But it’s not this one…
Then why are 20 people watching it?

The seller will be experienced with using ebay, so will search to see what similar items have sold for in the past.  You can search for SOLD items on ebay, and it gives the last few months.  Here are the ones I found for streimel, so he will be able to see these and see what a reasonable price would be.  If you offer something in this price range, and say that this is what a used streimel can be expected to sell for, he might be more willing to accept your offer.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/144272309766?hash=item21974cbe06:g:lxYAAOSwEdJhBszT
sold for $350

https://www.ebay.com/itm/304246221198?hash=item46d67ce98e:g:T44AAOSwIvRhpmeR
Posted at $425 or best offer, and sold for "best offer", so presumably less than $425

https://www.ebay.com/itm/304221573363?hash=item46d504d0f3:g:lvcAAOSwuCNhjUtK
sold for $299

Excellent idea.  Who here wants to do a mitzvah for a fellow DDFer? I'm sure there are more than a couple of you who know ebay like the back of your hand, probably at least a bit better than @elihak7.  Any צדיק volunteering to add to the juciness of this story by monitoring ebay for him?

Anything special about Stolin tefillin? I know Lubavitch tefillin can be easily identified, but never heard of that regarding Stolin tefillin.

Here on DDF we have a tradition of cooking up delicious soup out of obvious, yet funny typos. Thanks for providing the basic ingredient.

Was the streimel sourced from a reputable dealer? The price you are asking suggests that this is real mink tail, but the synthetic version would go for a fraction of the price. Although you didn't post it, I assume you will include the certificate of authenticity with the product?

Mentioning that it is mink might give him ideas of selling it to someone who will repurpose the fur.

Exactly what I was thinking.  He doesn't need to know what kind of fur it is.  Fox tails sound a lot cheaper than MINK.

'Hassid hair' may be better. He'll want it out of his house as quick as possible.

"Are you sure that it's made with authentic hassid hair? Not Bobov-48 hassid hair, only real hassid hair."

Do all lost streimels end up in Alabama?

Or you could tell him that the gold ribboned ones are the cheapest version, the expensive ones are the ... Colors

But you have to make sure with that Rabbi that if he calls him to verify he shouldn't say anything stupid as he did the first time

That's why I think the authenticity card is the best way to go. He likely won't know otherwise.

Probably at the huge lost luggage thrift shop, and then people bought then to sell on ebay

if that happens, then this whole conversation ends because there is no bigger chance in his being bought over ours. And once this shtreimel goes to a 3rd party….

I love that idea.
 Go for it.
 But first he needs to locate his on ebay, which he's doesn't seem to have found.

   I enjoyed the popcorn in this thread. I'm hoping for a nice ending. Here's another beautiful article to be published in the new @Dan magazine.  Lol
