Beware of this seller.  Title and picture state 2003 set, however description states 2004 set.  The seller is actually selling 2004 set which is worth $2000 less than 2003 set.  Total misrepresentation and I reported it to ebay but they let the auction run to completion, now some poor buyer is going to get ripped off.

very interesting listing.  The photos are of a 2003 set like the title suggest.  I hope the buyer used paypal.

"2004" could be a typo. Did anyone contact the seller with the observation? There were nine bidders.

I really wanted to bid on the 2003 set as the 1/2 is in very short supply.  I contacted the seller and he told me it is 2004 set and picture and title are incorrect, so I didn't bid it up.  He should have ended the listing but kept it up regardless.   I assume all the other bidders above $3400 assumed the picture is correct, he even wrote in the description certificate as shown in picture, well even that is a false statement.

Looks like ebay is on the ball, they finally did something after 3 reports plus maybe some forum members also reported the item.  Just got this email.
