    some people get stupid at auctions.

    No reason that I can see for it going so high, its not even a mint example and as you mention has a replacement ribbon and no history with it that might explain its high value. Must be auction madness as Harry suggested.

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    buyer has just asked me to cancel his bid.

    Because most ebay users don't have the first clue what things are worth.

    I often "watch" items on there to see how much they go for: recently an unexceptional TR War Merit Medal 2nd Class with Swords went for just under £100!
