Sorry, but that is a silly question.
You have just notified all the Mdina collectors here who might have otherwise missed it, thus increasing your likely competition.

Three Wise Women would have asked for directions, arrived on time, delivered the baby, cleaned the stables and made a casserole...

And there WOULD have been peace on earth.

Unless he is the seller...in which case...quite clever really.  No reason to think that though, apart from the above post, and the item description both have a lot of "..."  ;)

One would hope it was a question asked in all innocence - the charger is hardly a hidden gem.

Generally people prefer not to comment on live auctions except perhaps to use them as illustrative examples for ID purposes

Apologies Scotty112 - I didn't realise you were new (I'm sure there's another scotty with numbers and I thought it was them) - I didn't say;

"Welcome to the gmb". :)

I'm afraid we do not tend to discuss live auctions or prices/values here. Discussion of an auction might be unfair to the seller or to potential bidders, and valuations are far too subjective.

Don't worry! You can modify posts for an hour after first posting them, but after that we need a moderator to do it for us.

You're new - and everybody makes mistakes. I've made tons and tons of them. ;)

This is a forum of (mostly) collectors, none of us would normally dream of telling everybody here what we are after before the auction.
We're delighted to discuss the glass... afterwards!

It wasn't a mistake to ask for help and wanting to buy the charger for your wife is a lovely gesture. I think you just have to decide how much you want to spend and bid that amount. It won't go cheaply. There is a round one for sale online for 600, just as an example

And I was a bit "snippy" because I was interested in it ,and really wanted it kept as quiet as possible.
Not a snowflake's chance now.  :'(
(I probably didn't have a snowflake's chance before, but I didn't know it then!  ;))

Sorry if I seemed very rude.
