Surely the low price must have raised some suspicion when you were bidding and won the beret.?/

Not really.I've come to learn that most bidding on eBay occurs within the last few seconds of the auctions' end.I thought that I would probably be outbid and was a bit surprised when my rather modest bid was the winner.

Thank you Andy for your help.I appreciate it.I contacted the seller with the link to this discussion,asking him to please cancel the auction and he did so immediately and politely.
