No commentary, the links explain the issue. I already notified the dealer.

Actually, several of these items are stolen images. I haven't tracked them all down, but the kabuto images are stolen from ShogunArt.

Unless the guy selling it on eBay just bought it from ShogunArt and is reselling it?

Notifying the dealer will do no good. They're crooks. Looking through all the items for sale (there is no consistency in photo style), it seems very obvious that the items are not legitimate offers. I would suggest notifying ebay. The Chinese are notorious when it comes to fraud representation of Japanese swords and armor. In this particular case, this is blatant theft.

I would never buy anything from China.

I notified the dealer as a courtesy. I also notified E-bay.

One of those kabutos sold for $28k a few months back. Another is still owned by Shogun Art and one of the suits of armour is high 5 figures also.

Several of the other pieces are still listed on Shogun for sale.

This seller is a rip off artist.

Yes, that is Trevors auction.

What does that have to do with the other guy who was auctioning off items he did not own??
