I have tested this with a lot of my own auctions and it always worked. I always offer my items with Buy-it-now & Best Offer and after the auction I print a copy for my records. And the price is always the one I have accepted before. So for me it works fine.

I'm not sure if that's correct Laurin666. When it just has "Price", that doesn't confirm it sold.

See the two images below: the first image shows a finished auction summary (sans photographs, etc); the second image, after you click further on "See original listing", confirms that it sold. Buy-it-now & Best Offer listings seem to present slightly differently, generally; but in the example I gave above, eBay is positively confirming that a price was accepted i.e. it states "£285" followed by "Best Offer accepted". Yes/no? The image you show doesn't, I don't think, confirm anything regarding the full £285 price. If you click on "See original auction" it states "Sold for" (so the item definitely sold); but it has the strike through & "Best Offer accepted". Again, this doesn't confirm what price it sold for.

Urulöké, in the first example I gave (post #1), is that £285 a confirmed price then; or is the TCG finished auction function not working? Basically, £285 (in the example) is clearly not a "Best Offer accepted" (which eBay is positively confirming); as £285 was the full Buy-it-now auction price. A Best Offer would have to be below this, by definition.

In the second example I've given, this listing had the option of Best Offer (full price was £27.99) as with example one (the presentation of these two listings in my eBay Watch List "Ended" is identical); but there is no strike through of the price (i.e. £27.99). If the first example had indeed gone for the full price, then it should, surely, present (now that it's finished) in the same way as the example two?

You can still make the accepted price visible if you print the original offer.

I'd stick it on eBay (with shipping worldwide). If you make people here aware of the auction, and perhaps on other Tolkien sites also, I would have thought you will get a fair market price for it at auction. I'd probably even throw a bid in myself :)
