    I was wondering the same thing. All of the eBay inventory was pulled down suddenly and hasn't been relisted.

    I will take the blame on this one. In April of 2022 I was searching for a specific note. It showed up on William Lang’s EBay account. It was also listed on Bills stamps. The note was listed at an outrageous price. After another internet search I found his shop number. I called it on a Saturday morning thinking I would leave a message. A lady answered explained Bill passed. She stated she was a paralegal for his estate. I inquired about buying the note with what I thought was a fair offer. She said she would contact the estate attorney on Monday with a yes or no answer on my offer. To my surprise the offer was accepted ( fair market) I thought. I was told to make out the check to William Lang estate, no shipping or insurance charge( shocked I was) . I mailed off the check. 5 days later received a call check cleared and note was on its way with tracking number. I received the PMG graded note and immediately went shopping for other notes on his page. I found everything was scrubbed from the internet. I tried calling the para legal. She said that they estate was being disposed of by other means, nothing else was available. EBay was gone, Bill Lang Stamps gone, shop information scrubbed from internet. But what I scored was a PMG $2.00 bill inverted third print PMG 64 EPQ. Well below auction values. That my friends is the story.
