Yeh, if it's an auction, & you go into the listing, it states "Winning bidder". If it was a Buy-it-now (whether with a Best offer option, or not), it states "Sold for". But you're right, you have to click one step further (on "See original listing") before it reveals the price it sold for (which for offers is often less than the "Price"), rather than the just the price it listed at. And, sometimes you get into that bit, & it didn't sell at all. Or, at least, if it doesn't state "Sold for" --& I always assume it didn't.

It's all pretty annoying actually. It's the same when you search for completed auctions by price & you have to scroll through hundreds of red (i.e. auctions that finished with no bidders) listings, while trying to catch the auctions which actually sold something! Why would I want to look at all the items that didn't sell?; at least when performing this search. Granted, you should be able to find them somewhere, but not when you want a list of top selling Tolkien, for example.
