Why would a seller continue to use photographs of items similar to merchandise they reportedly have in their possession? Why not use the originals? One cannot help but suspect the seller is simply fishing for high bids on items they know they can then purchase for less elsewhere.

It's an Alan-53 Auction. He always lists things with pictures of different items. Wouldn't touch one of his auctions with a ten foot pole.

And I notice that the 3 sold were for 125 quid. A cynical observer might think they were trying to catch out the unwary by getting a few sales under the belt and jacking the price. You would have to be pretty dumb, though...
