    Default Re: from terry hall a stolen rr watch (By: Fred Hansen)

    Has anyone bothered to email the seller through ebay informing him he's selling stolen property and giving him a link to this thread so he can see for himself how long ago it was listed as stolen?? He does state that he had just received a group of watches that he's selling for someone else.

    Yes Fred, the link is available and I would be happy to send it via a PM or email to Greg.

    So the message board is promoting censorship because of some past problems with the owner of this site; thus the invalid link.

    Here is the original posting in 2006 AND it is not active now:
    HAMILTON 999 BALL POCKET WATCH 21j FANCY STIRRUP BOW

    And here for the record is the complete eBay auction description...

    "HAMILTON 999 BALL POCKET WATCH 21j FANCY STIRRUP BOW CASE Circa: 1930.

    DIAL: Original white porcelain single sunken dial marked with the Ball Logo and: BALL/ OFFICIAL RR STANDARD/ Cleveland. The hands are original black spade blued and mint. Perfect dial.

    MOVEMENT: 16 size, open face, Plate Nickel circular damascening, lever set, 21 Jewels/ Adjusted 5 Positions, and Official/ Standard, Sapphire Pallets, Number B639591 Free of rust, scratches, blemish or distraction."

    CASE: Fancy original screw back and bezel with a blank crest on the back and stirrup tight bow model. This case is very desirable and is original to this model. No dings or brass, excellent to near mint condition. Inside back is marked with the Ball-Hamilton Logo signatures."

    Greg --- My name is Bill Miller. I sell under the user name eastkan on ebay. I was informed this morning a watch I have/had listed is the one you had stolen. I have ended the auction and notified the owner the watch is reported as stolen. I would like you to please contact me. I know this like is 8 years old, so I just hope this reaches you. ------- Bill Miller/eastkan

    Getting back to the topic at hand, Thank you Bill for pulling that watch at least until this all gets sorted out!!!
    I just wish there was more "honesty and integrity" like what you exhibited, among more ebay sellers.
    Kudos my friend!!!
