You may think so at first glance, but take a really close look at it and you'll see that it really isn't all that "low" at all. L8r.

What do you mean by "really low"? Do you mean that the price is really low, or do you mean that it is a really low act to purchase puzzles from Meffert's and then resell them at a profit on Ebay?

Judging by the large rounded corners, this is a restickered meffert puzzle.

Pretty sure the original was a sharp pointed puzzle.

I have one just like it from Meffert's. The stickers are rounded and very thin, almost transluscent. I love Uwe Meffert's designs. But I'm not too wild about these stickers.

I really like Meffert's old stickers: really bright colors and textured.

i bought one of these from mefferts about a month ago. it is exactly the same as the one pictured on the ebay link above. i would agree with people and assume 'annonymous' (nice name by the way) meant it was a low act. nothing wrong with reselling a toy i guess, but to say it was rare is definitely going a bit far. someone might get this confused with the octahedron puzzle which actually IS very rare. maybe that was the intent?

This guy has put some truly rare items up before. Perhaps he forgot where it came from.

...but he's also posted a lot of "I'm clearing out my collection and this has to go along with the rest" auctions, when it's obvious that the thing being auctioned off came from the Meffert's site (case in point: as soon as Meffert's switched to tiles, so did the puzzles that "must go"). L8r.
