He had to pay to ship it.

He brought in $50.


Why would anybody sell money for less than face value?

It's all stolen and you stumbled on a money laundering operation?

Technically it is illegal to sell money for less than face value. We can't auction coins or paper currency for less than face value. For less than that, you should just deposit it in the bank.

It happens all the time at auction. A 1923 silver dollar is still technically only worth $1 as a coin. But to a collector or silver hoarder, it is worth way more.

I get it if it is of collector value. But to sell a roll of coins for less or equal than what they are worth............. well................

Just seems like he didn't get as high of bids as he wanted. Should have put a reserve, although sometimes people won't bid on items.

Still pretty dumb...

He gets free (to him) shipping somehow. He was getting $50 for his $50 at the minimum (minus his Ebay fees). He figured it would get a few more bids than it did. I am no Detective, but I am pretty smrt.



P.S. He is not even close to the stupidest Ebay-er ever.

The plastic tube, foam and box are worth at least $.05, WIN, for the buyer.
