How (not) to sell a damaged dump

Most collectors would call this the top of a smashed dump, not a 'rare little half dump' !  The seller does not want to accept it is a broken fragment, though.

I only have one word for the seller - unbelievable - it is clearly obvious it is the top of one.

Well, the description is fairly accurate - it definitely is rare!

Reminds me of Monty Python:

"Half a bee, philosophically
Must, ipso facto, half not be
But half the bee has got to be
A vis-a-vis its entity, d'you see?

But can a bee be said to be
Or not to be an entire bee
When half the bee is not a bee
Due to some ancient injury?"

Hello & Welcome to the Board! Sometimes my replies are short & succinct, other times lengthy. Apologies in advance if they are not to your satisfaction; my main concern is to be accurate for posterity & to share my limited knowledge
