I know where I stand on that argument.

This is why we have markets. And freedom. Be happy we don't live in a country where you have to acquire permission to sell things, or pay bribes to locals to open a stand at a market.
A. My original photo shows the serial number, I knew what it was.
B. I did all the clean up and work to it, the current owner did nothing.
C. I also have access to ebay, where you need to pay bribes, er fees to sell something.

No seller's remorse here, and yes he can ask whatever he wants for it. I never asked for a share of the profit (if he makes any).

Just wondered who else has run into this situation before.
