What should I do with this ebay issue?

On Friday, I purchased a coin on ebay. It is certified as an 1837 Small Date Half Dime by PCGS. It was listed on ebay as such. But the coin is actually a dime. The price was fair for a dime, and I am slowly building a collection of certification errors. I got on ebay to check the shipping status today, only to find that the seller has updated the listing as a dime, and for a higher price! My purchase transaction is still in "processing" status at my bank. Neither the seller nor ebay has contacted me to say the transaction was cancelled.

    Definetly contact the seller first and ask them what's up.
    I'm sure you'll find out.
    If not you can call ebay.
    It will probably take a week for your funds to come back to you if that's what's going to happen.
    Good luck. I'm sure you'll be fine.

    Send the seller a polite message asking if they canceled the sale and why the coin is listed again.

    I see it sold for $448.99 and now is "Out of Stock" at $728.99. I agree with messaging the seller and possibly letting PCGS know about the error.
