Sorry if my rambling narrative was unclear--After confiscation, Pitney Bowes evidently sold the confiscated bottle to a local joblot outfit (rather than destroying it). And then (obviously without letting me or the original seller know they'd done so), these guys using photos and the description of the bottle (obviously without permission of the original seller) offered it for sale a few months later. I then stumbled on the new listing and bought it.From the same/original seller - or someone else?

In the past, I have shipped a dozen or so items to China or Japan, all without issue, with the lone exception, the tin of tobacco (which was prohibited for sales on Ebay anyway, so I should have known). I've offered to mail outside GSP to those Asian buyers, but they always decline.
Of course now that Ebay has changed their payment system, and you don't even receive funds until an item shows delivered, there's no way I would ever use GSP again. Their new system, for me, changes everything.
