Apple-1 listed on eBay starting @ $200k

Someone has listed an Apple-1 on eBay from The Netherlands with a starting bid of $200k:

https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F352777588627

 

They claim it’s completely original and operational with accessories and manuals. They have shared one very low resolution photo and the seller has recently created their eBay account with no ratings.

Hey, my Mimeo looks just like that ...

Kinda hard to bid on a single photo with no authenticity.  Good luck to the seller...

Good find. It’s not just the photo, but also the description of the lot that has been copied verbatim. There are two possibilities:

 

  1. Its a scam
  2. This is the same Apple-1 being resold and the seller is lazy or incompetent 

Considering it sold for $375k at auction twelve months ago, my view is that this is a scam. Someone correct me if I’m wrong.

Should we report it? Seems

Should we report it? Seems strange as you point out no reserve and recently sold.

I reported it to RR Auctions.

I reported it to RR Auctions. They would be in the best position to report a fraudulent listing to eBay since they sold it last year and know the present owner.

Reported

I wrote to the seller and never got any answer. It was time to contact ebay and now the listing ended. 
Maybe eBay asked the seller and he/she stopped the auction.
