I have a couple of books signed by comic book artist Al Hartley. Yankee Doddle books. Trying to figure out value.

Signed Al Hartley Book

Question:

 

Seller listed a BIN auction at a 75% discount...I chose the BIN and purchased the auction on Jan 28th (5 days into a 6 day BIN).

 

Paid via Paypal when I received the invoice from the seller Jan 28th

 

I received  a "Your order has been shipped! 16804" notification with a tracking number. on Jan 29th

 

He left me positive feedback!

 

Feb 3 I get a phone call at home from the seller saying he forgot he "gifted the items to his neice at Christmas" so they are no longer in his posession...seems odd to have pictures sitting around for more than a month and consciously list an auction knowing you don't have the items anymore...???

 

Feb 3 he refunds the purchase price, and Pitney Bowes refunds the shipping(so I'm assuming they were in transit to me)...all money returned.

 

BUT...the items in the auction, which was heavily discounted by the seller from the original listing amount, are worth 5x-10x what the auction sold for.

 

To me it sounds like he got a better offer for more money from somebody AFTER the auction was listed...for 5 of 6 days of the BIN...sold, paid for, and, apparently,  shipped!

 

If he did not have the items it is FRAUD to list the items(with 10 pictures), it is FRAUD to receive money for a non-existant item, and it is MAIL FRAUD to use the USPS to commit a criminal act.

 

I WANT the items I purchased, following all eBAY rules...

 

What is my recourse?

Need help with (I think) a shoo-fly rocker. The bottom is stamped "D W Lynch." I'm not sure what the age and worth are. I can't find anything on

D W Lynch in a google search either.

Vintage or Primitive?? Need Help with

I am looking to identify this grandfather clock.  Need some work down on it but not sure what it is. 

Hand writing in pencil on the back says Duckworth or duckwarth.  May have been bought in 1971 or worked on then.
