Short of inspecting it in person, I think that the only way to be sure would be to have the seller submit it to an authentication service, which would provide a letter of authenticity.

For the money they're asking, I think that it's reasonable. I just went through something similar for my folks, selling some guitars, paintings and other art pieces. On a per-piece basis, the cost was pretty reasonable. I think that it worked out to between $50 and $100, depending upon the item.

Otherwise, I'd have to give an escrow service a consideration. But overall, I think that I'd skip the whole EBay thing. As much as I prize the free enterprise system, EBay just makes me uncomfortable with items like this.
