Another Red Dot Auction


Red Dot


It wasn't me who asked the question, but I'm still trying to figure out the seller's point. Any hints?

Quoting from the ad:

Q: You send to Brazil? Thank you.

A: Sorry, probably not for something this valuable.

What are insurances for anyway?


It wasn't me who asked the question

It probably was Gileno.


"Ships to: United States"

He's probably too lazy to setup international shippment and tried to find an excuse. Also, he was too lazy to find a *good* excuse.

Just my theory ;-).


That's great for American buyers, as domestic auctions usually reach lower prices than they would do otherwise. I agree about him being lazy about giving a good excuse. He could have simply said he didn't ship abroad or was not willing to do so. The way he's put it implies he won't ship to Brazil because this sounds like a risky business to him.


Auction is over. Sold for $455.


If I'm not wrong, we're talking about this one

Yes. I did not realize that it was also listed in the MoHPC advertisement section.
