I looked again and the top bidder with the variable (often) name jumped from £500 to £3333. He/she seems a "fruit case" with a host of name changes and retractions, as well as keeping feedback private.
We'll probably never know who bought this deal and whether it was ever completed.
Talking about good deals on eBay. If today's Daily Express is correct, then the owner of Chelsea football club as instructed his legal people to put in a bid of 85 million for a not yet built yacht or ship that's being advertised on eBay.
Apparently, he already owns three similar vessels, with a market value of 65 million on his best 'toy' of the fleet.
