Default Modern lemon peel

selling as an antique lemon peel but you cannot convince me that this is a ball from the 1860's

What's the actual price range for a replica lemon peel? I can't see 400+ as anything but someone believing it's actually old.

Default Before and after

If you rotate the 2nd pic posted 90 degrees to the right the stitches match up. I couldn't rotate it before posting or I would have. The buyer of the ball doesnt appear to be the current seller.

Default well

whether it's the same ball or a different ball - every picture reveals multiple clues neither is old - many inconsistencies relative to the stitching, aging, and the relationship between the stitching and the leather. They did a rather poor job of distressing it but were doomed to fail from the start. Good catch if it's the same ass continuing to try and cheat the unwitting or unwary...Ö

no guarantees whether written or implied

I think you just may be correct. Looks like he may have rubbed it up with some good ole Delaware River mud and now it's decades older.

You know I used to like looking at his stuff that he get in but there's no doubt he is deceiving people he's not going to answer me and I reported it to eBay let's see what happens

This morning I asked him "Hi. How'd this ball get so much darker in the last nine days? Was there an oil or preservative rubbed on it? Thanks." which I think was a fair and non-confrontational question but I’ve not received a response.

Rob M

Edited to add: He just now responded with the following “All I did was clean it with a professional neutral leather cleaner. Nothing else was done to it.” Probably should have had that in his description but otherwise I’m fine with him trying to stabilize it so long as he’s not trying to deceive by aging it.

I actually called eBay to report this item and of course they did nothing .So what does this guy do he reports me to eBay and says I'm harassing him. Then ebay sends me a warning email. Unbelievable...Isent him the pictures side by side and said the pictures don't lie my friend

Just in case people have missed my edited note from above with regard to his response to me -

He just now responded with the following ďAll I did was clean it with a professional neutral leather cleaner. Nothing else was done to it.Ē

Probably should have had that in his description but otherwise Iím fine with him trying to stabilize it so long as heís not trying to deceive by aging it.

Anytime anyone "cleans" sometime it's done to remove something else(i.e dirt, grime, etc). It appears his neutral cleaning job has done the exact opposite
