FYI: I have saved all listings of early color tv sets and prewar tv sets since 2005, in total 61 listings. If you have questions, feel free to email me.

Had to be a scam, The seller claimed to have a feedback of 473, yet when you look it only shows two feedbacks, one in 2003, the other 2004. I have seen this on car auctions where you can buy an original 1967 Mustang or 1970 Dodge Challenger with only 50,000 miles for $7,200 buy it now at a different email address.

Not a scam. I know the seller and the set is real. He just isn't very good with his Ebay listings. I suggested that he list it in another category with better photos. I suspect that's why he ended the auction and that you'll see it again soon.

I did not mean to say that london27 was behind it. The legit auctions somehow get hijacked by someone else who runs the scam. I meant no disrespect to london27.

Same here. I figured it was a hijacked account, and the fraudster did a search to see what would sell fast. My friend had somebody steal his password by some kind of fake eMail, then next day, he found that he had about 50 digital cameras listed for Buy-It-Now with somebody else' PayPal account overseas. He caught it in time, but this happenes all the time!

$10K buy-it-now... Man-alive; they'll beat a path to his door and get in a fist fight on his porch to grab the set for that low price!

In all seriousness, he really should get someone to help out with some good photos. The photo situation as it stands will keep the price low, which is good for AK-ers who now know the seller is OK through Steve's acknowledgement, and will trust in bidding. But nobody's going to bid based on the photos alone, I think.

We don't know what the reserve is. The buy it now price is high, but remember that old TV prices have gone up dramatically since the last CT-100 was sold. The CBS RX-90 with a questionable tube went for $8,300, and the last few prewar sets have sold for almost double the prices they got last year. Who knows what this one will go for. It may bring only $3k, but it could go much higher.

It says right in the listing "It is untested, and its picture tube is not good."
