Looks like a buyer backed out after an offer was submitted.

Or a sleezy marketing ploy, A new uneducated buyer searching completed sales will see one sold recently for that price and jump on this one. These types of sellers will stop at nothing.

I don't buy(on (Ebay) my own stuff for a couple of reasons:
1. Seller won't ship big items
2. Poor communication with Seller
3. Owning something once is enough(how many of you have
had the experience of "reuniting" with an Ex.(not
that I possessed or "Owned" her...it was more like
she was possessed and "owned" me.
Is this enough "humor" for one old man(me)?
Good luck to all of you today and remember..."It's All Just Stuff". Dave

Ebay is starting to remove items that don't sell for long periods, probably just a back door way to get around that, not too dishonest if there is such a thing
