This will be one of the most expensive used covers sold in recent history on eBay. So I thought let me spread the news about this.
There were 2 bidders for this auction with starting price of $999,979 and sold above $100,179 So it's a great news for seller, eBay shareholder(10% commission), US tax department (IRS - 28% capital gain tax) and other tax agency (local, VAT) as everyone will get money from this auction.

Does value of $999,979 of this 140 postal history covers or 37 covers from Saudi Arabia is real value ?
Do any one still collect stamps ?
Do people pay this much money for postally used covers ? (Even though it's to make Forgery or BOGUS by applying rubber stamp, which we don't know whether it's exist or not).
But guess what this postal history collection from Saudi Arabia ARAMCO is for auction again.!! WHY ?
Looks like FAKE bidding. Buyer did not pay to seller. ?
Or buyer did not trust this covers ?
We don't know what happen with transaction, but a great loss for everyone including collector, eBay company(shareholders), US Tax department (IRS) and other state and local tax collection agency.
Not paying to seller is common practice in stamp collection to increase price by SHILL bidding and not paying to seller and cancel transaction so they don't have to pay commission to eBay.!!
