"Rational buyer" and where do you find them ?????
Do you mean "not in this thread" or "not on this board" which includes yourself(?) Pretty insulting, which seems to be the intent.
A SIDE NOTE ----There are no $1,000 stamps that fit into a 1941-1959 Scott International.
That's about as likely as 5000 80c Franco stamps being here. Neither is realistic in this case. Read that description, request scans.
It would be interesting to see a few scans ,even a few dozen mint complete sets of that period can turn that offer into a good deal.
Of course. But that's assuming the seller has the wherewithal to find such material within a few scans. And perhaps a buyer would return it saying the scans were misleading, that the selected scans made the overall collection look better than it really is.
So, has anyone even asked the seller for scans? Or is this just another post on eBay
sellers that are not the professionals that you don't trust anyway?
If the seller does not make things easy for himself to sell things, ignore him and move on. Floortrader apparently expects nothing but the very worst case, which is telling to me. Why are others assuming a possible best case for themselves to get a steal? That's also telling. There are many other album lots available after all.
