Here is what the seller sent. Sounds like fiction to me:
I have to tell you that I also have other serious offers that I have to consider. The price I hope to obtain is 1900 Euros (around $2,250.00 US Dollars). The shipping and insurance costs are included in the total price. I have a special discount for shipping due to the several packages I ship every month. I could use it for this transaction aswell. The sign is here with me in Spain. My business is antiques. I have 2 antiques shops in the south of Spain: one in Sevilla, here, and the other in Valencia. I usually ship 3-4 large fragile antique furniture items every week together with many other smaller items. I have costumers in most countries from western Europe, U.S.A., Canada, South Africa, etc... I'm very experienced so don't worry about the shipping. The sign would suffer no damage durring shipping. I have never ever had any problems with my goods while shipping.
I will take care of the shipping process. The sign will be professionally packed, triple-boxed and shipped insured via Air Cargo.
If you agree with this price let me know a.s.a.p and I will be more than glad to start this transaction with you. I would even end the auction earlier if you agree with the price.
Look forward to hearing from you...
