Is this the highest eBay "make me an offer" ever ?

Recommended Posts

I just found out (and I'm sure others did too) this very unusual auction from ericowazamono. One can get the lot for 1,5 million dollars. That's by a huge margin the highest auction I've ever seen on the site. I can count 18 swords on the pictures.

 

I was wondering if someone had some context about this massive sale. Is the seller suddenly stopping his activity ?

Eric knows his stuff. He's a careful and shrewd buyer.
I expect this is more of an advert for his business. Showing that he has stock. People looking would contact him directly. I doubt he is expecting the listing to sell. Just an "I'm still here, have lots of good stuff"
Just my guess and 2c.

I see, thanks for the explanation. This completely makes sense.

Probably an advertisement. He is French, so write him in French and ask.

   When I have something to sell, he sometimes buys from me. He is very shrewd and can squeeze a dime into 3 nickles.

He did me a good deal once, but not on Ebay.

 

Be careful with Ebay and emailing about deals, they watch. 

 

Got another this week, thats no2, jeez, they made £1000s out of me over the years

Francois, it is not uncommon for sellers to do this.  By putting a huge price and then "or best offer", their listing ends up on the top of the page if the buyer searches from most to least expensive.  I have seen this done with many different items, like collectible guitars.

In regards to "is this the highest make an offer ever".  The highest bid I've personally seen is $7 Million for a kidney.  The auction was taken down shortly after because it violated Ebay's rules against selling body parts.  That was back in the early 2000's.
