Your response is a little harsh. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I am sure many on this forum have in hindsight thought "why did I pay that much" for some items in our collections. Some on this forum who are sellers are also shocked when bidding is much higher than expected. The hobby is predicated upon all of us grossly over paying for little bits of cardboard with ink on them.
The seller of this item should have of course disclosed where the item came from. It would be surprising if the seller was unaware of it's origin. I must confess I find the seller's auctions hard to ignore as there are quite often some unique and interesting items. That being said the seller has long been known to be optomistic with the grades given in their listings. What has always confused me with this seller is the high prices that are realized for items that show poorly or incompletely in the scans they provide. There seems to be a group of buyers that will over pay (in my opinion) with this seller on a regular basis.
