    Probably be ok but you'll probably get more if you let the auction run. Its not safe though. Cash only or transfer via Western Union. PayPal transactions can be reversed along with bank transfer and card payments and thats a lot of money to risk.

    I'm happy with the price I got tbh. It's still god ads up and not a single nibble

    500 less 70 for post and insurance is close enough.

    Well the tracking info says they have been delivered and signed for, I pinged him a quick message to ask if everything is OK, and he replied saying yes, all delivered, all good, etc.

    Whew. :p

    And how long do we give it before the dispute email arrives stating that you only sent a box of bricks? ;)

    I think the message from him confirming that he is happy with them is fairly strong evidence in my favour :p

    It means literally nothing to ebay/paypal if he opens a dispute...
