Just wondering if anybody else got an email from a "Billy Ar" attempting to sell a Success to the Railroad flask. The email had all the pictures matching those of one listed on ebay:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/034-SUCCESS...p2047675.l2557

When I received the email, there was still 30 minutes left on it with bidding at $910.00. The con artist was asking $500.00

Watch it out there, everybody.

The one on eBay caught a lot of attention because of the strike. It's probably the best example anyone could ever get, hence the price.

Thanks for the heads up on the fraudster.

Here's a snip of the email. Anybody familiar with the highlighted? Looked familiar but I couldn't place it.
