Once again, I am not a dealer. I'm a collector that answered a great ad. I have no customers.


You know this does add another wrinkle. Personally if you're making a purchase for your personal collection, i would venture to say the "ethics standard" is significantly lower/non-existent. Conversely, if you're a seller buying inventory or something of the like, then i would argue that you have a higher "ethical standard" to adhere to, regarding karma, paying it forward, all that jazz.




You are absolutely wrong.

Morality is absolute; there are no grey areas in right and wrong.


I have to disagree. This is not entirely different than a going out of business sale. If your local electronics shop went under and was having a liquidation sale, you wouldn't buy a large flat screen television at bargain basement price? Arguably it's the same difference if you're paying $500 for a tv worth $5k or something similar. Also, I still stand by my initial statement that some of the blame is on the seller. She was too lazy to check value, or simply didn't care. If I inherit something from a relative, like plates, or something I have no interest in, I'm going to either do a little leg work on my end to make sure I don't get fleeced or ask someone who has more knowledge on the material than i do. Again, I'm not saying this is right or wrong, but I am certainly, unequivocally saying that there IS a gray area. Especially when morals are different from person to person, largely dependent upon ones environment and life experience.

You forgot to drop the mic. Well done

Not to nitpick, but I think you meant subjective.

Morality is a social construct.
