Sorry., I Need To Vent About An Ebay Transaction.

The Cheerio cent still sells at a premium for some reason.

I agree that it is just an uncirculated cent, and doesn't have the rarity of the dollar that ended up being a variation. That is why the implication that it was opened and resealed even more outlandish.

idk...just annoyed by a silly small dollar transaction return. The kind that after postage is refunded, costs you money.

Thanks for letting me vent.

So I sold a 2000 Cheerios cent on ebay in January that I had in my collection for over two decades. Sent and received by the buyer on Jan 15th.

Yesterday, buyer gives me positive feedback...but it says "I got what I paid for"

Then the buyer requests a refund...stating that the cent was defective.

Claims that I removed the cent and resealed on the original card with a new different piece of plastic. I guess he thought I really wanted that 2000 Cheerio cent...and replaced it with a mint state replacement 2000 cent.

And with Ebay, I had no choice but to agree to the return.

I normally don't have many problems, but really...defective...Ok off my soap box

I saw your thread while looking around in the forum...and thought.....

I should have seen if you wanted to buy the masonic counterstamp I just sold on ebay before I offered it there.

And then I realized you bought it from me on ebay..gif" class="inlineimg" alt="" title="" />

Looking forward to seeing that one added to your thread by the end of the week.

Back in the 80s, I used to be a paper boy for the Detroit News. I was in about 4th grade, and a customer or two would pay in a foreign coin when they were short for the week.

One of them paid me in a 1986 $100 golden colored peso coin from Mexico. I thought I was rich...not so much

Another gave me a 1916 10 centimes coin from France. I kept both for years...and not until I got older did I realize that this one was better than a dime, since it was silver.

At that age, I caught a little bit of the bug...and I went into a coin and comic store and overpaid for a steel penny and a common mercury dime. They were my prized possessions.

So the customers accidentally gave me the bug...but after hearing I liked coins, a great uncle of mine gave me his old collection. Nothing crazy...A Peace Dollar, a Morgan, a Liberty nickel and some others all glued to piece of card board. But that is when the hobby stuck with me.

Wow!!!!

My secret santa gift came today.

A BU Peace Dollar. Thank you secret Santa. It won't be going into my Peace Dollar album...I sold that set a few months ago to concentrate on classic commemoratives...but it is a beautiful example and has bumped its way into my 7070 type set.

Thank you for your generosity

Very Cool.

I grew up in Detroit...albeit, about 30 year after this token medal would have been minted.

The cool part is that it has the skyline before one of the most recognizable buildings, in the current Detroit skyline, was built.

The Renaissance Center was built near the shores of the Detroit River in the 70s.

Thanks for sharing.

Even though I somehow ended up on the naughty list last year, and did not get a gift...I would like to be included again this year.

The holidays are always more about the giving, than the receiving.

PM will be sent shortly.

with molydeii's advice. To kickstart, I am going to list the last trade up for sale on Ebay. I am going to keep it intact. Basically, trading the lot to someone for cash.

With the cash, I am going to buy one item to trade. Basically, trading the cash for the next trade offering of my choosing.




And if this doesn't work...I will finally let the RIP.

Yeah...It is a large lot. That could be why there has been no interest yet.

Good suggestion, but it is what was sent to me from the last trade from the original.

So I am torn...I wanted to restart the trade using it.

I guess the other option would be to sell the lot, buy something with the money and start it with the bought coin.

I will probably wait a little longer, but will have to look into some other options if it continues to flounder.

Thanks for the input.

Also...this is an international trade experiment, so don't be shy if your are from outside the USA.

One of my early trades was with CCF's favorite member from Turkey, and I made several trades to Australia.

Remember...I am open to any numismatic item of equal or greater value...No one has anything collecting dust somewhere that they want to trade for this smorgasbord of coins?
