This doesn’t bode well...

Gemini IV flown Fliteline medallion for a Buy-It-Now of $34.75.

There's a known issue with a Chinese based eBay seller copying past space listings and putting them as low priced buy-it-nows.

They are always created by new users with zero feedback then removed once they sell.

Indeed, but we should still post them here when possible so people know what to look out for.

Pretty much, if it looks too good to be true, it probably is.

They've been cloning listings for countdown number segments, shuttle tiles, autographed photos and Apollo 1 crew patches as well. I try to flag them with eBay as I see them...

Saw this eBay listing for a Gemini IV "flown" Fliteline medallion and photo and would like any advice. It seems too good to be true and the sell has no feedback.

Editor's note: Threads merged.

You were right to be skeptical. As noted above, if it is from a Chinese zero feedback account at a too good to be true low price, it is a scam listing...

Thanks Robert! I'm glad that I didn't bid on it. I think it was taken down, but appears that now the same seller is listing the following: 253275024765.
