks like T 90 or T 09? 06? 60? Maybe what looks like a T to me is just part of the "roughness" of the back of these. Unfortunately trying to search numbers for markings is not leading me anywhere.


Any clues?






Thanks as always! Heart

I'm sorry for so many posts as of late and I promise this is my last question for the day. As always, I tried searching terms but I didn't get anywhere.


This necklace seems old to me, but maybe it's one of those made-to-look-old pieces?

Last one - Carnelian Necklace, old or new?

I posted this on the vintage clothing board but have a split between antique and 80s. I don't see 80s with the various componets, but can't claim to never be wrong. The lace is definitely old~soft cotton, not the stiff, hard, modern lace. The lining fabric seems old, and the secondary fabric at the interior button hole and button edge seems old ( the blue with the little white flower). Does anyone have opinions based on the fabrics? And/or the construction? Thank you! More pictures in the next post.

Who Made Me? Costume Brooch/Pin.

Hi - 
I'm seeking a refund from a seller who sent me some pottery inadequately packaged (just a padded envelope) and it broke in transit.  

The seller didn't respond so I opened a case and attached photos.

Ebay said I should hear by 3rd of July or could ask them to step in and help.


I'm trying ot ask them to step in and help, but even through Im logged in, when I click the button, i just get a notice saying I'm not eligible to make that request.


Please help - I just need someone on the ebay side to take the case forward and make a decision about a refund since the seller isn't responding.  I'm pretty sure I'm not doing anything wrong.

Response I got from craiglist member:



Hi again, the car is stored with all the paperwork at eBay warehouse, in St Louis MO headquarters in container,sealed and ready for delivery.Like i told you Me and my husband travel a lot with our business and I prepared the sale with eBay. The transaction will be made thru eBay, all you have to pay for my car is $1500(delivery is already prepared and paid by me).You will have 10 days for inspection.During all this time eBay will keep safe the money into a trust account.So, this is not a blind transaction,you can see the car before decide to buy it.If you are satisfied with the car and decide to keep it you inform eBay about this and they will release the money to me.If the car is not as advertised and decide not to keep it eBay will refund you the money, no questions asked, and shipping back the car will be my concern. But I don't think that this will be necessary because the car is like in the pictures and how I described it.You will receive the car with all the necessary papers notarized to pass at your name (clear title, bill of sale, user’s manual, insurance etc).
If you want to start the transaction with eBay just reply me with your full name,full delivery address and your phone number and I will get everything started as soon as possible(with no further obligation or fees),then eBay will contact you with further instructions.


Thank you

I was hoping that I could get more info on these beads.  Clasp looks mid 20th century, probably, but could be a bit earlier.  The facets on the beads are irregular, reminding me of czech beads.  The necklace is almost 7 feet in length (yes 7 feet! I measured it agains myself, at 5'3"). Sorry if the pics arent veyr good. I had to borrow a camera I wasnt too familiar with Smiley Sad.


Edges of the facets are sharp, not rounded like they may appear in the pics

Hi! I took these pictures almost 3 weeks ago, being they looked so unusual.


The 3 blue "stripes", for want of a better word, went completely across the sky

from east to west and settled over the 3 clouds over the horizon. The smallest

cloud resembles one of those mushroom clouds like from the old newsreels of the

atomic bomb.


There were also these huge clouds overhead that had a kind of dirty look to them,

like maybe there was dust or something in them.


Thanks for any insight on this!

We're sorry there was a problem with this transaction. After reviewing the case, we made a final decision in the buyer's favor.

This case has been decided in the buyer's favor.

The buyer has been asked to return the item to you. Once tracking shows the item has been delivered to you, the buyer will be issued a full refund. Also, if the buyer uses an eBay provided shipping label to return the item, you will be required to pay for such shipping and will see this charge on your invoice in accordance with our policies. These charges vary.
Seriously Ebay... now I must possibly pay return charges, the buyer won the case like I did something wrong??? FFFFFF   UUUUU CCCCC KKKKK YOU EBAY.... I am so sick and tired of you stu  pid A$$holes!! Its cool... more time into my Amazon store... my stuff sells better there anyways...idiots!!

Small Native American Silver Pot or.......

Can someone tell me what I have? I first thought it may be a blanket because it was with a pile of quilts; but it's too big (8' x 5' 3"), too heavy & too rough feeling (almost like burlap!), so I'm guessing it's a rug or carpet.


Does anyone know what it is/where it's from? It has no name anywhere, but does have a label? with a number on it that has been attached to it with a thin plastic zip tie type thing.


PS - Is this a rug or a carpet? What is the difference?


Thanks - I appreciate any help.

I spliced both searches in photoshop to show what I mean. Any information would be great. Thanks. Apologize in advance if the pic is large, not used to posting pics in the forum here.

Listings not showing issue

Does anyone recognize the mark on this bracelet? It has a crown on top of two initials - maybe RD or LT or LD, with an open top wreath beneath the initials. I looked on Illusion Jewels, and around the Internet, but couldn't find it. 


It has a magnetic clasp, with the mark on the bottom part of the clasp that fits into the other, open part. I think it might be sterling, but I'm waiting for my new acid testing kit to arrive in the mail.


Also, are these agate stones? Thank you for any help.

Help with mark ID, please.

Is it safe to call this Native American when it is only signed 'Coin silver" ... also it is possible to attribute this to a certain tribe if it is in fact NA based on design motifs.


It has some red residue that almost looks like paint?  I could clean it off but not if it is intentional, was there ever a precedent of silver items being painted or enameled in this tradition of silversmithing? This was found with a bunch of really old jewelry, mostly broken, at an estate sale a few weeks ago so for all I know the previous owner painted it herself/himself.


I listed it elsewhere with a very broad description calling it South Western but have deactivated that listing because I should get my facts straight before selling this. I don't know what I was thinking.


Thanks for any help.

Ideas on this old coin silver bracelet

Tracking numbers for items I did not receive state delivered. Post office says I did not get insurance so they are not liable. Each item was under $20. Seller did not offer insurance but a fixed postal rate through USPS with tracking number. Who is responsible? Should I leave nutural FB since sellers are not going to do anything?

I think the PO probally put bot items in wrong box since I have a PO box located in the post office.

2 item's on the same day I did not receive

I recently had an unpaid item case opened on me. I contacted the seller previously and let them know I had made a mistake, but could pay them by 7-3-2015. They said that would be fine and if EBay opened an unpaid item case to contact them and they would let EBay know our payment date agreement. EBay did not open one, but the seller did over a week before our payment agreement date. So, I am not sure what to do. I have emails from them stating all this is true and I don't want the negative mark on my account either do I want to further do business with them since they went against what we agreed on. What can I do to remove the item from my account and the unpaid item case that gave me a bad reputation when I have bought several items with no problem since I opened account . EBay or Someone in Customer Service can read the emails between me and the seller proving this. How can I directly contact EBay that can look into this also?

Wrongful Unpaid Case Open

Hi Everyone,


Hope you had a nice 4th of July weekend.Smiley Happy


I have noticed for the past few weeks a bidder that is coming along and bidding up some items with this one seller. I have been watching this for about 3 weeks. This bidder never wins and I tried to see if any feedback is left from this bidder to the seller and I cannot find it? The bidder is up to 59% with bidding with this selling, which really is not too high, yet they are always there driving up the bids. In the older days, I would have sent this POS a message.Smiley Mad


What can I do??

Another Promo

I am practically new in the eBay selling scene. I have been selling since Jan 2015- 101 good feedback and $25,000 selling limit. Unfortunately some of my suppliers were not reliable on they're stock items which forced myself into cancel already paid sells due to out of stock merchandise.


I contacted eBay last month to discuss the defects posted on my dashboard. Since then I have not listed anything on my eBay. However I have been looking for different & reliable suppliers to star listing once again. To my surprise I received an e-mail from eBay stating that my selling account has been suspended. In addition to that I have an open case from a customer who requested a refund after 30 days. Funds are still  on hold at my Pay Pal account.


Today I send eBay an e-mail explaining how I am working hard on getting better suppliers ( probably they do not care) to start listing again. No clue on what's going to happen either with my account nor with the $145 hold on Pay Pal.


Please someone advise

Thank you

A Buyer purchased my fixed price item and upon sending a reminder to them that I was awaiting payment, they responded, asking for my address to send me a money order? What should I do? Don't payments HAVE to go through PayPal? And I don't want to cancel the transaction because it will count against me for my seller rating.

Selling discussion

If I sell an item for $50 and the buyer uses $25 ebay bucks, where do I get my money. Does $25 go into my PP account from the buyer and $25 into my PP account from Ebay? Do I get all $50 (less normal fees) or does Ebay charge the seller if the buyer cashes in their ebay bucks? Thanks

Selling discussion

What to do?  I have 24 hours to ship this item out in order to stay within the Ebay rules and not get slapped if I disobey that. So, when I go in to print my label, It won't let me because buyer's address is invalid. So, I go into PayPal to take a look there and address is the same and PayPal says "OK to ship".  So, I sent a message to my buyer asking that they please check the address for accuracy and let me know something. Naturally, I haven't heard from them. Anyone else dealt with this type problem?

Selling discussion

Had a sell today to a 0% feedback buyer who opened his/her account today. He/she paid in full so I know I have to ship it but something looks fishy to me.


Yes, I know that everyone starts at some point with 0% feedback but the fact the account was JUST opened doesn't seem right to me..


I know I have to ship it though.. what would you do?



Selling discussion

Hello I got a message from someone wanting to know if they bought one of my listings if they could pick it up as they are in same city as me. It is a auction style listing with a bin option. I don't know if they plan to bid or bin. Is they a way to add local pickup and a shipping option in case they choose to bid so I don't lose out on other potential bidders? Or if I left shipping how it is they bid and win is there a way to not charge them shipping cost if they pick it up?

Got a message about picking a item up.

4 days ago I was the successful bidder on an item, immediately paid via PayPal, and have yet to receive from the seller any acknowledgment or confirmation that the item has been shipped. This is an experienced seller with hundreds of sales. Should I just wait a while longer or send a message to the seller? I don't use ebay very often, but in the past I've always received some sort of message.

I have an idea to do a project car. I'd like to raise the money for the parts, paint, etc through kickstarter or some other crowdfunded site. At the end of the project, I'd like to acution the car. However, I'd like only the people that donated money to the project to be able to bid on it. There are a few other sites I've seen through Google, but they require it be for charity or 501c related. This would be for me, a private individual, so therefore it would end up being for-profit.


Is there anything on ebay that can do this type of set-up? I looked into prvate auction, but that is mainly for hiding identities.


If not on ebay, has anyone out there done somthing like similar? What site did you use?

Selling discussion

Okay...second post for me today...different situation. So thank youbfpr your helpnahead of time. I had an auction end last night and now the buyer is messaging me wanting a shipping quote to an Asian country. I sell internationally only through GSP. I know there are a lot of mixed opinions on GSP, BUT my personal experience with it as a sellerbhas been nothing but great and never had a single issue. So, it is the only way I will ship international. Now, I FEEL like this customer may have known this going in on this auction but felt like he could push me into a different international shipping method by playing coy and asking me the next day "how much is my shipping?". However, since I have never been on the flipside as an international customer making a purchase....I have to make sure that it is not possible that he just didn't realize this going in. Now....last thing I want is to force him into higher shipping than he wants to pay ..so my feeling is that maybe I should offer him to cancel transaction....what is your opinion? Is it possible that he didn't realize that I accepted ONLY GSP shipping as my international preferences or is he just trying to be slick and try and force me into shipping internationally his way. Up front I just want to say,I realize GSP cost a little more but I feel like it is my choice as a seller on this....thanks guys

Selling discussion

Really wasn't sure what board this belonged on but:


If you leave a negative response for a seller, is there anyway to combat a return negative response from them?


 I paid my auction promptly and tried to work out something with the seller several times.

       The problem was a set of books that had been rated in Good condition but were actually in Acceptable to Poor at best.  I decided to keep them if the seller would replace one book that had master copies(such as you would use in a classroom)that was missing numerus pages.  After several, not so nice, messages from the seller they finally sent me a book that had less original master copies than the one I received the first time.

      They did replace most of the pages but with copies of the originals instead of sending the original book.  I didn't want to spend anymore time or money sending back another book or books and am keeping the books but did leave the seller a poor review.


 I've never left anyone a poor review and I have a perfect score as a buyer and a seller.  I work hard to make sure my descriptions are as exact as possible and have never had so much trouble with anyone on ebay.  


But what protection does ebay offer to keep a legitimate complaint from being retaliated against.  I always post my buyers feedback immediately so they can offer whatever feedback they feel is appropriate without feeling threatened but this seller has waited to see, perhaps, what I might post before posting any feedback.  It's not hard to imagine their feedback may not be all that complimentary or even downright lies.


p.s. Wished there was a board that discussed Ratings, Feedback, etc.

Hi all - just a question about a cancelled purchase that ebay bucks were applied to - however, I had to cancel that order and re-order through the merchant. I was unable to apply my ebay bucks to the new purchase - can anyone advise what to do at this point to retrieve/reclaim my 13.20 that was just credited on 2JULY2015? I really would of liked to have used it on a purchase - but was unable to cancel and called the merchant directly - who invoiced me and I paid full price.

I'm new to this and it appears that ebay is charging us fees based on the total item price (in my case toys) w/o deducting the amount we personally pay toward shipping to the buyer. How is that fair for me to be charged on shipping I'm already paying for?! Can anyone explain this?

How do you report someone for stealing a listing photo. I've had this happen in the past. I've called eBay and they were no help on the phone. They spent more time confusing themselves than helping me. It's in THEIR policies that you can't use another sellers' photos. (My seller ID is even left in the photos people have lifted!) With many of these products, it's hard to get a decent picture. It's pretty upsetting when you see someone make NO effort to take a picture of an item you had to struggle photographing.

how do I change the price an invoice?

Sold a antique doll to a lady in NH.  She then shipped it to someone in Russia.  I am getting these threatening messages from the 3rd party because it is broke. She admitted that the lady (exporter) opened it and put something else in my box, but it was still my fault it was broke.  She is asking for extra things for me to buy  (like antique doll eyes, etc.) to make up for the loss.  I insured it going to NH out of my own pocket. I always do with fragile items. Thanks the Lord for that.  She is refusing to send it to the exporter, but has shown pictures of breakage. However the doll is turned face down and I cannot tell if it is the same doll. The body is perfect which is rare for this age of doll.  I am wondering if it was not the body she wanted to start with....because she is asking for doll eyes for other doll heads she has, as a make up for the loss.  She said she is going to report me to some Russian doll site here on ebay so that she can black ball me for further purchases.  It was shipped way back 5/17.  And she is just now asking for refund.  Has anyone heard about this group and since ebay said she is way to late to report the damage, and it is not up to me to take care of it that she needs to go back to the exporter and have her file a claim. Ebay said quit talking to her. She keeps sending me messages and it is driving me crazy, as I am an honest seller.  Over 3,000 feedbacks, and most say "great wrapping, secure wrapping, fantastic wrapper etc.  All good things about wrapping"  and I do try to do my best to insure items are safe and I pay out of my own pocket to insure all fragile items.  What can I do and do you know about this Russian Doll group that she is going to black ball me in is all about???  Thanks so much, it is bothering me.  Dee
