Second link goes to the same as the first one - maybe I should tidy up this thread? And maybe I should think about moderating the comment: "pull their attributions out of the rears" - which may be what many folk believe, but the sellers may just be going on what they have been told by others.
Has anyone informed the seller of the truth about the age of the Strathearn weight, or asked where their information was obtained?
I do find eBay sellers' descriptions very frustrating at times but it's just part of the way things are, unless attempts are made to educate them. That, of course, is a subject we have touched on several times in the board, and not just for paperweights. And as we know, with some sellers it makes no difference to them whatever we might say, even if backed up with links to sites showing details.
