I think it is in Gestetner's sukkah, October 10 was Succos!
Despite postal tracking data showing that it was delivered, a Monsey man is claiming he never received the rare 16th-century Hebrew Bible he purchased from an eBay seller in Virginia.
Monsey’s Jacob Gestetner maintains he never received the $7,000 Bible he purchased on eBay from artifact dealer Gene Albert, despite post office records showing that it was delivered on October 10.
According to the standard eBay contract, Mr. Albert must now refund the entire $7,000 to Mr. Gestetner.
A disgruntled Albert said Gestetner either “has it or it was stolen from his mailbox.”
“Either way it’s gone and I’m out the money,” Albert said of the Bible that contains entries dating back to the 1540s.
Albert said he typically checks the “Signature Required” box when shipping such items, but forgot to in this particular instance.
Gestetner declined comment, calling it a private matter.
