I can count on one hand the number of times in the last 10 years I have gotten a “steal” on ebay. Seems like the rare time these days I find something good, the esniperrs are all over it.
Well, an antique book dealer friend of mine came upon the Antique Civil War Medical Book – Treatise on Fever by Robert Lyons and it was marked USA HOSPITAL DEPARTMENT on the cover! He bought it for $49!
The seller had no idea of this books value nor did he mention it in the title. Miracles do happen. The books is worth well over $1000.
