    I've sold a couple of larger and oriented specimens in the past, but no, not as a rule. The one in the chest is a nice one. Over 35-grams with a nice bit of fusion crust, found in the only "Fossil Strewn Field," (Gold Basin), in the United States. I love me some space rocks! Sometimes I just hold them and ponder where they have been.

    I took another look. I'd be afraid someone would buy it, take a few choice pieces for themselves, then say it wasn't as described and want a refund. You're out the shipping and the good pieces. I'd be leery of this type of listing myself. Just saying. Good luck.

    I have photos and the itemized appraisal list, so I'm not that worried on THAT end. However, my wife just came in with a CENSORED-eating grin on her face and said, "Three-days and no bids, tick-tock!"

    By not documenting the photos with they buyer and eBay or at the very least photographing the appraisal (independent appraisal - not just your inventory list and what you value it as) and providing that documentation as part of the listing, a buyer absolutely can dispute it as not being as described. It would be your word against theirs. Guess what? eBay will side with the buyer. You'll be out the shipping and the choice pieces. All they need to do is send back what you photographed/documented as part of the listing. These "mystery" listings should really be avoided.

    I guess I have more faith in people Diver_Down. Surely you don't know anyone that would do that? Besides, I'm just crazy enough to go to their house with my crazy cousin the lawyer, a local LEO, and a very bad attitude.

    I almost hit the button just to get the ball rolling.....But then I thought,"what if no one else bids? I'm not sure I have enough in paypal to cover it"

    And on the scammers? We all hear stories..I sell a little of anything and everything. I've only ever had 2 scammers one for new software and another on a pocket watch.. and Ebay is really helpful in those cases. You may spend hours on the phone but....I also sell everything as is. The "not as described" doesn't hold too much weight if there are pictures of everything or buying a "mystery chest". People will try and Ebay help isn't dumb to that game.

    Before someone bids you could put" as-is not return" because of the items.

    I think a few people on here, including myself, are watching this closely in anticipation of bidding on it.

    Well, I just packed it all up. I'm excited, and a little sad. As I was packing up the items I was thinking about the days I found them, and how excited I was to pull them out of the hole. Some of the items brought back memories of great hunting buddies over the years, and just how much pleasure I have gotten from our hobby. As I packed away the Arizona arrowheads for instance, I could feel the early morning Zona sun on my back again, and smell the redolent of the desert. Amazing!

    Whoever wins this auction is going to get a lot of stuff, and my hope is they will appreciate the research, and hours of detecting and hiking that went into their discovery. I was trying to calculate the number of pulltab, nail, and canslaw targets dug to reveal all the treasure in the chest, but the number is in the thousands and I got tired, sore, and sweaty just thinking about it! Five bids so far, with two-days left. I'm pretty happy, and my better half hasn't said a word since yesterday!!!
