    The seller can cancel the purchase. Of course the bad rating from the buyer will be a big stain on his reputation, and we understand that eBay also punishes sellers that do these kinds of things since it is not a ethical way of doing business.

    Anyone cancelling completed auctions will likely not be on eBay for very long.

    Did you investigate the seller's history before bidding?

    • Yes, I did. He’s been selling for years and has, or had, a 100% positive rating. I don’t know, maybe his story about losing the coin is true, but heYes, I did. He’s been selling for years and has, or had, a 100% positive rating. I don’t know, maybe his story about losing the coin is true, but he had just put the coin up for auction days before so it seems unlikely. He knew the coin is a rarity because he posted the story of its coming into existence. I just don’t think he fully understood the absolute rarity of the coin. Perhaps it was brought to his attention by another bidder or watcher after the closing. Personally I can’t blame him for pulling out after realizing what he has, I mean really, but it is super frustrating, infuriating and unethical. As I said, I’m probably done with eBay for allowing such behavior but I’m sure my one account doesn’t mean s@$t to them. Any reputable place you can recommend?  More ...

    • eBay is the go-to place for online sales, and your only other options are the big online coin dealers.

      Super rare coins like the one you are talkingeBay is the go-to place for online sales, and your only other options are the big online coin dealers.

      Super rare coins like the one you are talking about are never on eBay. They're more akin to museum pieces and get auctioned off in serious, high-stakes auction houses.

      Who knows what the seller's motive was to pull the sale from you. Sorry you had a bad experience. That's the way things go online sometimes.
