    Anybody ever seen a BB tie like this? I normally don't pick up BB ties, but this is in great shape and is unique. 185 year anniversary special addition? :eh:

    passed one exactly like that. maybe the same colors. It was 12 bucks in fancy GW so out of my thrifting range for that particular brand.

    Is the seller telling you no, or is ebay blocking the transaction?
