    Here's the deal. Buyers flake out also. Sellers don't have a "for sure" thing until the money switches hands. If you want a pin, rush out and drop the cash. If you don't, it may be sold out from under you. Unless I personally know the buyer and can trust his word based on knowing him, I will sell a pin to the first buyer even if someone else plans to come "next week" etc. when someone puts a pin up for sale, he wants it gone. The first person with the cash wins. Let this be a lesson for you.

    Quoted from jhanley:

    I dont need a lesson from anyone. If he said the first one that gets there gets it I can except that.But dont tell me your holding it for me unless you intend to. He went straight to my pinside mail and offered it to me personally. Not the marketplace.

    You do need a lesson if this surprised you or pissed you off enough to post about it. That's just how it is. That's the lesson. And you needed a lesson unless you agree with this, in which case you don't need the lesson because you already learned it.

    It doesn't really matter if some says he will hold it for you. You should know that every second you waste not getting it is a chance someone else will. Even deposits don't matter. Deposit money can be refunded. I'm not saying this is right. But it is how it is.

    I just did a pin deal with pdxmonkey and he told me "we have a deal". Because I know him I can trust that. But if it were someone I didn't know, I'd think the deal was about 75% done because it can fall apart at any time. It happens in all aspects of business from real estate to corporate mergers to pinball sales. It's just life.
