What did happen, Hudson?  I asked the seller a question in an e-mail, but it wasn't answered.  I don't see the item listed anymore, nor do I see it in the "completed" section.

Holy smoke!  $1525.00!  That is once heck of a price for a note in that condition (looks no better than VF to me).  I was going to bid, but chickened out when the bidding hit $500.  I know Devil's Face solid radars don't show up very often, but still!  What does Charlton (I only have the 2006 edition) estimate for one of these?

Quite a change in final selling price from the solid radar note that started this thread!

My 2009 lists it for $2,200 in Unc.

I had a friend in the States lined up to bid for me but, I chickened out early (tired of eating ramen noodles because of a nice banknote ;D). When it hit the $899 mark I knew it would probably double at the end.

I showed the listing when it first came up to my girlfriend and it was she that pointed out that it said it was a Devil's Face. I hadn't noticed that either until she mentioned it.

Ultimately, it is the seller's responsibility to know what they are selling and to devise a strategy for each listing.  However, if every seller was so knowledgeable about everything, there would be much fewer listings starting at $1.  And even I can't deny there's much more fun to be had from a no-limit auction than from a Best Offer listing.
