    Paul guessed $2500.

    Turned out to be only a suitcase nuke.

    It does remind me a little bit of the bomb in The Mouse That Roared.

    Everything points to Paul being the big winner. He knew those stems were probably bogus.

    Wow. Those went cheap. I mean, way too rich for my blood, but still awesome.

    Checked the bidding activity with seller, suspicious to say the least.

    You should check more thoroughly. Top four bids were snipes. If I had entered the bidding, my % of previous bids with Great Estate Pipes would have been higher than any of the top four snipers. None of the top four bidders has retracted a bid in the six month history eBay provides. Nothing at all strikes me as suspicious, to say the least. As with all the big name sellers, I have every now and then raised an eyebrow when I look over the bid history in one of Chance's auctions, but I am convinced that he does nothing to manipulate the outcome.
