"So I had this 200 Yuan Chinese note from 1944 that had some anti-Japanese propaganda from WW2. Put it on eBay at a really low price, thinking ephemera lovers would jack up the bidding. Didn't happen. Sold for $0.99! After it was all said and done, I finally thought to look at a currency conversion table. 200 Yuan is about $29 US. Sigh."
The post was titled "Stupidity" by its creator.
I can appreciate the writer's pain: There are a few auction items I'd like to have back, too.
