Cool Bargain hunter!!!!

Terry,
Comparing the rest of his articles for sale this has got to be the jewel in the crown by the price, a long queue around the block for this bargain

I messaged the seller, he was grateful for the heads up and he has adjusted the price.

Just amended price. Now 4.99........ a great reduction from 499 makes it even more of a bargain. Perhaps he is watching you Home Guard...

When listing an item for sale (or bidding) if a comma is used [4,99] rather than a full stop [4.99] then eBay ignores the comma and reads it as 499

I actually did suspect it was a typo when looking at his other items, but was just wanting to have a bit of fun.

Oh, and mine is still avaiable for 489.00, so don't delay!!! That's right 10 off his original price. I'm standing by the phones as I am sure I'll be getting a flood of calls...but probably not from takers!!!
