I'm guessing the chances that the seller actually got paid are just about zero.

A LARGE range of different bidders on it in the many 1000s a pop - might all be shillers but one wonders why?

Seems seller has trouble collecting his money:

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/VERY-RARE-AND-CIRCULATED-2016-Bea ... 4310916222

Did not pay 2.png

2016 Beatrix Potter Peter Rabbit 50p coin - £100.

Did not pay 1.png
Not as high as the one before but left positive feedback left for buyer who did not pay who he has referred to as the seller. Weird.

Seems to me like someone is playing games.

I called it on the winner not paying. Pretty common when you get weirdo results like this.

I'm not sure what the point was -- maybe publicity?

Maybe shilling one up to this insane price so he can sell others for less (but still far more than they're worth)?

Ebay used to have a lot of "joke auctions" where people would do this kind of thing just for laughs and attention, but cracked down on that some years back.
