I sure hope the buyer gets lucky. It's a great blend, but those tins are a real crap shoot. I didn't spot any warning signs in the images, so maybe this one won't be DOA.

Agreed the older Pease tins aren't the best. Paid dearly for some pretty dessicated Odyssey a few years back.

Godspeed to the winner but I could never pay that much for a blend without making a physical inspection before the purchase.

Have been tracking McClelland...FM Across the Pond 100oz selling for 170-180.
But this 1 takes the cake: https://www.ebay.com/itm/12-assorted-Bags-of-Esoterica-and-18-assorted-Tins-of-Esoterica/332747375125?hash=item4d794a0215%3Ag%3AzBIAAOSwamBbZdhG&_nkw=esoterica+penzance&rt=nc

Wow! That's a lot of moolah for brand new Esoterica! I wonder if it's a tobacconist selling off his shipment from Arango.

Only a fool would buy that without having a seller/buyer clause which would honor return/credit should it be rusted to shit.
4 Noggins is trying to dump off a bunch of GLP's bad tins at riduclously high prices as well...and the new owner has a disclaimer (CYA) listed that states if the contents are junk, the buyer is "SOL."
The only guy I've seen give credit back to a buyer on rusty or damaged tobacco was Steve Fallon (Pipestud). He didn't have to do that, but he did.
The only way I'd buy any of those year tins (2000-2004) is if the seller opened it up, inspected it and mason jarred it. But OTOH I'd have to trust the dude that the real McCoy was put in the jar.
Buyer Beware.
for the record, this is not a bash on Greg Pease.

I wouldn't pay that much for a blend, period. But if the buyer gives the tin a shake and hears rustling inside without opening it, he could try for a refund. But given that these sales are "banned" by eBay, chances are that he's screwed if there's a problem or at best gets his refund and has his account closed, along with that of the seller. Could prove amusing if eBay were ever sued for enabling these "banned" sales.

We cracked an old bag of Krumble Kake at new years... it was delicious! (It was tobacco, no unicorn hair or nothing).
Next week, watched a similar bag sell for 7 or 8 HUNDRED bucks on eBay. I didn't know what to think. Crazy.
Anyway I got Krumble Kake if you got 700 bucks.
Anyone?

Lots of good blends around these days but it is sad to know I’ll probably never get to sample Krumble kake or B scandal. Oh the good ol days ...

Uh...yeah. And it looks like he's still charging $45 for shipping on that lot. If I paid that much for anything, I'm not doing it without free shipping. The cost of the purchase alone would cover it easily. Maybe someone will want a certified cellar of Esoterica for that price.
Same dude is also selling McC's blends in a bulk order as well.
