Todd Schimmel, 26, of Mound, Minn., took back his $371,300 (U.S.) bid Tuesday after doubt was raised about whether the flag had really been flying during the attack. Mr. Schimmel did not return phone calls from The Associated Press on Tuesday. A request for comment e-mailed to the eBay account of the high bidder brought a brief response: "Flag is a fake Im not accepting." David Nicholson, 44, of Orange, Va., auctioned the flag on eBay to raise money for his kidney cancer treatment.
