General Lee has another Pearl Harbor Flag, Hmmmmmmm

Recommended Posts

I also called him out on a Civil war slave pennant and said he would look into it - it sold and didn't get back - I agree totally - buyer beware in these times today!!

Everyone should file a report on this item.

 

Everyone!

 

People who knowingly sell fakes are the worst kind of people.

 

Let he who has not committed this sin cast the first stone!

 

Done!

I emailed them as well and very politely explained that this is civilian not an official Military issue flag.

 

That I doubt sailors of the Utah brought their own flags from home.

 

Instead of talk let’s act and see what happens.

Of the several similar flags that he has posted in the past, they always seem to sell in the thousands. He keeps getting away with it so he'll keep doing it. Yes very sad for the "winner". Again, no provenance, just a comment that the family said his middle name was Craig. My favorite part about this one is the photo stapled to the flag. The staple is shiny and new, looks like it was done yesterday.

The person who buys this should do there homework -  they lost their money

I'm not letting General Lee off the hook as I have called him out on a few things and he only got back once and said his company will check it out - yawn

He has also sold an endless supply of WW1 trench clubs, most look like were made from antique table legs.

ebay only cares about the fee's they make from him selling crap - not all his stuff is crap but there is a fair amount

I understand why you say that but it isn’t true. 

How many eBayers do I know that have been suspended ? 

Quite a few and quite a few permanently suspended.

We all need to flag.

A pattern will open eyes.

I know someone who had to take an eBay course because they listed an 1870s tintype in the Civil War section and claimed it was from 1864.

You have to be more clever than they are.

Catch them in a policy violation. 

Its clear they are crooked so what other crooked things are they willing to do?

 I took a few minutes and went on Ebay and looked at his active listings. It is simply amazing the amount of crap he has for sell, both military related and non military. Some of the stuff is almost laughable!! Granted not all is bad, but where there is one bad apple there's usually more so caution needs to be taken. This goes to show you the amount of knowledge and experience the average Ebay buyer or online auction buyer has verses folks who are very active in their hobby and are members of forums or have close relationships with knowledgeable collectors and constantly want to learn. I've been beating the drum about this for years now when it comes to online auction houses (there are many!!) which have become dumping grounds for junk that dealers cannot sell at shows or simply don't want to put on their websites for fear they would be called out for selling this crap!! 

A lot of his items reminds me of the crap sold at a large auction house in Central Ohio on a regular basis. Here is a prefect example of a total piece of made up fantasy junk!! Look at the number of bids for this baby!!

Keep doing it.

Catch them in a violation that is more concrete.

Will they do a deal off eBay that is initiated on eBay?

That will get you in trouble.

I asked General Lee about more details on the NC knife and got nothing back yet - maybe he thinks I'm setting a  trap?
