I'm aware that sellers can block bidding from specific eBayers; you can read about it in the sellers section. But, I don't know the seller (--although my email reply [to their reply] was a little cheeky; but tongue-in-cheek, not rude... )

Anyone every had this message come up upon entering a bid:

! Seller isn't accepting your bid
Unfortunately, the seller can't accept your bid on this item. This can happen for a couple of reasons. For example, the seller may have limited the number of items you can buy in a specific time period. Learn more.

I think (without searching finished auctions) it was listed at about £1650, perhaps a couple of time (maybe more), before he dropped the price; again it might have listed a couple of times.

I think, pretty consistently (again without looking thro' notebooks etc), for the past ten years (on eBay that is) prices for full sets have remained fairly static. On open auctions (sometimes with reserves) bidding has always climbed quite quickly to £1000, before petering out. The price realised feels pretty right.

It's been a long, long time since someone successfully sold a complete 1st/1st HoME set on eBay. Andy housed these in some nice DM slipcases too. Price no great surprise, but interesting to note.

Actually, I've no clue as to whether some might view this as a "Wonders" item. Anyway, in flagrant breach of copyright I would suggest...

Okay guys, just a reminder --resident Thain Urulókë has seen fit to start a rival thread entitled Interesting eBay Auctions (here).

Everyone is reminded that the new "interesting" thread, from now & moving forward, is for auctions of genuine interest (i.e. one might want to buy such an item); & this thread is now reserved only for "head scratching" auctions (as Urulókë terms it!) i.e. rubbish!
