    This one in the UK

    Because if you are, stop. Despite the cunning yarn spun in the description, this is a modern fake. See e3nine's handy guide.

    Unfortunately it's a private listing and the bidders can't be contacted in eBay's new system anyway. But if any of you are the high bidder you might want to think about withdrawing your bid..

    Yup, total fake. No factory applied stickers & grey border at the top of the window = knock off.
    Reported. I urge others to do the same.

    I sent the seller this message:
    They sent this back:
    The auction has now been cancelled; "The seller ended this listing early because of an error in the listing."
    Chalk one up for the good guys. :)

    Curious. I hadn't bothered messaging the seller as every time I've done it before (politely, even) I've had fairly aggressive e-mails in response - called names, a liar etc. Gets tedious.

    She does sound a bit crazy though.

    she was smart to take it down...but it'll probably be relisted with the stickers applied and box errors covered up. :rolleyes2
