I have a feeling that maybe it's not worth what it initially went for?.. the first auction could have been bid up way over the estimated value by a couple of inexperienced collectors, of which the winner then deciding not to pay up.

Then when the seller relisted it those inexperienced bidders weren't present so it went for about what it's really worth.

Iv'e seen similar to this happen before multiple times, but I don't know about the value of this MOC so I could be totally wrong.

Yes maybe it got to expensive, so the buyer would not pay, but then why bid so much :? can't the buyer not get bad feedback for not paying ? :?

I found an afa sold for £580 so maybe the first price was to expensive since some buyers will pay more for afa :?

Yeah that's my guess is a couple of bidders went a little crazy with it, buyers know though they can pretty much get away with murder on ebay :lol: iv'e had tons of buyers over the years win things then not bother paying or responding to messages, some of them just don't care and don't have the courtesy to let you know they can't pay so you can get it relisted, so they leave you hanging for days when you really need the money. Plus buyers also know sellers can't leave them neg feedback, only positive can be left and you're also not allowed to say any bad comments in the feedback, I did that once a while back to let everyone know a certain buyer was a deadbeat non-payer and ebay removed my feedback. :lol:

That is so sad, that some buyers are like that and ebay protect them :evil:

It's pretty awful, it's created more of a scam culture on ebay because of this policy, a scammer knows they can try and outright scam sellers and when the seller tries to let others know what they've done then they get the feedback's removed. :evil:
