If it wasn't so gross, I probably would not bother, but these exaggerated eBay listings for supposedly "vintage', "authentic", older "display sample" canoes seem to be making a renewed effort of late. Often outright scams, and always totally misrepresented fakes, these things are really just imported repro toys, usually from China and/or Indonesia. Sellers who really know nothing, but claim to have researched them, often describe them as being made by "Old Town", and dating back to the early 1900's. In most cases, they are perhaps 20 years old or less, and are made of cheap balsa with mesh seats, nothing whatsoever like the quality North American cedar and hardwoods, along with caned seats that went into early factory samples made in Canada and the US. Here's just the latest example - something worth about $35 in a souvenir store, but listed for $900 opening bid by a seller who claims it "matches Old Town design": https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Ca...299252?hash=item23a235f034:g:7lQAAOSwzDBbEej6 There have been several such listings recently. Hope no one will be fooled into believing this stuff is anything more than cheap schlock. Caveat Emptor.
