Does anyone know why this is going so high?
There's no way that's real.
Bidding jumped from $479 to $6,150 from a bidder with (0) history....sounds legit
Sold for $6,250, but something's fishy about this one.
"Coinsandpaper" is a good seller, probably a glitch in the system.
It's been re-listed.https://www.ebay.com/itm/1899-2-PCGS-Currency-35-Silver-Certificate-Mini-Port-Hole-Choice-Very-Fine-Note/233888990839?hash=item3674dec677:g:ZK0AAOSwNCtgENJS
I guess if someone made a crazy high bid on it, and "coinsandpaper" did not want to cancel a bid as that does not usually work out well, he decided to just re-run it.
It took 2 bidders to get it that high....maybe someone is/was screwing around with the seller?
I've found him fair on descriptions with a minimum of games.
I've seen some pretty wacky bidding wars on typically GEM grades of common/modern World banknotes but nothing like that (& pre-Covid).
