Sandie's comment from the "sleeves"-Thread fits surely better here :wink:

On a related tangent amongst today's e-mail funnies I was sent this E-Bay ad: http://cgi.ebay.com.au/VY-VZ-HSV-SS-WRECKING-CAR-DAMAGED-MANUAL-LEATHER-18-/180630474612?pt=AU_Cars&hash=item2a0e6a4f74

Read the advert thoroughly.

Coincedently we had in our plate-collector-thread the same topic. About auction with misleading descriptions (for a while there wre auction, where an expensive mobile-phone is described, and at last it was written, that the auction is only for the box.

An always returning problem in our plate-collector-scene are faked plates (over 90% of offered plates from the Nazi-time are fakes for example). Actually there is an idiot, who offers selfmade "made for movie"-plates like
http://www.imcdb.org/vehicle_9467-Opel-Manta-GT-E-1983.html
More impudent/problematical are the repros as
http://cgi.ebay.de/2stk-Kennzeichen-Angela-Merkel-Dienstwagen-Berlin-/120692542250?pt=Transportwesen&hash=item1c19d60b2a also descibed as movie-prop-plates. The official registration-seals are destroyed (otherwise you'll get really trouble), but in our opinion it's not correct.
Absolute suspicous is, that the guy, who offeres this plate
http://cgi.ebay.de/1Kennzeichen-Nummernschild-Bundesprasident-0-1-/280638213532?pt=Transportwesen&hash=item4157574d9c has recently bought one of these faked "made for movie-President's" plate.

But I will not say anything bad about this guy (a "lonsesome cowboy", who is not interested in other contacts to plate-freaks), because this evening he has bought my own scrap for a unbelieveable price :grin:
http://cgi.ebay.de/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=310298921562&ssPageName=STRK:M- ESOX:IT
and had pushed up the price for annother (rather worthless) plate:
http://cgi.ebay.de/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=310298918244&ssPageName=STRK:M- ESOX:IT

To come back to the topic above, from some plate-freaks I've heard the reproach, that my auctions were also presented misleadingly, as there are other plates to see, which are not meant. But I disagree, as I've told in the description, what a plate is included.
It was really not my intention to make money (and for sure not so much) with the stuff, it should have been just a hidden signal to other plate-freaks for the X-plate (hidden on the right). This is a real hyper-rare rarity (from NATO-commanded German Army-troops) and normally never to get anywhere. For sure I will never put it to eBay. Not only for the trouble, I could come in with that, also for the reason, that I'm not interested in money, I only want to swap it - but only for some very specific rarities. There are some collector's keen on my X, but until know noone can offer that, what I want to have: plates from the West German embassy in the DDR and/or from in the DDR accredited West German journalists. :wink:

Absurd overpriced. Not trustworthy due the too many spelling errors. The own homepage is correct - maybe he had found someone, who can write.

If someone is seriously interested, let me know. It's not far from me.

Sorry, it's not complete (an early 70ies record-cover).

The eBay-seller has used it for covering important literature - a Dutch porno magazine :grin:

My Dutch friend Pim had swapped it last Sunday with a Norwegian instruction manual. He had two of this issue. But unfortunately not of his Intourist-brochure :sad:
