I purchased an item on eBay 12/29/2016.
I check "My eBay" only to discover this:
"Estimated delivery Wed, Jan 18 - Wed, Mar 28"
That's a three month delivery window???
What if I never receive it? It will be long beyond eBay's displayable windows.

I wonder if eBay's computer algorithm has a problem? I bought a postcard from a seller in New Jersey and eBay gave me a delivery spread of January 9 thru the 15th. It showed up yesterday. I would give eBay a call and ask them about it. Unless your item is coming by dugout canoe from the other side of the globe that is.

Similar is occurring with me, 5 weeks elapsed, then I get a note "Item Posted"
it was supposed to be registered, but no tracking number.
Emails to vendor not answered.

I wish eBay wouldn't show those estimates for items without tracking numbers. There are so many things that can effect/delay mail arrival times. Especially for items going overseas!

eBay's delivery times are kind of a joke. But the problem with the spread given is that it carries past eBay's 45 day timeline for opening a nondelivery dispute and also past the 60 day timeline for leaving feedback. Definitely time to call eBay and just hope you don't spend an hour fighting with the customer service folks before giving up. And after that they'll tell you the only sure cure is to cancel your purchase.

There must be some mistake, eBay's offers "Handling Times" from 1 day to 30 days. There are no other choices available to sellers.

The sellers are in China. 45 to 60 days is common.
