This 7A38-7070, in decent used condition was listed this morning by an Israeli eBay seller as a 3-day auction with a sensible opening bid price of $150 US, which I'm sure will attract a few bidders. However, apart from possible concerns about the seller's low 80% feedback (worth checking) all is not quite as it should be. Their description does not tally with the photos, regarding: the date of manufacture, the fitment of a Yobokies repro' bezel insert (this watch appears to have an original Seiko insert) and (no) clasp extender. Then there's also the slightly incongrous (for an Israeli seller) French language part. It's been copied from a previous listing*.

Oh, and their eBay user ID is hollylandantiques ('Holly' rather than 'Holy') ?? :roll:

This 7A38-7070 in average worn condition, fitted with a Yobokies repro' bezel insert and a bracelet clasp extender, was listed yesterday afternoon, by a French eBay seller, as a 10-day auction, with an opening bid price of £100 (Sterling - not Euros).

Specifically, it's been copied verbatim from that one  partially quoted above (from page 7 of this thread), which was listed by a French eBay seller in April 2018. If one gives the Israeli seller the benefit of the doubt, perhaps they may possibly have created their listing by using eBay's 'Sell One Like This' feature. But why pick a year old listing ? They've changed their title and uploaded 6 photos. So why didn't they sort out the description ? Very strange. :/
