Anyone noticed this auction?
This Hobbit has been advertised 3 times and every times it appears to sell it gets readvertised almost instantly afterwards!?!?!?
Wonder what is going on there then

I have noticed. Exactly the same photograph & same description. When it happened once I just thought the original sale had fallen through; non-payment, etc. But, as you say, it's now been listed multiple times, so payment failure seems unlikely. All in, a bit suspicious...

This seller has been on my radar for quite some time.

Here's another one:

J.R.R .Tolkien, The Hobbit 1st Deluxe, 1976 edition w/slipcase (eBay ID: frank55550_0)

This listed just three days ago (The seller has relisted this item or one like this), but it's unclear if this is the same copy. (EDIT: The seller has just confirmed it is the same copy, relisted due to non-payment.)

There is also another copy, just about to end, with a suspiciously similar photograph:

The Hobbit or There and Back Again Deluxe Edition 1976 1st Impression (eBay ID: lukysingh2013)

Nice books, but look at how similar those photos are below.

Yep
maybe we need to keep a list of these ?
Why would you relist within 1 days / 3days etc . There is no way the ebay resolution process has taken place thus these sellers have lost there fees ? Why would you anyone do that ?
It just doesnt sound right?
